Paige's Birthday Party


For Paige's 12th birthday she wanted to have a Halloween Costume party with just a few friends on our street. We had fun decorating and making our cupcake Jack~O~Lantern cake. It was a cute and simple cake to do. My mom found this beautiful queen costume for Paige and sent it to her in time for the party. I thought that all the kids looked cute in their costumes. They all watched Halloweentown and played the Wii. Then it was time for cake. Paige bent down to blow out the candles and as I was taking the picture I noticed that her hair looked like it was hanging into the flames of the candles. I looked up from my camera to tell her to pull her hair back , but it was already on fire. I quickly grabbed her hair with my hand and put it out. Thank goodness it wasn't worse than it was. Only a few hairs were burnt. her hair is so long and thick that I can't even tell. It sure smelled awful though ! So that added to the party excitement ! It was a fun and simple party and now I'm ready for bed. I'm planning to work on my scarecrow to put in my outside display tomorrow and make one or two more Jasper's tomorrow. Good Night !

Wow, what a festive party. The food & the table look fantastic. I can't believe her hair caught on fire - that is an awful smell. Glad she's ok.

Such a lovely party! I'm sure it made Paige feel like a queen. The cake is darling and that table of goodies is making me hungry!
