It turned out to be an absolute riot! Mary has some hilarious friends, and I can totally see how they are all such good friends. They all have fun-loving, positive, random personalities...exactly like Mary. She has a great group of friends!
The party was absolutely crazy, but the kids had a blast, and I kept reminding myself that it was only 120 minutes of madness, that would create memories for a lifetime. Worth it...yes.
|We put gummy bears in the bottom of bowls and covered them with whip cream. The kids had to get the gummy bears from one bowl to another, without using hands. ;)|
|Knocking over water bottles with tights on their heads. There was a grapefruit in the legs of the tights|
|Shaking bells out of shoeboxes|

The games ended with a giant toilet paper, wrapping paper fight. Totally nuts!
Mary opened presents, and obviously her friends know her well. She got lots and lots of craft stuff. ;) She was thrilled. Her friends are so nice.
The kids ate loads of chocolate ice cream topped with whip cream, gummy bears and skittles (Mary's choice for her Birthday treat) , and then hung out until the party was over.
|The hooligans: Jett Cherry, Lydia Muelstien, Lexi Johnson, Avery, McKenna Garner, Tagg Charchenko, Bailey Sweat, and Ben.|
I don't think my ears stopped ringing for hours after the last person left, but the party was a success, Mary was smiling and happy, and it was so much fun! Whew! We love you Mary!
