Kenzies Birthday party

We had Kenzies birthday party on Saturday. I met another new lady in town a few weeks ago. It's funny though her name is Terri also and she just moved up here this summer just before us. She also has 4 kids (2 boys and 2 girls) and drives a Durango, like me. The funniest thing we have in common is both of us have daughters who turned 9 on Monday. Why am I saying all that? Well because we had a double birthday party for the girls together. They had a lot of fun.

Happy Birthday Kenzie and Gabe!


The first part of the party was skating. They had fun. Some kids weren't so good as they probably haven't gone skating alot. If I knew before this that it was only $7 for the whole family we may have gone already! That is pretty cheap and I actually like to skate some myself. Izzak and Joshua have been on skates since they were 3 so they did well. Kenzie was getting it and actually stayed on her skates more then her bottom. Madison didn't get off the sidelines much except for when I would skate with her.

The skating was good first since it kind of wore them out a little they weren't so rambunctious for when we did the cake and ice cream.
Here is everyone singing Happy Birthday.

They got a little jumbled with 2 kids being in the birthday song though.....
After cake and ice cream we did a pinata. The kids had fun but that thing was hard to break! We let all the kids that were their invited for the birthday party to go first a couple of times before letting the bigger boys like Joshua and Izzak to hit it. They couldn't break it either. It was funny though, when Joshua stood up to do it the whole room took a few steps back like they knew he was dangerous with a big stick. Some of the kids Kelly picked up and spun them around it was cute. He and uncle Josh did a lot of the pinata stuff and poor uncle Josh got hit in the hand by the stick when one of the bigger boys was hitting, he ended up with a bruise on his hand. When they finally got it broke enough it came off the rope Kelly picked it up and tore it apart, the kids all dove in for candy.
After that was the gift opening. Both girls did pretty good getting gifts, Kenzie got a new 35mm bratz camera and used all her film by the next day. We bought her a silver bracelet, clothes, a birthday bratz doll and a new purse. She loves purses!
Like I said she did pretty well there were more presents and she has gotten over $80 in cash gifts so far so she is pretty excited to go shopping for herself with her own money. She is just trying to decide if she wants to save it a little longer to have more.

what a great birthday!!!

I was at a b-day party once that was having the same problem-- couldn't get the pinata to break. the dad took a swing with a baseball bat and the thing went flying across the yard and hit me in the head!

Those are pretty cool coincidences with the other mom named Terri. It looks like you ladies put on a fun party for the girls. Pinatas are fun at any party, but some of them are hard to crack, unlike some people's heads. Hope the bruise heals fast.
