Birthday Craziness

I haven't blogged in awhile - but I figured these pictures were definitely blog worthy, so I decided to post. Lauren just had her 7th birthday. I am so NOT a birthday mom - I hate throwing a party - it gives me serious anxiety. Thankfully, Lauren - being who she is - already knew exactly what she wanted to do. We had THE LIZARD WIZARD come and do the party for us. All I had to do was provide the cake and the goodie bags. (Seriously - this was my kind of party). It was so great - they bring in all sorts of animals and let the kids have a chance to intereact. I am posting a few pictures for your viewing enjoyment!

Yes - that is actually a tarantula on Lauren's head. She thought this was SOOOOOOOOOO cool - I was completely creeped out and you couldn't have paid me money to do it. But it was a big hit with the kids.
Snakes were also a popular item. They even had a 12 foot long snake that the kids all helped hold. So interesting . . . . .
Lauren getting a kiss from a lizard.
So - I had to throw this picture in because this is a good memory for me. Lauren has had a HUGE crush on 'Jake' for the whole school year. He came to her party, and Lauren was so thrilled. He came a little late - and as soon as she heard the doorbell ring - she jumped up and started running - saying "Jake is here!". He came in and she threw her arms around him and it was caught on camera. SO cute - it makes me laugh. But - it was a great party, Lauren had a lot of little friends there and she declared it was her BEST birthday ever!! Bonus points for mom - YEA!!!
