Alright, when Ansley told me she wanted a birthday party for the first time since she was 1 (we are usually at Disney), I jumped on it. We started planning and crafting months ago. I was all too excited that she wanted a rainbow theme because there awesome ideas everywhere. She insisted that we invite every child in her first grade class, “because I don’t want anybody to be sad they missed my party”, I love her sweet spirit. So, of course I whipped up 18 invitations and off to school they went. I found the cutest, dress, I bought a lot of goodies—the plan being to serve all the sugar and sweetest they could hold and ship them home right in time for night service at church. Oh, yes did I mention we had to squeeze our party into a Sunday afternoon, thanks to all the extracurricular ball playing that we, and all of our friends have going on. We made favors and, decorations, I think that child had a new game planned everyday for a month. She is going to be a party planner, I just know it—or a cruise ship activities director. Then it happened she woke up Friday morning with her neck as swollen as her head, in fact she didn’t really have a neck anymore. We will skip through the details and let me just say my only days away from being 7-years-old daughter has the kissing disease. Thank fully with dr. permission we partied on, in between two two-hour naps and a 12 hour night’s sleep… Pray for us!
We had lots more going on, but the point is it was a lot of fun. We are so thankful that she felt well, and that her friends were still willing to brave the germs!
