Wordful Wednesday-Happiness is Having a Circus Themed Party!

I mentioned last week that the BIG CIRCUS THEMED PARTY for the twins 6th Birthday was coming up…..it’s THANKFULLY come and gone but I couldn’t let today pass without my glimpse of part of our Holiday Happiness.  The holiday season six years ago brought us the birth of our high risk twins and so each year I’m reminded to be particular thankful during Thanksgiving and then we get to celebrate well into January the birth of all of our children.

Now, before you go any further, I’d urge you to take a quick peak of the post I just published about the party.  It’s more cohesive and shows more aspects of the party than this post, which is really just showing you a glimpse of what holiday happiness looks like in these parts during a Circus Themed Birthday Party!

How to Throw a Circus Themed Birthday Party

Fun, right?

Here’s more:

It was so fun to get the kids’ picture in this clown cut out! {This is John}

The older kids helped with the game stations and the kids loved the face painting.  {Isn’t my niece adorable?}

Cotton Candy?  Yes, please.  {This is Grace and Grace.  Part of a group of BFF’s}

Can we just give my sister a big round of applause, please, for taking all of these pictures? {Rachelle and me}


Hot dogs, popcorn, cotton candy and game tickets?  Score!

I hope their wishes came true!

Such a fun gang showed up to help celebrate!

The gifts were a real hit too!

      We did NOT hire out. Unless you consider borrowing the older kids friends to help with games and set up. 🙂

      It’s one of the perks of having multiples. One can justify going a little “bigger” because it’s for more than one. {wink}

    This party looked so awesome! And can I say how much you and your sister look alike? Are you twins? Or maybe its just that I am dead tired…but it took me a second to recognize which was you…

      Not twins….15 months apart, but you can definitely tell we are sisters, right? 🙂
