We had Hannah's butterfly party today; it was chilly and slightly windy, overcast with a threat of rain. The wind let up, it got slightly warmer and it never rained :)
I made the butterfly cake from the Betty Crocker website(not as simple as it looks). I bought the sucker that goes on top on Thursday and somehow didn't have it when I made the cake last night. I came home for the cake today just before the party and stopped back @ the mall for another sucker. The candy store wouldn't take my card for a purchase under $3 :( I left the candy store and due to all the stress and lack of sleep I had a total melt down outside of the store. I sat there on the floor against the wall and cried. I sat there for about 5 min, till a seriously nice lady stopped and asked me what was wrong and after I told her the whole story she asked me what would make things better and I told her to make it so they would take my card so I could get my sucker for my daughter's cake. She asked how much they were and I told her $1.25, she handed me $3 and told me to go and get a couple of suckers and to have a great party. I know it sounds silly that I had this melt down, but, seriously between stress and lack of sleep I was at my breaking point.
Enjoy the pics!

That pinata went through 2 rounds of little kids beating on it before 10 yo hailey took a few whacks at it!
That's one of the eyes from the pinata, lol
It's her favorite!
She also got 2 books to go w/tag and a stuffed snoopy
It was so windy that the guys had to shield the wind so SHE could blow out the candle...and we could only light the number, none of the others :(
All in all it was a good party :)
