C Bear's Hula Party

I'm still not sure what possesses us parents to throw birthday parties for our kids. We invite small children over to our homes and practically beg them to make a mess with the frosting and punch. We see the birthday child feel special and loved, and the other parents are thrilled that their kids are running around like little maniacs in someone else's house. In the end, it's worth it because we all end up having a blast- even with food ground into the carpets.

This year for Claire's second birthday we had a Hawaiian themed party. The menu consisted of sweet chicken tacos, saffron rice, chips & salsa, pineapple punch and brownie cupcakes for dessert. To use the words of a certain TV food chef who drives us bonkers- YUM O! We dressed up for the occasion and had every guest take a picture under the fake palm tree wearing the big straw hat and a lei... lots of fun!

she loves the fact that it's all about her!

everybody hula!
