Gracie had a grand time
The kids just loved to play!
As you have probably guessed this took a lot of work. After it was all done Russ asked me (more than once) if it was worth all the work to me. I feel like it is. I enjoy doing parties it is something I like to create and I feel like it is okay to celebrate big over my little boys life (I did NOT spend a lot of money) but since it is something that I can not usually pull off on my own, I will not be doing this every year.
A HUGE thank you to my 14 year old niece who drew the Candy land characters for me. I just gave her the game and some poster board and viola! She is AMAZING. I colored then and she would have done a much better job, but I could not ask her to give up any more of her time.
Also I want to thank my in-laws for having the perfect backyard for Candy land, it made it a lot of fun.
