A Birthday Party!

In our family we believe birthdays should be celebrated, honored and reveled in. None of this, well birthdays are only for children, I don't need a cake, I don't need a fuss. Well, I think everyone should have a fuss on their own special day. We get one day that is all our own, and it should not be ignored. My oldest turned 35 on the 11th and this time the party planner was her sister. She came up with the perfect theme (yes, we do themes). It was to be a Hamilton Birthday!

The Broadway hit has taken our family by storm (what an incredible show it is!) and both my daughters know the soundtrack backwards and forwards. Well, she did a great job incorporating all the aspects of the show in my dining room. We had $10 bills hanging from the ceiling, little tin soldiers,  a Betsy Ross flag and Samuel Adams beer. When my oldest daughter arrived, we all sang the song Here Comes the General (with special lyrics written for her). And my youngest was dressed as Alexander Hamilton!!

We had a duel in the street (yes, those are Nerf guns), there was a trivia game regarding the show and we enjoyed the most luscious specialty cake made with beer and Irish cream! It was incredible! 

It was a fun time, enjoyed by all. And no one got killed, just had a lot of laughs!

We sang, and made wishes and we didn't want the night to end. It is always such a treat to all be together.

Happy Birthday to my girl! You deserve the best! Always, Kit

I'm with you on this one. You only have a very special "you"day once a year.

Wanted you to know that I'm getting my blog An Artist's Life back running but I'm working on the button you can press to go to it from my other blog. Once did that all the time but now, for the life of me.......... Happy Birthday to your daughter. Diane

Kit - what a wonderful celebration! When the kids were younger, we put a lot of effort into their parties - decorations, food, games - all to go with a theme. It was a lot of work AND a lot of fun. Maybe it is time to resurrect the tradition!
