I've been kicking around the idea of a pizza party of some sort, inspired by a Curious George story. (He's a big source of inspiration for us, no doubt!) When I landed on one of our favorite restaurants -- one that makes excellent pizza, to boot! -- I fell in love with the idea of a Pizza Chef Party.
Pepperoni, olives, dough and cheese
Come help us celebrate, won't you please?
The girls knew they were having a party on Saturday, the 17th, but they had no idea what or where. I waited until about an hour before showtime to tell them. They squealed with excitement!
We all headed out together, and Daddy and the girls dropped me off to get the decorations in place. We were very thankful that Miss Jenny could join us, too. She captured tons of great pictures!
|It wouldn't be a party without a party banner!|
|The table was set...aprons, chef's hats, and plenty of wipes!|

|Hugs for Miss Jenny!|
When the guests started to arrive, they picked out an apron...
|J was the first guest to arrive. She's such a sweet friend from preschool.|
|Guido was in the house!|
|All the chefs lined up together!|
|Checking out the pizza oven!|
Once the dough was ready, the kiddos put on gloves (which was an activity in itself) and decorated their pizzas!
While the pizzas were cooking, we played a rousing game of Pizza BINGO!
At last, it was time to eat! I was amazed that most of the kids ate their ENTIRE pizzas!

Finally, the yummiest snickerdoodle pie was served, and we sang HAPPY BIRTHDAY, first to Baby A...
...and then to Baby B!
What a fun party! Full of friends and food...and relatively limited mess! :) :)
What a perfect way to celebrate SIX for A&B!!!
