Birthday Party Extravaganza

I actually have two posts today, but I am holding one for tomorrow because they don't really mesh very well. Tomorrow you get "things that crossed my mind during sex last night" which I promise is going to be kinda funny and pretty enlightening.

But, since I don't feel like writing that in the same post as Munchkin's birthday party recap (and since so many of my readers are probably in church right now...), that can wait until tomorrow.

I was going to bake her a cake, but in tribute to the postponed "Chicago Cupcake Crawl", I decided to make cupcakes instead. And then, in a fit of Back-in-the-day Inspiration, I went one step further and made the best kind of cupcakes there are...Ice Cream Cone Cupcakes. Yeah, if you have never had the experience, you should do so immediately.

She went to the mall with a couple of her friends and Smoking Hot Roommate came over to help me bake and decorate the cupcakes. And eat like a dozen of them before we packed them up:-).

The party was lots of fun, and really super easy, in retrospect. We went to a place that had bowling (Munchkin loves bowling:-)), video games, pool, etc. Basically, that meant that I just had to order a bunch of nachos and other assorted munchies for the kids and let them have their own fun. Me, The Boy, SHR and the Rocket Scientist and Big Sis then pretty much just hung out and ate bad food. And more cupcakes.

The party ended up kind of dragging longer than expected. A couple of the parents came to get the kids but ended up sticking around for a drink, or two, and some food. Which is all good:-) It was fun! Then we went home and Munchkin crashed at about 8:30 and didn't wake up until 9:00 this morning. Apparently the excitement got her all worn out;-).

Of course, her falling asleep is not always a bad thing...hee hee:-). And that is very much a part of what led to tomorrow's blog topic:-D. So you have that to look forward to! Until then, I hope everyone enjoys their Sunday!

Ice cream cone cupcakes...I'm going to have to give it a shot! Sounds like the birthday party was a hit!

Sounds great... the cake, that is. ;) I'm expecting some crazy kinda cake from Sarah made with Girl Scout Thin Mints. I can't wait to see if she tops last year's Mountain Dew Cake!

Ice cream cupcakes are such a tease! I thought the would actually involve ice cream rather than a crappy cone.

I've never had these Ice Cream Cupcakes. I'll have to investigate.
