I just wanted to share a bit of reality from Lizzie's birthday celebration. Here are some of the "after" pictures from her party. It really doesn't look so bad, but if you've ever cleaned up a mess made by children you know just how bad it can be. Several sweeps through the room, one mess at a time, takes forever to clean up!
I have to admit, even after all that cleaning up sticky messes, sweeping, and moving furniture, it was all worth it. Lizzie experienced a party of a lifetime. And so did all her little friends. Can't put a price tag on those kinds of memories.
