At one point, while we were watching the movie, Hannah turned to me and said, "Mom, this is the best party ever!" That made all the preparations and lack of sleep more than worth it!
I also have to state for the record, that these children were all a delight to have in our home! They were very well behaved, extremely polite, and kind to the little ones. Their parents are doing a great job raising them, and they are all welcome in our home any time!
