With how crazy this time of year is, coupled with how trashed my house currently is with Christmas decor, wrapping paper, stacks of gifts that are patiently hiding in plain sight in plain cardboard boxes waiting to be wrapped, planning a birthday party with a gaggle of kids to descend on our house was not an option.
This is the first year I didn’t plan anything major – there was so much going on what with Little Dude joining our family and so many time consuming things related that, the days simply got away from me. So to pacify the Princess Nagger, I let her talk me into hosting a smallish birthday party at the dreaded Chuck E. Cheese. Because it was so close to Christmas, the friends she wanted to join her were unable to, save for her very best friend.
They played games:
Ate pizza and collected as many tickets as possible for the final prizes at the end. Then it was time for the coronation:
But the highlight for Princess Nagger was the thing she looked forward to the most – the Ticket Blaster:
She managed to collect 273 tickets in the Ticket Blaster. She could barely contain her excitement. Between the tickets she and her BFF collected, and the contributions from both the hubby and I, she managed over 3000 tickets which she split with her BFF so they could each get a giant slinky plus a few other things. This was the first visit to Chuck E. Cheese that wasn’t chaotic, since we went early on a Saturday morning and beat all the crowds.
Do you do Chuck E. Cheese?
