There were balloons galore all over the hall and the kids had a great time grabbing at the cords to them and seeing how many they could each collect.
Some of the guests at the party....
From books, to cds and dvds -music, movies -plus cool toys for the "artist" side of Maya,a fashion doll, clothes, some fancy boots, and a snazzy bag, even an IPod Shuffle, there was also this -from the four therapists! (Mandy's not sure if they got that for Maya to enjoy or for her to curse them once she gets it going and doing the Karaoke thing! Earplugs will be a new item on the "to purchase" list, I think!)
merchant financing that took place! This morning, Mandy and Ken took the food to the Food Bank and the stuff filled a cart to almost overflowing, causing the attendant there to comment "You got all this from a birthday party?"
Yep, we sure enough did! How nice it was that people who came brought those food donations and for Maya to learn there is a very good gift that comes from giving, not just receiving!
What a great bunch of kids they were! Played together so nicely, and from the squeals of laughter, a good time was enjoyed by all. Many thanks to the parents who brought these children to share the occasion with Maya and her family -for all the gifts and especially for the donations to the Food Bank too!
All very much appreciated!
