the short people party | mollie kendall photography

Last weekend we let our 9 year old daughter invite over some friends for a karaoke slash dance party. It was Critter’s idea and it just all sounded like work to me, especially considering it wasn’t even the girls birthday. But, when it was all said and done, I’m glad we did it. I was worried because most of the time when you have a group at this age and of this size, several pair off, kids are excluded and someone ends up crying in the corner. But not this day. The girls had a really great time! Many thanks to my brother-in-law… our lighting technician who brought over a disco ball and sound activated lights and to my sister… our balloon support system who brought over more balloons than any human should have in their home at any given time. I, of course, took photos the entire four hours and stressed over how to cull them down to an acceptable blog post amount. The funniest part about it is the *3* requests from these 9 year olds that I “tag them on facebook” whenever I was finished.
…Said in my best old embarrassing parent voice…. “oh how the times they are a’changin”
