This might be a good time to gush about what an amazing help Stacy was! She isn't pictured because I was too absent-minded and she was behind the camera for most of the party. So full of ideas...she'd call me early in the morning in the month before the party because she'd gotten a new idea for a game or decoration she couldn't wait to share. She arrived on Thursday and slaved away pretty much all weekend. Her only break was a few hours on Saturday! She even stripped the sheets off the guestroom before her 6:30 a.m. return to the bus station with two exhausted children. Everyone should have friends like mine; I don't deserve them, but I'm not complaining.

Ethan's great-aunt and uncle sent this after they heard about the Paris Party. My first thought was, "This is the sweetest gift ever!" My second thought, after opening the box and trying to fit a few pieces together, was "Aaaaack, this thing is impossible!" accompanied by a horrible sinking feeling that I was possibly being punished for something. But after a couple of afternoons working on it, I was back to the first thought. Ethan and I had a great time, and he spent most of the time either exclaiming about how cool the puzzle was or how cool I was for helping him with it.
We were thinking of putting it out for the kids to work on at the party, but now I think it will make a great centerpiece. We love it!
