For Morgan's Fourth Birthday we had a Super Fun Chef's Party!

The Party table, isn't the pinata cute? My friend Tisha made it, thanks Tisha!

When the kids arrived we outfitted each of them in their personalized-apron and hat. I think they looked so cute! I found the Chef hats online, they were perfect. I had ordered aprons from the same website, but they were back-ordered. I was bummed that I would have to pay more somewhere else! I drove to Hobby Lobby where I knew they had red aprons, which is what Morgan wanted. They had plenty of aprons, and when I got to the register the aprons rang up for HALF PRICE! I was so thrilled, it made the aprons each more than a dollar less than they would have been online, score!

All of the kids that came (3 couldn't make it): Jessica, Derrick, Megan, Kennady, Morgan, Lily and Abigail. They are all ready to get their pizza making lesson from Morgan's daddy.

After their pizza making lesson the kids started right in making their pizzas. They all had so much fun pounding the dough, spreading the sauce, sprinkling the cheese and placing the pepperoni. There was a lot of laughing and talking, we also sang a P-I-Z-Z-A song- to the tune of B-I-N-G-O. I made it up right on the spot, pretty brilliant, huh? The kids seemed to like it anyway!

While the pizzas baked we opened presents and went outside to do the pinata. All of the kids loved hitting the pinata!

Swing hard Morgan!

The Birthday Girl gets another turn- to no avail- the pinata proved indestructible. Daddy had to come to the rescue and let the candy out!

After the pinata we sang Happy Birthday to Morgan and she blew out her candles. It seems that I forgot the proper order of things for a birthday party- oh well! Right after Ryan served up the pizzas, I cut the cake and served it too. Needless to say, there were quite a few kids who took almost their entire pizza home with them. Thanks everyone for coming it was so fun!

What a cute birthday party idea. The kids look so adorable in their pizza hats and ready to make their own pizza. The picture of Morgan in her hat with a smile on her face is priceless. You are very creative and it looks the party was a total success. I can't believe Morgan in 4. My baby will be 4 in 4 months. WOW!

What a great party! You are a great mom! The kids must have had such a great time. I loved the chocolate cake, it must be her favorite, we know it's not yours.

What a good idea for a party! That looks like so much fun!

Wow, I can't believe you have so many kids, and they're so big! It's been a while. Yeah, it's fun to see Amy and Paige on occasion. My niece and nephew take piano lessons from Ryan's mom. They live around the corner from her. Cute huh!
