Having A Crisis?... Throw A Party!


In the midst of a string of Family Crisis we had Princess T's 6th Birthday to Celebrate... and so... Having a Crisis?  Throw a Party! *Winks*  It works for us... and nothing has more Positive Uplifting Energy than a good Party!!!


So we brought in the Marines to set up the new Bohemian Princess Gypsy Tent {AKA: Grandpa} ... 


OMG, it didn't look so big in the box... this is practically taking up the G-Kids entire Bedroom! *LOL*  But it's all good, they'll probably want to sleep in here the Night anyway... {Which they did...}


And Gramma... fueled on Starbucks *Winks* set about planning the Spread... Because the challenge was that everyone got called in to work throughout the day so we decided upon an Impromptu Party where Guests could come & go at the discretion of their hectic Schedules... having individual little cakes & tarts... AMAZING Candy Apples from 'Safeway'... 


Little individual Starbucks -N- Ben & Jerry's Ice-Creams in various flavors... 


Dora The Explorer Sippin Straws which turn Milk into delish Strawberry or Caramel Delights...


Pizza, Italian Cheese Bread, Hot Wings...


And Party Favors...


We're not really big on Organized Events anyway, we prefer Spontaneous Fun that unfolds Naturally and without stresses or juggling of schedules...


And if you show up early, late or days later... well, you're still sure to have a good time at the Bohemian Valhalla Parties, we'll fit you in and hook you up with an impromptu offering of whatever we have... it's all good... Party extensions are the Norm for us... 


You'll likely come away with some temporary Body Art of some kind...


And a full stomach...


Which we'll take care to ensure will be a Feast For The Eyes first... Nourishing your Spirit, Soul, Senses...


And Body...


And when you wake up from your Sugar & Visual Delight Coma...


Well, it will be a brand new week... *LOL*  And you can always be my Guest at the Gym if you overindulged and need to work some of it off! *Smiles*  I 'Heart' my new Gym Membership at 'Lifetime Fitness'...


The Bohemian Princess in her brand new Gypsy Tent... showing off September Birthday Barbie...


You're invited to come inside Princess T's little Bohemian Palace anytime...


She squeezed The Son in there... Uncles are such good Sports aren't they when it comes to the requests of Lil Princess Nieces! *Winks*


And after the House Party... well, it was time for a Pizza Parlour Party... 


With a bit of Equestrian Fun...


And why oh why, when it comes to having the rare Family Group Portrait, does it look like everyone but Me is in front of a Firing Squad?!? *LOL*  Well, Prince R's shirt does say 'Surrender'... *Smiles*


But on a less serious Note than posing for the obligatory Family Mug Shot... there were lots of Smiles and Fun at 'Chuck E. Cheese'...


And when Gramma messes up taking the only pix of the elusively & reluctantly photographed Aunt Tina... well... thank Goodness for Photoshopping! *Smiles*


And the equally reluctantly photographed Grandpa... who will often resort to Covert Ops to avoid camera detection... *Winks*  Thank goodness we distracted him with Token Counting so Gramma could sneak up on him huh? *LOL*  Notice the Evil Eye he's glaring at me with... *LMAO*


MORE Pizza anyone?  Hey, you'll never come away hungry my Friends... we'll feed you 'til you can't eat no more... *LOL* {Yes, I realize it's bad Grammar... Winks}


And the G-Kids will show off the miles & miles of Prize Tickets they won...


Almost 600 this particular Party Day...


Thank goodness there's automatic Ticket Counters! *Whew*


We were virtually tangled up in and buried alive in Tickets...  


So they were able to come away with Prizes from THE WALL... you know, the better ones than the CASE Prizes... *Smiles*  Bohemian G-Kid Valhalla THE WALL Prizes are! Their little eyes were glazing over like Gramma's does at a Junquing Expedition... or Grandpa's at 'Cabelas' or a Hunting Expedition... *Smiles*


And when we get Home, even more Partying... with Dancing & Music by our budding Musician Prince R... who has moved from the Flute to the Bells now... {which to Gramma looks like a Xylophone... I thought Bells were... well... BELLS?!? Winks}


And as well as building Calypso Style Musical Talent this will also build his Muscles, because the thing weighs a ton I tell you!!! *Smiles*  And he's schlepping it to School on a regular basis...


We Thank You for coming to our Parties my Friends...

And remember... Having a Crisis?  Well, throw a Party!!!



And speaking of Parties, come join us over at the Blog Party Doni is Hosting at FAITH, GRACE & CRAFTS!

Blessings & Fun from the Arizona Desert... Dawn... The Bohemian... and the Bohemian Party Crew
