Apart from the food, T.G.I.F. provided really good entertainment -- lots of kiddie games and prizes, a cool host who led balloon twistings, a magic show, and the highlight of the event, a bubble show! Check out all the fun-filled pics:
It was an overall successful event, and I'm glad I decided to do it at a restaurant rather than pretend to have all the time to do the planning and the set-up ourselves. Not only was I spared the hassles of talking to several different party suppliers, I also got great reviews from our guests who said that the food and venue of T.G.I.F. was the absolute best choice for the party. The fun and the smiles last Sunday more than made up for my past days' crappy afternoons (as you may have already read previously).
I am once again, filled with joy and thanksgiving for the provisions that God has sent our way. A year ago, we would not have imagined how we could have afforded such a celebration. But His faithfulness remains, and He is greater than all of our concerns. From Him all things are made possible. Including this 7-year old's birthday party :-)
To Him be all the glory and praise!
