It's hard to believe my youngest daughter is 7 today! We have to watch every penny since my hubby took such a pay cut. That didn't mean we couldn't have a fabulous birthday. I made a delicious Funfetti cake with cream cheese frosting. Total cost around $5.00 with the plates, candle, and metal throw away pan. It tasted just as good as a $25.00 half a sheet cake from our local grocer.
We took the girls to Chuck E. Cheeses. There is one near our house but it's really run down. We chose to go to one a bit further out. We had a coupon for tokens 100 for $20.00. Surprisingly, this lasted the girls for 2 whole hours! I couldn't imagine having an actual party there. I looked at one of the cakes they were offering and mine was twice the size for a third of the price.
Our next decision was to get pizzas from Little Caesar's. What a great value their pizzas are! $5.00/each for a sausage and one pepperoni. The cost of this birthday was around $45.00. We had a blast!
Later that night my mother came over and we had home made chicken flautas and Spanish rice. I will post those pics tomorrow.
