Last Thursday, Carnival/Apokries started in Greece. It's one of my favorite times in Greece because it's another reason for the kids to get dressed up. We attended our first party last weekend and the kids had a great time. I loved it because I was able to sit back, sip coffee and have an adult conversation as I watched the kids dance and play with their friends.
The entertainer that was hired for the party was excellent! She kept a room full of kids entertained for more than two hours. I made sure to get her number for our future parties. She's perfect!
Even Foti enjoyed dancing, which is rare. He wore his Anakin Skywalker costume complete with his lightsaber.
The costumes were so colorful. Girls typically wear frilly, princess- type dresses. All of the girls looked very pretty.
Although we have a lot of princess costumes, Izabella chose to wear her rock star costume. She's officially obsessed with Hannah Montana. Because we still haven't found her a blonde wig, she asked if we could color her hair. I thought that was pretty cute, but the anwer is "no". We'll keep looking for a wig!
Alexandra wore her ladybug costume. She danced and twirled all night!
My munchkins had a blast throwing streamers and confetti at me all night. I think that I was probably the only mother allowing my kids to cover me with confetti again and again. They laughed so hard that I couldn't refuse. Remnants of the party were everywhere...in my hair, in my purse, in the car, in my shoes and even in my kitchen.
At the end of the night...
We were very tired and ready to go home, eat some popcorn and watch a short movie. This party was fantastic and we're looking forward to more celebrations this weekend. Maybe I'll even wear a costume, who knows?
