Lillian’s party was a huge hit on Saturday. We ended up with a total of 8 kids between the ages of 9 months and 4 with Lillian being the oldest, and it was a blast. My mathie friends and I noted that we beat our degrees / person average from June where we had 11 degrees over 9 people (of which 4 were under the age of 4). Here we had 14 degrees over 11 people with 5 aged 4 or less. Crazy how many really smart friends we have but I guess that’s unavoidable when you work with professors. So the activity was the pumpkin decorating and the kids LOVED it. They all got to decorate and take home a pie pumpkin, and the kids took turns and all their pumpkins looked great, even if the giant pompoms everyone wanted for noses would not stay on no matter how much glue we used! But it kept them happy and entertained for a bit. They even played nicely together. Sure it looks like chaos, but to keep 9 kids happy is a real achievement! See for yourself! Yes there are only 7 kids captured in this shot but not one of them is crying! SUCCESS!
