Birthday Kitschen: Ice Cream, Pizza and Flashing Lights

My little girl is turning 7 tomorrow and we had an advanced party for her yesterday. Thank you to everyone who came through. It was an awesome party and I think everyone young and old had fun!

Pre-party...The two besties wanted to eat the cake already before the guests even came!

Taste of my childhood. Hotdog on a stick- with marshmallows!Every pinoy kiddie party has to have it!

Figured kids wouldn't eat whole, regular sized burgers so prepared some mini-versions using dinner rolls as buns!

Who doesn't love French Fries? Especially when tossed in truffle oil and parmesan :)

No sweet spaghetti in Casa Paredes. I prefer this baked spaghetti from my childhood. It's my favorite and I ask our cook to make this every time I return home from a long trip!

Pizza making contest! The winning pizza was seemingly ordinary, with pepperoni, pizza sauce and cheese, but made special by the addition of...Peanut Butter!!!

Build your own sundae station. Vanilla, Strawberry and Chocolate ice cream, 8 toppings, 2 kinds of sauces. I forgot to bring out the whipped cream! Sayang!

The kids doing a photo shoot with wigs and hats and stuff. So hard to get them all to keep still, so instead of doing that, we just chased their movements instead.

We got jealous and wanted a turn!

Happy Birthday babycakes! I hope you know how much we all love you!
