Here is how we set up for the party Saturday night. I have to admit that I called in my dear friend Laura to help me figure it all out. This girl not only de-clutters, she decorates! LOVE HER! She said as she left Friday to give her a call if I needed help, and I took her up on it. I'm such a visual person, and if I don't "see" how something should be, I get a little lost.
The girls had fuzzy boas and a string of pearls for their
tea party fun. Our two boys went Indiana Jones-style.
Hey! I would let him to my tea party any time!
Of course we had to have food! I'll share the recipe for the
colorful crunchy dish on the left very soon!
And there were games. The object to this game was to pass the Hula-hoop down the line
without using any hands. Well..... at least trying not to use any hands!
Next the kids were put in to two groups with the same kind of props.
They had to create a story based on all their "things." We had some
very talented story tellers!
My niece and nephew-in-law, Amanda and Arik, just increased the special
place we have for them in our hearts by coming to help celebrate the day AND
be my assistants whenever I called. LOVE YOU GUYS!
The Birthday girl herself!
Little Bear with her Godmother and my very special cousin, Nancy!
After the eats, we played a little game of charades. Note to parents, the
prompt of "sitting on a rocking chair" is hilarious! (very much bathroom humor!)
The little craft everyone made. Just picked up the pictures from
good ol' Wal-Mart today, trimmed them up, and put them in for
Hannah to pass out with Thank You notes on Wednesday.!
This is Hannah's masterpiece after playing with the colorizing
tool on my Memory Manager 3! Creative Memories, You ROCK!
In two more weeks, we get to do it all over again for Tink! Hmmmm.....Think I will borrow from Miss Scarlet and "think about it tomorrow!"
