She decided that what she really wanted was to decorate cupcakes. At first she said cookies, but with a little hint she thought cupcakes were a fine idea.
She didn't want all her friends to come dressing up as a princess, prince or fairy. She wanted them to come in their regular clothes. So to accomodate the messy decorating, Mommy made everyone an apron they could take home. It was really an inexpensive project. We already had the pink duck fabric and we picked up less than half a metre of the car fabric for the boys.
We spent about half-an-hour decorating cupcakes.
Lots of icing. Lots of candy.
Lots of smiles.
Then my older two girls organized games for the kids. Any one need party planners? I might just have two up for hire.
They played musical chairs.
Pin the tail on the bear. As well as bean bag toss, treasure hunt and they spun the bottle for turns while they gave gifts. What a blessing our older girls were today!
She is our little bundle of energy who grabs life by the tail, plays hard and climbs high.
Just today we found her standing on top of the bar stool trying to get something from the closet. Yesterday, she climbed across the washer to get something from the cupboard up above. Seems hard to keep her feet on the floor most times.
Yet, she's the one who often says, with a hug, "Momma, I love you too much!"
Melt my heart, I love you too my little sunshine!
