Sweet Katie turned 7 this week. Here is what she really wanted: a huge bear. Daddy was gone on her actual birthday so we celebrated early with him.
Kaite wanted to have a birthday party and invite all her friends from our neighborhood. The day before the party, we went to 3 households to invite the girls to come. We made a cake and other treats and got the room ready. We got mats and pillows ready for sitting, laid the tablecloth, and filled it with goodies. These mats are new, a neighbor made them for me. The sellers at the market helped me to pick out the best fabric.
We are ready.
These two are quite a pair.
We had lots of little guests! My plan was to play games inside with eating treats before and cake and more treats after. The games didn't go exactly as planned (though they did enjoy "Hot Potato") but the main thing was that everyone seemed to have a great time. Chaos was everywhere and Lissie, Anna, Michael and I were on the alert for the kids we know are the most naughty.
I layered two 9 x 13 cakes and did manage to serve cake to 23 with a little extra to spare.
The food was devoured and all the bottles emptied.
This lovely girl brought her little sister to the party. Will was very popular though I think he and the kittens were glad to see all the guests go home :-)
