So, yeah. Bloomer had a birthday. Last month. And then I couldn’t find my camera cord. But then I did!
These are the crowns I made for party favors. They have velcro in the back, since I figure not every child has a melon the size of my kids. Bloomer kept the pink one, of course.
Instead of the grand plan for tarps on the living room carpet for the kids to eat on, I ended up just doing up the table we normally eat at since the number of attendees was so small.
Here she is partaking of some pre-party Princess Graham Snacks, about 8 of them all shoved in her delicate piehole. Notice the pink cake under glass. The plates and napkins are strategically placed over some spots on the tablecloth I didn’t have time to wash before the party started. We also had watermelon, as it was pink. Perhaps I should have had some ham out, too, but that seemed sort of weird.
Once the action got rolling with the cake and whatnot, of course I forgot to take pictures, although we do have some of her opening presents. She got her first Barbie, which came with a mommy dog and 3 puppies. Barbie has been sitting on the fireplace for a month now, and the puppies have been played with mightily and are scattered throughout the house. She also got the Memory game, with the 10,000 cards that you turn over in a grid and try to match them based on memory. Right now, it’s more of an exercise in matching them when they all face up in a pile on the floor, but she’s enjoyed it.
