The birthday table as they got ready to sing Happy Birthday.
Looks like they're having fun.
Our Birthday Girl.
Bombarded with presents!
For Lydia's sixth birthday she had her first "friend's party" a few weeks after her actual birthday. Most of her kindergarten classmates were able to make it. She also invited her brothers despite my efforts to send them off for the day. We made paper airplanes to throw, made an airplane project to take home, decorated t-shirt for the kids to keep, had pretzel dogs for a snack, and then they all decorated their own cupcakes before we sang happy birthday. In the eyes of a six year old it was a smashing success.
