finally a little post about Mia Rosies' Birthday party. Let me first start and tell you just how excited she was. She had a hard time sleeping for at least a week leading up to her birthday, and the night before her party was no different. She woke up, and was ready to party!
The cake she selected was an ice cream cake - http://galactopdx.blogspot.com/2012/02/ice-cream-cake.html - which everybody loved.
We started out by serving cake
Here she is wearing all smiles and ready to blow out her candle...By the way, the choice of color for the table cloth and cups was all hers. I do however admit, that I also like pink as well as purple - you know, just in case you were wondering :)
After the cake we played a round of "Topfschlagen" - literally translated "hit the pot" which is also the game. Here is a picture of Alena playing
Next we painted small terra-cotta pots...
We followed up with a round of "Musical Chairs", a little free play, and opening presents....It turned out fun and everyone was tired at the end...
