This has been a week of birthday celebrations for my little Miss C. Cards arriving in the mail every day, cupcakes and pancakes at playgroup, an ice-cream cake at creche, making Dorothy the Dinosaur cake for her big party, and, of course, the party itself (held yesterday).
C has had a magical week, heavy on sugar and excitement and friends and fun (admittedly, low on downtime and sleep for me, but I can catch up this week :-) I think the visits of friends and family and the making of food were probably her favourite parts; she helped make much of the spread, stirring, cracking eggs, adding ingredients, and decorating away.
Yesterday, at her party, we had a cupcake decorating table for the kids, held an egg and spoon race and played Pass the Parcel (compiled entirely by the big kids, as were the party bags - something that saved me a great deal of time and effort). Despite the 38 degree heat, a good time was had by all, and the birthday girl in particular was happy (which is, after all, the main thing).
