Isie turned 8 on the 21st. We decided it was kind of a biggie so we let her have a birthday party with friends. She had a Tea Party themed birthday. It's was lots of fun. She got a Kindle for her birthday. She's a little bookworm so she was super excited!
While she was reading, I set up:
We had a craft station where they made derby hats out of paper plates and bowls:
After they got all dressed up in their party favor garb (Isie and I sewed little bags filled with gloves, necklaces, boas, fans, and lipgloss):
They hopped in our home made photo booth:
And struck a pose:
Then they had some tasty treats:
And it was tea time. Or actually, slush-in-tea-cups time:
Emie did some of this:
And Anton did some of this:
And then Emie saw Anton doing that so she did some of this too:
They played some Victorian Parlor Games and then opened presents:
They had a bawl:
Emie was sure it was her birthday too so I guess we killed two birds with one stone:
HaHa! That'd be sweet. But she did tell me it was her "Birfday" and she "needed a new jump rope". We thought we could handle that and it put a big grin on her face:
I can't believe my Mo is 8 years-old! She gets baptized this coming Saturday. We are so proud of the wonderful person she is. We love her very much. Happy Birthday!
