A's "creative" birthday party

A sweet bunch of little friends all came over today to help A celebrate turning 5!
A's creative 5th birthday

We made ornaments with the above picture glued inside, the girls really took it seriously and did a lovely job!
We also made a beautiful mess - call me crazy but I just love the mess that comes with serious creativity. For the next month I will smile every time I sweep up gitter off the floor.

Daddy was in charge of the games - simon says, duck duck goose, pop up balloon.

Duck.. duck...

The highlight for sure was the make your own cupcake part of the afternoon - or rather "eat an entire baggie of icing with all the candy you want on the top"

I can't believe she is 5....

What a wonderful way to start a new year.
