Do you see Scarlett? (left-side of this photo?)
She's been beaming like that for weeks now in anticipation of her 5th birthday.
Well, the day has finally arrived, and we are living it up.
Previously, we've done an Art Party and a Paper Bag Princess party...but this year, she wanted to have a family birthday party, so we are throwing her an Art Gallery Party. It's a very exclusive showing of her artwork and creations. ;)
Very low-key, but I think she's going to LOVE it.
(If I were feeling more ambitious, I'd probably invite friends and serve hors d'oeuvres...you get the idea. But this is more our speed right now. She has requested McDonald's for dinner and we are getting an ice cream cake to enjoy together at home as a family...surrounded by the imaginations of her creative little mind!)
I have to run now and collect more of her drawings to add to our "collection." Actually, they are kind of rare to find in the house, because she often gives her drawings away to teachers and friends who need cheering up!
That's our girl! We love you, Scarlett! Happy Birthday!
PS - If you are looking for some more inspiration, I've got a post up on the Friend website this week about teaching our children to "stand in holy places" online.
Have a good one!
