My baby turns 10 today. Where does the time go? Happy Birthday, Abigail!
We celebrated with a party on Saturday for both girls. We've never done that before, as we've always kept their birthdays separate, even though they are just 5 days apart. A party for two girls? That meant we had 17 guests ranging in age from 6 to 18. And they were all perfect little ladies!
Turns out, I've been under the weather so cupcakes were iced while the guests were playing games. Lunch was kept very simple: grilled hotdogs, veggies and dip, chips, lemonade, and cupcakes.
Party favors were simple too. And oh, so cute! The girls and I crocheted 24 flowers and turned them into pins for the guests. You can find the post with directions for crocheting these flowers here.
Later that evening we had two different families for supper and games. The girls got the house in top shape after the party with the help of one of their friends. Floors were scrubbed on hands and knees, bathrooms freshened, etc. I concentrated on making supper while they did the heavy labor. You'd have thought it was my birthday!
