Boo finally had her b-day party with friends (almost a month after her real b-day)! It was a "really fun celebration" (quote by the b-day girl herself). How did we spend our fairyland time?
Decorated the house like fairyland.
Treasure hunt of Fairy and elves' favorite things: feathers, flowers, magic pebbles, shells to earn our wings.
Decorated our cookie wands.
Danced a fairy dance to the Nutcraker.
Played Fairy Freeze game.
Played Musical Flowers.
Read Peter Pan.
Ate fruit wands, star pizzas, and drank fairy punch (raspberry lemonade with edible flowers), and fairy cake.
Exited into a sea of bubbles (leaving a little bit of chaos).
Boo was so cute. When she was going to sleep that evening I told her I was proud of her for playing so nicely (with 11 guests) and not crying or getting upset. She said, "Yeah, nobody cried or was mean!" A party to be remembered. My favorite quote of Boo's was when she was talking to her friend Ben who was one of the first to arrive and said, "You need to be nice to my friend Benjamin who is coming, because he's my best friend." So funny. He is still considered her best friend even though she sees him maybe once a month.
Now the question is: Do I do the idea where you only have parties for your kids every four years (the big ones--8, 12, 16)? We'll see. We had a lot of fun. I might miss it!
