Saturday we are celebrating Eva's 3rd birthday and the whole day is totally busy...I teach piano all morning, Addie has ballet, and then I'm helping with a primary activity with the kids at church. At 4 about 20 family members are coming to join us in celebration.
And Eva has laid claim on every element of this party. In fact she has requested that she not have a party at all just a cake "ALL BY MYSELF!"
so this has been our preparation day
assemble 8 treat bags for the kids
result: find Eva clearing out the treat bags about 2 hours later eating all the chocolate out of them, surrounded by trash and wrappers.
bake a birthday cake
found her and her cousin Lilia had dug out large chunks of the cake. I wondered why they were so quiet..ACK!
blow up balloons
she sat and popped balloons until I had to hang them really high from the ceiling and got into a screaming fight with Lilia because they both wanted the pink balloon.
found the birthday candles
she ate two of them.
SO in an effort to just end the day right we went outside to build a snowman.........
this snow is not snowman snow! it's way too fluffy and deep. So instead we watched the stars come out and swung in the dark on the swings in snow suits. I kept warning them if I fell down in the snow I probably would never ever get up again.
and I told mom I'll probably need another cake mix tomorrow........if she feels so inclined to deliver one to me...THANKYOU!
