Dear Friends,

I will be back soon with celebrations- for now, please know my heart is heavy, and I feel it very inappropriate to post children’s parties and celebrations.  As a mom, a former elementary school teacher, and just a caring person, I am so sad for each of the families and friends.  I am also so proud to know of the lives that were saved by the teachers and administrators.  Please know my thoughts are with the community of Sandy Hook Elementary and Newtown, Connecticut today and each day~

LITTLE HOUSE ON THE PRAIRIE PARTY

What began as a simple gesture to introduce my daughter to a wonderful book series has become a special evening ritual for us- reading Laura Ingalls Wilder’s Little House books!  I must admit, I didn’t realize quite how interesting these books would be to her, but she cannot wait to read all nine in the series.  It was only fitting that her birthday party focus around Little House on the Prairie!  Together, we had a ball planning all of the details of her party that related to the books in some way.  At Camille’s request, we focused on some of her favorite parts of the stories… prairie flowers, covered wagons, tee pees, the colors in the drawings of the books,  and “pretty”…because “Ma” liked things to be pretty!

GO JUMP IN THE LAKE! BIRTHDAY PARTY IDEAS~ CAMPING~ FISHING~ WOODLAND

Go Jump in the Lake!  It takes on a new and really fun meaning when you invite some friends to literally jump in the lake with you- over and over and over!  My kids were given a gift of a water bouncer as a joint birthday present this year from their grandmom, and so that became the theme of my son’s birthday party.  We added things that we see at lake a lot- like fox, fish, bugs, and a skunk (there is one that lives in the woods around the lakehouse that is very cute- we just hope we keep it happy!).  Hopefully, you can find some fun and easy birthday party ideas for a similar theme- such as a camping party, fishing party, or woodland animal theme!
