I’ve come bearing gifts. Or at least .gifs (see what I did there?) Pictures of Kitten’s birthday party! These are only a few, as she was literally surrounded by family the whole day. And I don’t “own” my family, so I try not to post pictures of my family without their permission, etc. so you’ll (sadly) get only a small view of the festivities. But! Pictures! Yay!
Here’s Kitten when we got to the park grounds. She was so excited to wear! the! Tutu! I had let her try it once once before, but otherwise denied her requests to wear it around the house. So it was super special, come party day. She’s also sporting her #3 shirt (made by me), a pair of Abby Cadabby Pony-O hair streamers (bought from etsy) and a pair of Abby Cadabby running shoes (I had a bit of a problem, leading up to the party. Ha ha).
Here’s a picture of us decorating the picnic site. We got stopped by the park police, because they were wondering what was going on, as they don’t usually allow people to set up tables and stuff (we only had one). They let us off the hook though, as it was a kid birthday party (and we obviously were NOT drinking). I loved our balloons and the few decorations that we did have.
We had three games for the kids to play, an egg race (where you race across the grass with an egg in a spoon), a cotton ball race (where you blow through a straw to push a cotton ball across the ground – we used a blanket), and a pinata. Most of the kids had a probelm with the egg race, but it was still fun to do. I dyed the eggs before hand.
We did have a pinata, which was totally fun. It was a pull-string pinata, which totally failed. Kitten’s uncle ended up ripping it open so the kiddies could get the candy. I think that they enjoyed it, even though it didn’t work quite right. You can’t see it, but Birdie had an Abby Cadabby outfit on too. 🙂 We’re all about the matchy-matchy. For those who are curious, I am wearing Birdie in my new Ergo, in Galaxy Grey. She likes it most of the time, but sometimes she just wants to be FREEEEEEEEEEE…
We had cupcakes for cake (for ease of eating outside). I ended up not doing anything fancy or Abby Cadabby themed. I really wanted to do faces, but couldn’t figure out how to do the eyes. Well, I could have ordered candy eyes, but didn’t have time to get them in. Anyway, it’s no matter. They were fine, and gorgeously coloured inside!
Anyway, now Kitten is three, and SOMEONE told her that 3 is apparently much more dramatic than two ever was. ::sigh:: Oh well. Anyway, hope you enjoyed the pictures!
