We've been busy celebrating Peter! His 6th birthday was yesterday and it has been a snowy and sugar-filled two days.
Getting treats ready for school on Friday...
Friday night celebration with the Flemings...
It actually snowed Friday night through Saturday morning! Which worked well with our snow-themed party this morning.
We decorated with snow garland (very easy - pom-poms and thread) and paper snowflakes.
We made bird feeders (no photos - will take some soon)
and built snow forts with sugar cubes and snow-dough (white playdough with glitter added).
We played a few games...
Pin the carrot on the snowman. Here's the birthday boy posing for me after all his friends left.
A snowball fight.
And "Cold Snowball" - Hot Potato, but with a snowball.
We had cake and hot chocolate.
And sent our friends home with mugs of hot cocoa and marshmallows. These are dollar store mugs personalized with Folk Art "Enamels" paint, and stuffed with mini marshmallows and hot cocoa.
Tonight, the five of us went out to dinner to complete the celebration.
And this marks the end of birthday season for us! Whew! Until November...
