the great indoors

Print Our five year old LIVES for holidays. She often asks if we can join all religions so that we can share their celebrations. Her birthday is the be-all end-all of yearly parties. I dropped the ball BIG time last year and had a small gathering of friends with very little hoopla. So this year we had to make up lost ground. She chose a camping party, which can be difficult in the middle of November. The Great Indoors was the theme. Our fireplace became the campfire to roast s'mores. We made a teepee out of a drop cloth. Michael's had animal masks to decorate. And bead necklaces were a favorite craft. The favors were firefly jars ... mason jars with small dots of glow-in-the-dark paint.

After all the guests left, M said "Mom, what do we do now that my birthday is over?". Start planning for next year. I should actually start planning her wedding. Visit here to see my prep board for the birthday.
