"Artsy" Birthday . . .
We celebrated 11 years of Dreamer's life this week. She is our artist in residence, so of course the whole of the celebrations were art related. It was her year for a friend party and she knew right away what she wanted to do; sand art.
I looked for pre-done kits, but could not find exactly what she wanted, so we mixed a few kits from the dollar store, extra sand and glass bottles with corks from the local crafting store. It was interesting to see all the different patterns and techniques used by each of the kids. Her friends kept to her passion by giving her art supplies as gifts.
She requested German pancakes with strawberries and cream for breakfast. We had a great family dinner and party for her also and she was pretty excited about her gifts, especially art lessons once a week from her very talented Grandma.
Pizza, games, gifts, cone cakes . . . it was a great day! The whole day was ended with the traditional pinata.
