We threw a little party for Bug last night, complete with ice cream cake…and a tiara and boa!
The boa was quickly deemed “too scratchy” so it got the back burner. The tiara (actually there were 2, thanks to Corrie not being able to choose between them) was a very big hit! Our theme for gifts were books which we loved when we were children. Books that are in it for the long haul. I know Bug will be a “reader” someday, it is easy to see, so I thought these would be the most appropriate and well loved gifts for a kid going into kindergarten. Furthermore, she already has more than enough toys.
Just a snippet of the fine books chosen for her! This comes as no surprise because if there is one thing that my friends and I share besides knitting, it is our love for reading! A love for books which goes back to Bug’s age and sustained us long term.
The cake, which Bug didn’t feel she had much time for, was deemed more than delish by us adults.
Soon Bug decided she’d like to practice her photography skills, and make each one of us a princess in the process.
Carrie as a princess:
Kristen as a princess: (probably the most regal looking of us all)
Kathy as a princess:
Corrie as a princess: (and ultimately we have HER to thank for these lovely pictures!)
Sarah as the “come hither princess”:
Me, looking a bit more like a queen as I was at the time admonishing Bug to keep her fingers out of the way of the camera lens. Which obviously was NOT the problem I thought it was:
And the absolute highlight of the night for us gals, Grant as a princess:
OK ok, Grant might win in the regal looking department, he just needs that boa!
Thanks guys! I had a really great time, and obviously Bug did too! I am really excited to dig into some childrens books which I haven’t even read, and I am sure Nana will get good use out of them too when she comes for a visit. When Bug and I got home last night, the first thing she did was lovingly set all her books up on her bookshelf in a place of honor.
