Saturday we had a birthday party for Drew, she is turning 5 on June 1st. She chose a butterfly theme, and thank the lord, the $ tree came thru for me on this one. We made a beautiful butterfly cake with lots of sprinkles, and made butterfly neclaces out of clothes pins, yarn, tissue paper, googly eyes, and pipe cleaners. We hunted for "butterflies" with our butterfly nets, while wearing butterfly wings. It was a blast! I could see in her face she was having so much fun. She is just growing so fast. She is such a beautiful girl. She has transformed right before my eyes, just like a butterfly! Everyone feasted on hamburgers, hotdogs, and watermelon/cherry koolaid! This in the one time when I break down and make that nasty stuff. The kids gobble it down. I bought bright colored icecream, which turned out to be 'Superman' icecream, it was yellow, blue, and red. It was also horrible. I will stick to rainbow sherbert from now on.
She made out on the bucks, I think a total of 47.00. Most all to put toward a wonderful bank account my Mom and Dad created for each of the kids. She made out on the toys too. A cali horse, fairytopia butterfly, 'pirate bratz', bratz scooter, dora candyland, the cranium balloon lagoon game, the little mermaid color book and sparkly colored pencils, a butterfly sleeping back/back pack, baby bratz twins, lipgloss, goggles, candy, etc. She loves all of it. And today, with 5.00 of her birthday money, she plans to buy a cali Ken, and cali Barbie doll to ride the cali horse, ofcourse. She was able to have a cousin which she hasn't seen in some time, stay the weekend for her party, and they have had alot of fun together. 1 party down, 2 to go!
