Little Miss C finally turned six!
She is the youngest and smallest in her class so it was important to her to finally be six. The best part about turning six is that you can take "Mom and Me" classes and perhaps learn to shade with your copics!!! Yes!!!
She had her classmates to her house yesterday for a veterinary party. Everyone brought their favourite stuffed animal. There were stations for X Rays, shots, checkups, kennels, feeding stations etc. and they all got a completed health certificate to take home.
Six beautiful birds (lovebirds, parrots etc) arrived with 3 handlers from the bird sanctuary. The children all got to hold and pet the birds. The party was a hit with 2 Mom's taking brochures home to plan sanctuary parties as well.
Today they are off to the pumpkin patch just down the street from us. Usually we go together every year. There are always a few animals to pet and a big covered wagon with seats made from hay bales takes you down into the pumpkin fields. This year they even have some draft horses to pull the wagon. The grandkids will just love that! The waiting area is set up as a store with fabulous pumpkins, gourds, corn stalks, squash and other root vegetables for sale. This year we are staying home as it is just a bit to unsteady for me this year.
After the pumpkin patch, they are all coming here for cake and course we have a gift.
Now I know that looks like a pretty small bag...In fact, I was a little worried if I could fit her gift inside! You see, there are 2 gifts. One she is going to like and one she is going to love...I will leave it to you to decide which is which.
Here's the one I was worried wouldn't fit into the gift bag. It is a little sleeveless dress that ties at the back into a big soft bow. The little velvet shrug jacket is needed of course, for the cold weather here at Christmas.
I always get a Christmas party dress for her birthday. Between both her parents work parties, plus family and friends Christmas parties, a girl can just never have too many party dresses!
Because the card was a wee bit thick, I chose to seal the envelope with a sticker...
