Super Six Celebration

I know, I know! It's been a month and I am now posting about Miss Liz's Birthday. Im a little behind to say the least. But how could I not post about this special day. It was such a great party filled with family and food and fun. Here are some of the things we did.....

We ate Yummy Butterfly Cupcakes
(thanks meli and mom for helping me make the butterflies)
Lizzie decided that she wanted butterflies at her birthday so I came up with this quick kid friendly craft. We bunched up several layers of tissue paper and held it together with clothes pins that they had colored with markers. Then I made colored water and put it in spray bottles to color the wings and voila (is that the right word?) you have butterflies.

We kept nice and cool by splashing in the pool
(hehe that rhymes)

And what's a party without Purple Gobbley Goo? (aka cornstarch and water)
Although some of us (CORA) called it lunch!

It was a very fun day and Lizzie felt very special. I have the best family. Love you guys!!!

this was such a fun day--the butterfly craft was a hit, as well as the pool and goo. I enjoyed making the butterflies for the cake. What will you come up with next birthday?

That party probably ranked number one in kids parties I've been to. Those cupcakes were so good I had two.
