Ami thanks everyone for the gifts she has recieved so far: from Finley a Littlest Pet Shop game, from the Fauths: a violet long maned pony head with brushes and curling irons and barettes, and a book about flying horses, she also got a certificate for "being a great friend" :o) ; from Julie's family: art supplies; from Grandma Alice: 4 new books and a $6 check :o); from Nana: 3 unicorn books; from Oma and Opa: a pizza game and phonics books; from Grammy and Grandpa Bill, a pink razor kick scooter, and from mom/dad/noah&eden: a playmobil unicorn fantasyland set. She insisted on a horse cake, and really wanted to play "pin the tail on the horse" but we forgot all about that when everyone showed up cause all the kids were just having such a fun time playing. Amelie and her new friend, Finley.
Amelie's birthday is on the 25th, Monday, but we had a party for her on Saturday, the 23rd. Our great friends, Miriam, Michael, Elana, Layah, Jacob and Ruthie came. Our neighbors, Julie and her two children Clarissa and Josh, and one of thier friends came, as well as some new friends we met through the homeschool group: Faith, and her daughters Finley (6) and Darria (12), and Darria's friend Morgan. We had a full house! Blowing out the candles It was a lot of fun. I think everyone had a great time. The kids played in Ami's room, and all over the house, and after some creative indoor activities, and cake, and gift-opening, everyone ended up outside in the chilly damp air (it had rained a bit and the ground was very wet), Chris gave everyone swing rides on the rope swing pushing them really really high--and everyone came in absolutely soaked and muddy. Opening her gifts with Noah, Elana, Jacob, Ruthie and Layah
