The Perfect Amount of Silliness

There was much silliness in my house today.
Yesterday afternoon we decided to have Meghan's birthday party today. All six of the girls she invited could make it, even with such late notice, and she was elated. We had very little time to prepare so we thought it might be a great idea to have the girls bake their own cupcakes and decorate them as part of the festivities. What a load off of me and what fun for them! They had a grand time and for a couple of them it was their first time baking. Really? Are there people out there who can live a few days in a row without eating baked goods? (I'm raising my kids to bake, simply so they can serve me my tea and some goodies in my old age :) We even kept it easy for them by using cake mix from a box.

I love these girls. Two of them are Meg's real cousins and two just call me "Auntie Heather" because I've been in their lives since before they were born :) The other two are special friends of Meg's from dance, which means she has seen them a couple times a week... for years. Can you imagine the amount of giggling and noisy silliness that was going on at my house? Just the perfect amount.

This proves my theory: Last minute adventures are often the best memories!!
I love that you introduced baking to some girlies. It will be just the beginning. Baking is just so...yummy!! Great way to spend time with those you love.

So. Fun. Happy Birthday, Meg! Hope my kids are as happy and composed and real as you are when they're your age.
