So Sunday was Hannah's actual birthday and the festivites were to begin at 3:00 and end at 6:00. Hannah wanted grandpa and I to come over early, so that's what we did. We got there around 1:00 after stopping at the dollar store for a gift bag to wrap up the collage blanket we ordered for her. The blanket is a 'story' of sorts with old pictures of mom and dad as they were growing up, right up to their wedding picture and a picture of all 4 grandparents on her 1st birthday :)
Grandma had forgotten the amount of energy and noise that 10 little girls, plus a younger brother and a couple cousins thrown in for good measure, could make LOL! The time did go back quickly though between painting little clay pots, melting chocolate, rolling cake pops in the various colors and letting the kids put sprinkles on the chocolate covered cake pops. We had an assembly line formed and it went very well. Before the girls were leaving to go home we wrapped each clay pot in clear cellophane so they could take it home as a little sovernir :)
Then it was time for pizza, ice cream cake, juice, jello and we can't forget gift opening!!
Oh what a fun afternoon it was. It did feel kind of strange however that grandma didn't work all morning decorating a huge birthday cake for Hannah. On the other hand though it was actually good that I didn't have too as our side streets were VERY bumpy with the packed/slushy snow. Any cake wouldn't have survived the drive over LOL!
Grandma loves you and is still trying to recuperate from the weekend LOL!
