miss 12 observes her birthday each year whilst we are camping
because we have always camped in a big group, we've thrown a birthday party camping styles and she's had a pretty good time!
she does however, miss having her CURRENT CLASSMATES at her birthday party
this happened to miss 20 when we lived in the states (her birthday is in august)
any child in north american who has a birthday from mid-june until august will understand!
this year we were camping on our own, so there was no birthday party
we even made her wait until lunchtime to open her presents
(we had taken shelter in a nearby restaurant from the RAIN!)
...so i decided to throw her a birthday party
we finally settled on the 2nd weekend in march
here be the cake - a whole tray of cupcakes-cake if you will...
arty shot of said cake/cupcakes
(taken with my portrait lens - of course!)
and the maker/designer/person of said cupcakes/cake
don't you just love a reaction to a birthday persent like this?
i should get so excited over erasers...
do you have SMIGGLE where you live? it's all the rage here
i do a pass the parcel with a diference
in each layer there's a mini chocolate bar with a question about the birthday girl attached
if you don't know the answer, someone else will, and it's a great way to get to know her better
everyone loves a happy birthday!
after everyone arrived and we did presents and pass the parcel, we drove 10 mins to play a couple of games of laser tag.
we were gone from the house no more than an hour so
i ENCOURAGED the girls to leave their cell phones behind
i only had to talk one girl down off the wall
when we got home, she had 55 text messages on her phone
FIFTY. FIVE. MESSAGES
i asked "are they all from the same person wondering why you didn't text back?"
no she replied, looking like i'd just asked the dummest question EVA!
her phone is like a 2nd skin. NOT healthy.
ready for action!
blowing out the candles
happy birthday to my cupcake queen
