Happy Birthday, Cousin E.

Two thoughts to share from Cousin E’s 4 year celebration this past weekend. 

First, isn’t this the cutest wrapping paper ever?

My little sis made it using sheets from one of those monster size coloring books.  Love this idea. 

Second, if you’re ever stumped for a birthday party activity try letting the kiddos decorate the cake.  I have yet to find an age that doesn’t enjoy expressing themselves with frosting.




The only caveat, of course, is that you must let go of your ideas about beauty.  Kids look at cake decorating from an entirely different perspective. (Namely, how much frosting can we get on here before the grownups make us stop.)
