Sam celebrated his 1st communion in May.
Tuesday, April 22, 2014
Brianna's party started with a spend the night. Two girls spent the night and they had a great time. Then when the party started the next day, the first thing they did was decorate jars. This was Molly's stain glass jars activity from Molly's Activity Book. We decorated with tissue paper, added a candle, and then put an American Girl sticker on the jar.
We made a pinata which was quite the challenge. Brianna requested flower shaped. So we made a balloon pinata, then lots of smaller balloon pinatas, and then attempted to paper mache them all together while the whole thing was still wet. I know from experience that if you wait until it is dry and re-wet it, the balloon has shrunk and the whole thing looks like a shriveled mess. So anyway, she carefully decorated the pinata with American Girl stickers and even wanted to match the colors of tissue paper to the girls. It was Josefina's pinata so she was in the middle. Molly was red, white, and blue. Julie was on ivy tissue paper which is her friends name in the books, etc.
