this week Avery attended her first ever birthday party. ( a fact she disputes with much enthusiasm, as she actually has attended her sister's parties.) she was so excited. her friend Amber dropped off the cutest invitation for a Tangled themed party, a tower with a blond yarn braid hanging down. Avery carried it around saying, "not for you Anna, not for you Maddie, just me!" she carefully chose a selection of goodies for a present, and delighted in helping me wrap them.
she surprised me by being a little timid once we got there. i think she assumed she and Amber would be the only girls there. but it was a pretty big group. (Amber's mom is a very ambitious lady.) i sat with her to do a few crafts, hair bows, a pet chameleon, a necklace, a lantern, it was a lot of fun. then, she was ready for me to go. by the time i came to get her, of course she did not want to leave! what a fun party!!!
