At last year's St. Patrick's Day
Grandchildren Party, Caleb asked
if next year we could invite his
neighbors and friends,
Luke and Sophia.
|What a sweet idea from a sweet boy.|
So this year we expanded our party
a little. I hope you enjoy the
|For a party to be a success, |
you must have balloons,
and if you think the balloons stayed
in this pretty bucket, you
don't know children.
|The slips of paper were used to play|
the Treasure Hunt Game.
|Here comes the food!|
All of it nutritious and delicious.
Well, at least delicious.
Skittles for the colors of the rainbow.
|Grandma's Green Sugar Cookies.|
|Mint oreos--a much bigger hit than|
my homemade cookies.
|Grapes--one of two nutritious items.|
The other was Kiwi, but alas,
|Green Twizzlers--who knew???|
|Lucky Charms--Get it???|
|Each child decorated a sack to take|
their goodies home in.
Imagine having a girl's name
at one of our parties. Next year,
we will have a girl in our very
Hurry baby sister--we're waiting for you!
|The Fruit Loops Necklaces were a big|
hit--or should I say eating the Fruit Loops
for the necklaces was a big hit.
|We made Leprechaun hats from|
styrofoam cups. Unfortunately, I
forgot to take a picture of the finished
product. You put them in a 250
degree oven, and MAGICALLY,
they shrink and become hats.
|This is our fun group--|
Caleb, David, Sophia, Aaron, Annabelle,
Luke and Nana.
It was cute! I asked our visitor
children if they would like to
call me Nana or Ms. Karen.
Nana was the unanimous choice.
|I wonder what we|
were all looking at (except Aaron).
Look closely at my arm in
this picture. I will explain later.
|A real artist.|
|Luke and Annabelle|
|Aaron with the rainbow necklace.|
Not part of the party decor, but found
in the costume chest.
|David loves stickers.|
|The absolute ONLY time I got the|
whole group still and quiet was
when I was reading them a book.
|I have to wear a compression sleeve|
to combat a side effect from my
surgery 2 years ago.
Caleb and Aaron found
the "Shamrock Tatoo Sleeve"
for me and gave it to me
as a love present to wear
to our party.
|The gang with their|
St. Patrick's Day crowns.
|This should have gone with the food--|
Rainbow Ice in Sprite.
A BIG hit!
|YES! We had a grand time! |
HAPPY ST. PATRICK'S DAY!!!
