Our shining enigma turned six this summer.
To celebrate, we threw a Lego themed birthday party.
Two days before the party, Nora complained of a tummy ache.
No problem! We agreed she would be fine by her party!
When she was still sleeping 30 minutes after the first guests arrived, we realized she was definitely not fine yet.
But the party is strong with that one, so she pulled it together and sat quietly while her friends bopped around and played hard.
We played “Guess how many Legos are in the jar!”
(There were 88. We realized Nora had the right answer because of an eavesdropping sister.)
We made a Lego bean bag toss board — I’ll show you how we made it later this week. It was super easy and it occupied the children for at least 15 minutes.
More than one child was disappointed in the contents of our goodie bags. (Lego eraser, a small notebook and a pack of Lego man shaped crayons.)
I crossed my arms and said smugly, “When I was a child we did not have goodie bags.”
Our friend Melissa made this amazing cake. Before serving, we covered the cake in industrious Lego people that we then removed before serving and are humans weird or what?
James crafted the utensil holder from Legos. He is my favorite.
Little girls picnicked on macaroni and cheese and hot dogs. They spent most of the party sitting on a blanket and talking about presents.
We had lots of Legos laying about for grownups and kids to build together.
Let’s all build together.
Happy birthday my Nora Lea.
