MA turns 6!

Saturday before last, 7 January, was MA's 6th birthday. This year, her birthday fell on a Saturday, which was an available day, so we actually had the party that day. Unfortunately for her, MS's birthday was the next day and his party the next week, so that, on top of the hecticness of life in general, meant that her pictures did not get posted in a timely manner.

But we did celebrate MA, even more than we do daily. She definitely adds more than just a touch of the feminine to our family and is growing to be quite a helper to me, especially in the kitchen, which she loves.

Her cake was Fetch with Ruff Ruffman inspired, as it is one of the kids' very favorite shows right now.

Excepting brothers, it was an all-girl party, just like MA.

There were, of course, presents, including a bead set from which she has made several bracelets and necklaces already.

And then the girls invented their very own party game: Hoppy Poppy Dance Floor, which consisted of laying bubble wrap on the floor, and dancing on top of it. They had quite a wonderful time, and it required no preparation/thought on my part, which is a good thing, because I do not do well with party games.

A good time was had by all, and we enjoyed celebrating our precious MA.

Ooooh!! Love her tights!!
I'm glad she was celebrated and enjoyed it (how can one not enjoy being celebrated at age 6?)!

We love Ruff!

I also love her tights. Now MA can help me re-sting a necklace next month as she will be a pro at necklace making. I can't wait to see you next month.

GfG, aren't the tights great? Can't remember if I got them here or in Germany, but we've gotten some good wear out of them.

Mrs. W, the cake was, indeed, tasty. It turns out very moist, which is, to me, essential in a cake, since I'm not that fond of cake, in general.

K, I will tell MA that she has a job awaiting her in Austin. Come to think of it, I have some bracelets that need restringing myself...
