Turning 8

The official turning 8 party for Elizabeth commenced on Saturday, and the above poster, which was hanging all over our living room, sums it up nicely.  Activity number 1 was dyeing the silk dancing scarves, which each partygoer did as soon as they arrived so that the dye could set, and I could wash and dry them, with time to use them at the end.

While the scarves were setting, washing, and drying, a few games of American Art Bingo and some cake passed the time.  In lieu of a traditional birthday cake, Elizabeth chose Angel Food Cake (from Whole Foods, she was very specific) garnished with a dob of fresh whipped cream.

Then the partygoers got their groove on to some Celtic music, scarves flying, and Elizabeth in her new birthday skirt.

And some became bandits.

In all, a pretty fun way to turn 8.


  1. Oh, fun. THe scarves look great.

    Happy Birthday!

  2. Oooh...I like that girls style! ;) Sounds like a great party.


I love to hear what you think!
