A group of girls joined us last Saturday for what we deemed "fall fun"--a little cookie decorating, bracelet beading, playing, and eating. In lieu of a "treats bag" I sent each girl home with an apron appliqued with some candy corn fabric (in a heart shape), and of course a plate of generously decorated cookies. ;o) You can see a bit of Marissa's apron in the picture:

And the cake, "candy corn inspired"
and inside, surprise!
Josh has class every Saturday, and I was under no delusions that I could pull off such a morning on my own, so my mom graciously agreed to help out. We stayed pretty busy, between party guests and the three little boys. ;o) A third person may have been handy . . .
But we pulled it off! I wish I could say my house has remained in a "company ready" state since that day. Alas, it has not. ;o) But at least FINALLY! I've done a "friend party" for each girl. Not that they've never had birthday parties before, but usually only family has been involved. I'm heading into the next year guilt free. ;o)
