" Jesus said, ' Let the little children come to me, and do not hinder them, for the kingdom of heaven belongs to such as these.' "
We have 2 birthdays and an anniversary at our house this week. One of the birthdays is for my baby girl. Here is where my husband would say, " She's not a baby!". Well, to me they will always be my "babies"(even the 25 yr old). But, in this case I am talking about my youngest. She will be 3 this week and we celebrated this past Sunday. Just as on Halloween, when she changed her mind a couple of times before we settled on Tigger (see-Costume dilemma), we did not have a Beauty and the Beast party (see-Princess). I had even invited Belle! Fortunately, I hadn't purchased anything or made any deposits yet. Belle understood, and hoped we could work something out next year (whew!).
We had a Dora birthday party this year. When you're 3, Dora is the "bomb"! So, after perusing Pinterest and customizing an invitation on Evite. Dora truly came to life. Here are a couple of pics from the party.
|I found this coloring page on Pinterest.|
I was able to add some personal language to the map on my PC.
We used "Map" to go through the activities.
|I got my color scheme and this goody bag idea from this party on Pinterest as well.|
