Here she is, blowing out candles in her birthday pudding after a Finnish pancake dinner.
And then, a few days later, we had her Angry Bird birthday party. She had a few friends over:
|Waimea and her friend O|
|W and Spencer|
|L and C|
We started out playing Angry Bird Bingo. This actually entertained the kids the best for the longest. It was a hit! Then we played, Save the Birds. We had balloons representing birds filled with candy, and balloons representing pigs not filled with candy. The kids took turns throwing an angry bird at the balloons. Whatever balloon they hit, we popped, and if it had candy in it, then they got to add it to their stash. After the birds were all "saved", we played the "bird, bird, pig" version of "duck, duck, goose." We had an egg hunt, followed by pizza and cupcakes. We were going to have a puppet show with all our stuffed angry birds, but ran out of time. But the kids all seemed to have a blast.
|They all took home a bird, a bag with their candy in it, and they each ate a few cupcakes.|
|A closer look at the cupcakes. I didn't do as good a job this time around as I did with Spencer's. Not that the kids noticed.|
