Anna turned six a few weeks back. We had been talking about a Strawberry Shortcake party for months, but at the last minute she changed her mind to Pixie Hollow. I was relieved just because Pixie Hollow seemed like a lot more fun to me.
The party went very smoothly. There were a lot of activities and I had some great helpers so everything just clicked along. The first thing we did was sparkle-up some fairy houses.
Sean got in on the action and turned out a little house fit for a true tinker (it was my favorite).
We made Pixie Dust lip gloss. I bought these little pots at the craft store in the beading section. They hold about one tablespoon of Vaseline that we mixed with a sprinkle of Kool-aid powder and a pinch super-fine glitter.
I love this picture of Anna with her little hand cupping her grandma’s neck. It speaks volumes about their relationship.
The last hands-on station we did was fairy cake decorating with all things purple and green. They turned out some very yummy confections.
Above is one of my yummy confections – isn’t she scrumptious! (I promise she started the party with clothes ON.)
Anna, I hope you had a wonderful day. And I hope you know how much we all adore you. You touch my heart daily with your thoughtfulness and kindness. You are gentle and helpful with your sister in such a way that inspires me to be a better mother, to be more like you. I cannot possibly express how deeply I love you, my little Angel Anna. I hope life is sweet to you this year.
