"I'm almost big enough to drive the car!"

Whoa there Pony Girl, not quite.

First, Pony Girl and I would like to thank you all for your sweet comments and birthday wishes. Thank you!

Well, as you may know, plans are just plans and things can change in the blink of an eye. Still, if you can just roll with it, it all turns out ok in the end. Better than ok some times. The party was a success and of course being mama, I was too busy doing to get the photos I would have liked to but, that's ok too.

Yes, there was a pinata! I modified a pony pinata with some rainbow glitter Pegasus wings and it wasn't long before the wholesale slaughter and whacking commenced. Very medieval, barbaric even... but still, loads of fun!



The birthday girl had a blast. I can't believe how grown up she's getting. Many thanks to our dear friends for opening up their beautiful home to host the party. All in all, things worked out just lovely!


On Monday I will share the birthday dress (which became a different dress completely), also for next week, I will share some thoughts on reaching the half way point of "A Challenge of the Utmost Kind".

Have a lovely weekend!

Thanks so much for sharing your photos - I have been thinking about the Rainbow pegasus party! Well, she will be able to drive the car sooner than she would if she lived in the UK...

I love your comment on my blog about the tree planting idea. So productive and community-spirited. I'd love to see a pic of your trees!

Pony girl is adorable! Love the glasses~ I remember when my children were small, I often had little vases of dandelions. The grandchildren keep my little vases full now..*S*
Glad the party was a success! Can't wait to see the dress~
Have a wonderful weekend!

The thing I always remember most about kid parties (and because everything is a blur) is after the last kid has gone and I do a very large collapse with a gallon pot of tea. Well done, Mum.
