>Yesterday we had Sierra’s birthday party. This was the first (and probably last) birthday party she has had that didn’t have mostly family in attendance. She had three friends from school and five from church/bible study. I’m amazed (or maybe I’m not) by the differences in these two groups of friends. The girls from school were good, not outright disobedient or rude, but they were LOUD and a little crazy. The girls from church/bible study were a lot quieter and more calm. We had 20 minutes after we were done with everything for the girls to play. The school girls went into Sierra’s room and were loud and crazy (they were under the covers of her bed, moved the actual mattress out about six inches, pulled her blinds all the way down), and the church friends sat at the kitchen table and colored and stamped pictures. I now know where the crazy/loud side of Sierra is coming from. It kind of makes me glad I’m homeschooling next year. Anyway. I digress. Back to the party.
Here is the cake I made for Sierra. The candy canes are really just there to cover up the crappy frosting job!Sierra showing me my due adoration when I brought her cake. Or…this might be an embarrased smile.This is what an Overwhelmed Party Girl looks like blowing out her candles. She told me it was “too wild” when I asked her what was wrong.My friend Kim was taking pictures, and she made Sierra smile so there would be at least one good picture of her.
