Little House in the Church Activity Center

Well, best laid plans were laid to rest this weekend when we received CONTINUAL rain from mother nature. What had planned to be a party at home and outdoors, quickly turned into a party at the church activity center!! We did not get to have and do some of the things we had planned to do, but fun was had anyway by all. We played games, went to pioneer school, gathered eggs, went shopping, made rag dolls and ate cake, cheese and crackers with apple slices and lemonade. Each girl received a tin pail with a bandana for her to carry her rag doll, penny candy, wildflower seeds, slates and a loaf of homemade sourdough bread that Grandad Willis made. I heard one say, "This is the best goodie bag ever!!" When I asked Laura Beth how she liked her party, she grinned and said, "I loved it." I think that says it all.

What an amazing party! I love all your great ideas. Fabulous! That cake is so cute. It looks like a Holly Hobbie birthday cake my sister had when she was little. Great job on everything! What fun!

We did have a good time and the cake pan is a Holly Hobby cake pan!! She wanted her cake to look like Laura instead of a log cabin. I realized last night that I was going to have the girls make butter and forgot all about it!!!
