WE DID IT!!! Here we are our last day and look at all we have learned. Well, I did anyway. :)
I'm going to cheat a little today and I'm calling this post - TRUE SIMPLICITY!
The reason is because today I saw the example of "true simplicity" Where would that be?? In the actions and joy of children.
Today we celebrated my oldest granddaughter 6th birthday. As usual, her Mommy did an amazing job at creating a beautiful atmosphere for Kaitlyn. the theme was "a lady bug party" and everything was ladybug and gardening. I am going to put a few brag pictures up for you to see but I first want to explain the simplicity part.
First thing was the beautiful simplicity which my daughter put together the decorations for the party. Of course, keep in mind she is very creative and good at putting all kinds of handmade things together. But it was simple but in it's simplicity it was all amazing and beautiful - better than anything you could ever buy at a store.
She made little lady bug purses for each of the girls - and you would have thought the little girls had been given a million dollars when they got the little ladybug purses. (again simplicity) They were so excited. She made a ladybug cake that looked as good as anything you would buy at Publix and tasted better. Then for the grand finale - she purchased online 1500 ladybugs for only $8 and at the end of the party we took them outside and put them on all the plants.
So my point is you can make a kids party or really any event wonderful with very simple things and little money, although you do need alot of creativity. :) My other point is that children are very happy with the simple things in life and need much less material stuff to make them happy and excited than sometimes we think.
It was a great day and I just want to send a shout out to my daughter Debbie, for all her hard work and creativity that gave her daughter a party she will never forget. Now, she needs to start figuring out what to do before October, which is Anna's (her littlest) birthday. :)
