With snow on the ground already, I thought it was high time I make haste and complete my summer blog posts! This is a fairly concise look at Katia's birthday this past August!
My 8th birthday was county fair, Elodie's 8th was carnival...and Katia's 8th was a dolls' county fair vintage style!
The soundtrack for this birthday was Charlotte's Web:
coconut cream candiess, fruit jelly candies, wee fruit tarts, healthy donuts, nuts, and cake pops! Most everything was healthy. I admit this display incorporates store-bought mini donuts as well as some candies.
Welcome to the Dolls' Fair!
The birthday girl!
Donuts- store-bought as well as healthy, mixed together
little fruity tarts
Cake pops. Do not ask for my recipe. I have no idea how I made them! But they were good! The icing was made of...goodness...cream cheese, cream, coconut oil, arrowroot powder...turmeric...it was the oddest thing I ever made, but it made sense at the time! :)
little cupcakes made with remaining donut batter
Our Mum found these sweet graphics online! We printed them out and used them on favour boxes, as well as a banner above the table.
...Outside was also set up:
games for all
We had a great time in the pool!
Just when you thought we were sane...
I must say, pools make summer way more amazing! I just loved swimming and then drying in the sun while studying/reading! I tried to do that every day all summer. :)
...Of course a county fair means a throw-sponges-at-siblings game! Katia is a great sport.
Sam wore sunglasses- a selfish protection against the elements
oops- the cardboard gave way in the middle of Nikko's turn! haha.
The last rose of summer...
(not exactly true, but a nice thought ;) )
See...that wasn't too long of a post, was it? Now I'm ready for fallish posts! September is next! And more birthday celebrations!
