Thursday, October 02, 2008's a pirate party!

Last Sunday Mackenzie had her 3rd birthday party. Her birthday was the week before but since they had just moved into their new house the day before, the party was postponed a week. Mackenzie has become a great fan of the Backyardigans. Instead of saying Backyardigans she calls them Backyard Friends.

The theme of her party was Backyardigans and pirates! The night before her party Brittainy drew this on a piece of foam board with some Sharpies she had. She said that because she was using Sharpies there was no room for errors since she drew it as she went along. I don't know about you but I can barely draw a stick figure!!! I remember when Britt was 3 years years old and started preschool the teachers told me how concerned they were because she couldn't draw a person. (She turned three three weeks before school started.) If only her preschool teacher could see her now!

She also made this pirate cake for Mackenzie. There are some Backyardigans on a boat headed towards the treasure chest of gold!

I am very proud of Brittainy's talents!!!

take care,

Dawn, I think you underestimate your own talent, but I agree Brittainy is talented. Her art, free hand, is awesome. The cake adorable. I know MacKenzie had a wonderful birthday with lots of love around her. That is the way it should be. Smile.
