Arizona Birthday Party

I arrived with nothing for the birthday girl except two ART projects for her party. I took my little bag of tricks to the bedroom and made her a birthday card.

Our first project was Castle Towers which is fun for all ages.
After Mug Cakes, we colored Tree Spirit Flags. This project was a collaboration as I had already drawn the spirits.


This was Linnea's (on right) Golden Birthday.

Aubrey's Golden Birthday is January 12, 2011. EXPECT


The short version of what happened to me after returning from AZ is the first couple of days, I was lazy. And then when I was ready to post pictures from home discovered problems with home computer. It is working but will not let me open photo card.

All is good here.

Expect tomorrow,



  1. I'm sure that will be a birthday that will be remembered for years to everyone who was there! What fun!! Don't you just love red rosin paper?!!

  2. Just so Y'all know --- we have the BEST aunt in the whole world.
