Liv's Birthday Party - A Photo Tour

Today, Livie had a birthday with some of her Kindergarten friends. We had it at The Dreaming Bear's art studio, because that was a much more appealing location for a February birthday, than the other "usual" choices (like that loud pizza place - you parents know where I mean).

So she and her friends arrived at 1:00PM. Here's a photo tour of what happened at party time.
Livie's excited and ready to head to the Dreaming Bear!

Ms. Em is giving the girls a bit of instruction before they begin doing their art project.

They've just started decorating their art projects - they're all painting cupcakes.

All the girls are having fun doing artwork!

"There is art that decorates and art that liberates. If you really need art that matches your sofa, might I suggest hanging an identical sofa above your existing sofa."

"Good art is often too broad to fit through narrow minds."

A very well-dressed tall friend "supervises" artists from high above.

Some of the finished pieces of art.

More finished pieces of art.

Now, the edible princess cupcakes!

Yummy!! Cupcakes, and thirst-quenching water.
All in all, it was a very successful party! All the girls were so excited to have been able to do art at a birthday party! However, I am wiped out after being in charge of 8 kindergarten girls! (I don't know how their kindergarten teacher does it with twenty-two!!) The owner of the studio laughingly said I should go home and celebrate with a glass of wine (for myself, of course, and not Livie!).

It was a lot of fun for the girls, and for that, I am glad. I'm glad we have this option - something creative and fun, here in town, not just for parties, but for a regular ol' Saturday when we need something smart and fun to do. (Livie is counting down the days 'til she and I can head back to the Dreaming Bear to do more art during their "Open Art Studio" a different day.)

Oh, and this is just the beginning of "Birthday Week" for Livie. On Friday, she's taking frosted sugar cookies for her Kindergarten class, for snack, in honor of her birthday. And on Saturday, she's celebrating with her grandparents.
