This weekend was Stella's 6th birthday party. She had about 18 friends from her Chinese Immersion school at Club Just Jump (filled with giant inflatables-big enough for the parents to go on). They were so cute singing happy birthday. I am on a kick now making molded candies. They are so fun and quick to do. I made stars for her cupcakes because "stella" means "star".
I also whipped together a crown for her out of some random bits of paper scrap from Amy Butler and some sparkly letters. I made one last year with hundreds of poofs of colored tissue paper on a giant cone shaped hat. I will upload a photo some day.
She also had her school carnival, of course facepaint was a must have! I was home with the boys, but dad got to witness Stella dunk her school nutrition lady in the water tank on her first throw. I wish I had seen that. All the kids were chanting "Dunk Sandy. Dunk Sandy" and Stella totally got her. wow!
