prairie daze

claiming our daze and our days on the prairie

…here they come

the “small party” seemed bigger when they all arrived
and bigger yet after sugar…but it was fun
refreshment ready, fire started, go!

micah is fascinated by native americans,
so i thought feathers in the cupcakes would be pleasant to him

as i put the first feather in, words came flooding back:
don’t touch that feather, you’ll get sick!
ooooooooo, wash your hands or you’ll get the bird flu
so i thought that eating a cupcake
with a feather in it for hours
might not be good…i stuck them in pieces of straws first

the north wind wasn’t too cold

and there were friends to help with cake smashing

present opening was a blur of paper and thank yous

fire to roast more green tomatoes..some kids hardly left the dancing gold

daddy’s work snake came for a visit

next was a treasure hunt on the driveway
and after the pumpkin smashing flopped,
i scurried around the house to find all the spare change i could
and threw that on the driveway
pennies are HARD to find on a stone drive

oh, but we know the greatest treasure of all:
this dear child who we remember through the years

    Wow, seeing that frosting face and the baby-dirt face picture – I guess the more things change, the more they stay the same. Happy sixth birthday to you and your beautiful boy!
