Six Years Old Today!

Six years old and more gorgeous every day!

We had a Carnival Party at home with 10 of her friends.
The idea to have a Carnival came from Christine at 'This and That Creations'.

Liberty was very helpful when it came to decorating the cupcakes. The coloured marshmallows and candles were sent to us all the way from Holland by Sabiha!

I had my hubby help me make some vintage style carnival games.

The children all made paper bag puppets.
I didn't get a picture of them!
There's one of the party bags (in the background) that they were able to put all their prizes in.

I personalised little notepads for all the party guests.

We made these cookies for Liberty to take to school for her class.

The cake was very hastily iced this morning but Liberty loved it!
I can't believe she's six already!
(one extremely tired mother!)

  36. Dear Mercedes, I have only one daughter (for now) who has just turned 19 months ... Seeing your photos, I understand how a mother can do to make memorable the easier moments. Thank you for this: sometimes, lost behind the mundane commitments, I am afraid of forgetting what really matters: love and commitment for my family!
    Liberty is the mirror of happiness (I see that she was no longer separated from the skirt that you brought from Paris!) and the party that you have organized is wonderful :-)
