Cassia's Birthday Party

Yesterday we celebrated Cassia's 7th birthday with an art party. She loves to do anything artistic so she had a great time. She invited lots of friends from both the neighborhood and her class at school. I think if I did this party over again, I would have more games and less art. Some of the kids were not as into it as Cassia was. We did spiralgraphs, marble painting (my favorite, I think I have some budding Jackson Pollocks on my hands!), acrylic on canvas, pastels, and shaving cream art. What a day, but I am glad it's over! Birthday parties wear me out.


I'm secretly very proud of this cake. I've never worked with fondant before and was pleasantly surprised by how well it worked out!

I'm so grateful for my mom's help! I couldn't have done it without her!

Marble art. Notice Red's. He dumped almost the whole bottle of green paint on it. I still don't think it's dry almost 24 hours later!

Shaving cream art. This was a last minute addition when I noticed that we were cruising through the other projects too fast. I'm glad Wal-Mart is so close!

Hunter's marble art. I am going to frame them! I love it!
