It only makes sense that she'd choose to have a Trolls themed party. This year, we decided we weren't going to go crazy and we'd just have a pinata at the park with a handful of friends. But then she was worried that certain people at the party would feel alone, so we had to make sure to invite mutual friends...what is this, a wedding?? She wouldn't let it drop until her friends had friends. As time got closer, I had to ask a few favors, and as a thank you invited more. Before I knew it there were 16 kids coming! Queue a bad weather forecast and suddenly we were in a gym instead of at the park. Now I had to provide entertainment in lieu of a playground. Whaaaat. So I set up one corner with a tv playing the trolls movie the whole time, a bubble machine in another corner, borrowed a jump house for the third, and in the last corner we decorated troll cookies and did scrapbooking. Yikes! How did this happen??
By now she's pretty certain that having a birthday means you get to dress up in a new costume. This was my first successful handmade t-shirt. I found this website particularly helpful for the neckline, but drafted the pattern for the shirt off of some other clothes that fit her well.
Me: I don't know. And don't count on it. Adelle has her ways.
Oh, and one more troll project:
