Little Sis is five years old! We threw our little Raggedy Ann-themed party.
The vintage paper items were found on eBay. The bunting was made using a free digital kit from Kitschy Digitals. The large doll in the rocking chair was made by a great-aunt in Oklahoma. I have pictures of me with it when I was just a baby. (I guess she's 1970s vintage, too!) The small doll belongs to one of the daughters. My dad bought them each a doll at Cracker Barrel when they were little. I ordered all the beverage mixes from the Raggedy Land website. I made the pumpkin spice cake with cream cheese frosting (Little Sis's choice!), as well as the chocolate cupcakes. We also had popcorn and finger foods. My friend Wendi, who bakes as Sweet Sugarlicious, made some very sweet cookies.
I read Raggedy Ann: A Please, Thank You, and I Love You Book, and we made Raggedy Ann paper plate faces, but only after a bit of swinging and wagon riding in the backyard. Little Sis opened some wonderful gifts: Lalaloopsy dolls, clothes (including a shiny new pair of ruby slippers!), art supplies, an American Girl doll restaurant play set, and two cameras from Grandpa, including a Fuji Instax mini of her own.
No more birthday parties for the rest of the year! Yay!!!
Just that pesky Thanksgiving and Christmas to think about. My favoritest time of the whole entire year...
