Nunu and Jadyn’s joint 7th birthday party
Nunu is 1 day older than her friend Jadyn. So the moms decided to host a joint birthday party of the two girls! The girls were so happy to have a joint birthday party. Neither one has a sister and felt like this bonded them as sisters. I was even asked if Jadyn was my twin-daughter that I have secretly never told anyone about until now.
We had prepared much food and a puppet show, in an outdoor Gazebo in a large park with lakes and waterfalls. We Southern Californians did not expect the violent winds and rain that came that day!
In the new location, we were finally able to set up and performed our puppet show.
Right after the puppet show, we invited the children to participate in the “Acorn Candle Boat” birthday wishes at the tub of water:
Pamela handmade the loveliest little acorn candle boats specially for the children! Click below to shop at her beautiful etsy.com store PrettyDreamer ! Remember to click lots of hearts and tell your friends about her store!
First, Nunu lit a candle and made a wish for her 7th birthday. Then, Jadyn lit a candle and made a wish for her 7th year. Afterwards, each birthday girl invited a friend to light a birthday acorn boat for her until each girl has 7 boats floating in the water. The wishes they received including multiple vacations, a new ballet leotard and of course, a pony for Jadyn! Then the mommies stirred the tub with sticks and the girls chased around and blew off the candles. Yes, we have earth (muddy shoes), wind, fire and water, the basic elements today. Check.
Finally, after the puppet show, the rain was over and Mr. Sun was smiling again.
