5th B-day "Big People" party

This year for Erin's birthday both sets of grandparents will be in Europe. So, we celebrated with them a few weeks early by having an ice cream party!

I think Brian was on photography detail, as I got no pictures of the events.  But here she is one day later, wearing her new birthday dress and doing a birthday project - making a pot holder with a metal loom.

Remember that?  I loved that project as kid!  Actually, it took a lot of restraint not to "help" her a ton and make my own.  She was incredibly focused and even figured out a simpler way to get the cross-loops woven in using her fingers and not the metal hook.  She got about half way done, but we cut her off to start bed time procedures.
