Emma's 6th birthday celebration started on the 16th, ten days before her birthday. Since her birthday always falls around Thanksgiving Break, I wanted to schedule her party early enough that her friends could be there. As an added bonus, the earlier weekend allowed Libby and Anna to come join in the fun. For the first time, we did not have her party at home but instead went to paint pottery at Firefly Art Studio. As party favors, I made aprons for each child and they left with a paint brush and set of paints. I think everybody had a great time!
