|The loot for donation|
This post today is a little different from the previous ones. It is still Nora’s Birthday party themed. But, we are sharing what we did with her birthday gifts. If you have not already read, my fresh faced 7 year old had two parties. One with friends and one with family the following day. So that would be a lot of gifts. We had 12 girls at the party, which would mean 12 gifts. I have been to a lot of kid parties, and always struggle with what to get the kid. If I don’t know the family well I don’t know what they already have, if they are allowed to play with certain toys, among many other problems. So what we almost always end up picking is a bunch of random little things that equal one gift. Multiply that by 12 and that is a lot of “stuff”. The family party is a little different, they know here, our family, and her specific interests.
