The Saturday after school started (yes, we've been busy) we had Mary's birthday party. She chose to have a "Chef Party." First, all the guests decorated their own apron and we made paper toques.
Then they each made their own pizzas. I didn't realize doing the dough would be so hard for kids this age. It was a little crazy because they all needed help, but they enjoyed it. After eating their pizza, they decorated jumbo-sized chocolate cupcakes (notice they had ditched their hats by this time). All the kids seemed to really enjoy themselves, and Mary said it was her best birthday party ever. I'm glad. It was kind of a lot of work, but it was worth it. Very fun!
