This year for Evie's 6th birthday we had a Winter Wonderland Party complete with snowflake cupcakes, chocolate fodue, snowflake making, and a jumpy house. The weather cooperated nicely with very cold temps (for us Central Coasters very cold is the low 50's -- burr!!), rain, and even HAIL (which is pretty much as close as we get to snow). But the wintry weather did not detour the kids from playing outside and enjoying the soggy jumpy house. A great day all around.

P.S. Thank you all for your well wishes and sweet notes about my Gramma. Yesterday I was sad and today I feel at peace. Things are as they should be. Babies are born into this world and Grammas are born into the next. And the circle of life goes on.
