Eliza's Alice Birthday Party

Eliza wanted to do an Mad Tea Party birthday party just like Rosie had done! It wasn't hard to repeat, and we had a great time.

Guests found our house with balloons and signs.

We began with "The Queen Says" while the guests were still arriving.

The we divided into groups to make hats or play croquet.

They had a lovely "tea" with all Eliza's favorites wearing their fancy hats and Entertained by Jason.

She opened presents cooling off indoors.  Then the kids played "Follow the White Rabbit" in rabbit ears from the dollar store.
Finally, she had cake indoors and we sent the kids home with their ears, hats, and a fun sucker.

Laura as Amaryllis in Music Man at Sundance

Laura was cast as "Amaryllis" in Music Man that played all summer at Sundance Summer Theater.  She got to work with professors and professionals and had an amazing experience.  She learned so much from all of them.
She made many new friends and it was a show that we all loved going to again and again.
Another bonus was that she got paid for acting in this one.  So proud of this girl!

This is the poster we made for her 7th birthday at school to tell about herself.  I think she's awfully cool!
