Birthday Party

This weekend we had Littletree’s birthday party :) My sister, brother and niece came up for the week, which was wonderful.

Since there was no way I could even begin to match the extravaganza of last year’s birthday (here and here), I decided to go with the ultimate in low-key. We held the party at the local playground in our village, which was great, as the kids could just play and run around rather than needing any games.

I decided not to make the usual “party” food, and instead made a big selection of home made dips – Hummous, Labaneh, Baba Ganouj, Guacamole and Tahine, served with an array of carrot and celery sticks, and some crackers, with a big bowl of fruit on the side.

  2. Not the usual party food? Looks like what we eat! LOL! I will be shot if I did not supply all the homemade dips at our parties.

    And I want to thank you Majikfaerie, for your insight, intelligence and inspiration over the past couple of months, as our family heads down the pathway of the radical unschoolers. I've finally written my own thoughts about unschooling in my blog, and would love for you to read it and give any feedback if you feel so inclined...

    Thank you!


Thanks for your lovely words, witty banter and entertaining discussion :)
