Birthday Party

May 22nd, 2014 at 04:59 pm

I have almost $300 in F's birthday account... this party will NOT be that much, and all gifts already paid for. No big presents (unless Grandma and Grandpa get her a new bike, which may happen), but the gifts are meaningful to her.

She is getting:
- a replica Brazuca (that's the World Cup ball)
- kids' guide to the World Cup
- Arsenal piggy bank (combining the love of pigs and Arsenal football club)
- my old snoopy (she has been very into old Peanuts cartoons!)
- a tshirt and water bottle I made for her on cafepress with characters and quotes from Yonderland, her favorite tv show
- I am making her stilts (already bought the wood) from a pattern they gave us at circus camp last summer

Now that I type out the list, that's a lot of stuff. None of of it cost much, and at least one thing was free, but I think she'll be thrilled!

Grandad (in the UK) and the UK Grandma will probably send money, and so she can decide what to get - maybe a peanuts cartoon book or Ultimate Weird but True or a book of jokes or puzzles.

And now I'm off to make a list of fun frugal things to do this summer!

    That sounds perfect! Stilts sound like fun.

    She is really good on the stilts! She is doing circus camp again this year. I am going to pop in there tomorrow afternoon to get a stilt measurement (the main thing I need is how high to put the foot platforms).

    Sounds fun...and great gifts!

    Stilts do sound like fun! We'd have a Spurs piggy bank, but my DD would love all of those.

    Oh, English Castle! We need to be in the UK more! Have you seen Yonderland? - best show ever!
