Birthday party fun

Elisabeth had a little birthday party for five of her friends on Monday afternoon. Sometimes even the low-key birthday parties that we do feel like a huge undertaking, and I was grateful that one of my friends ended up staying to help.

Anyway, it was a lovely party, although I didn't get as many photos as I wish I had -- too much else going on, I think! But here are some highlights:
