After the game was over with, it was time to get down to business! Rebecca brought out the cake so everyone could sing Happy Birthday and Cassandra could make a wish.
Now it was time to open presents. She was soooooo excited!!!
Shivan, Rebecca, Kit and Marie-Grace all went together and got her two Minion play sets she’d had her eye on.
The Pittsburgh girls got her two Minions that played sounds, very cool…
And some money!!! She immediately said “oh good, I can use this to buy another Minion Surprise!”
Zara and Abby got her a Minion Surprise and a big stuffed Bob to go with the Stuart she already has.
Jan brought her a Minion handpuppet and another Minion Surprise!
Louisa got her a giant Minion coloring book with stickers, a Minion surprise and a cool storage tin.
Alya gave her a very special gift, something that she’d made–a pair of sleep pants and a t-shirt! She also got her a Minion surprise Megablok set. Cassandra was very surprised and excited!
The last package she opened was the biggest, she said she wanted to save it for last. It’s a good thing she did because it was a BIG surprise:
A reversible throw for her bed, and…
A Minion themed sleeping bag! I made these items for her, I talked to her mom about things she could really use and the sleeping bag was her suggestion. Maybe now we can get the afghan throw off her bed and back to the living room.
It wouldn’t be a birthday party without the after present opening pile of paper:
Cassandra thanked everyone for their thoughtful gifts, then all of the girls were off to the bedrooms to change into their PJ’s for the movie and slumber party. Cassandra was so excited to try out her new PJ’s and her sleeping bag! Stay tuned…
