Louisa’s birthday was on June 25th, but she already had plans for a camping trip with her dad. She got back on July 5th, so she had a small party yesterday. It worked out well since Evil Twin was coming for a visit and Trudy would be with her. Louisa looks up to Trudy since she’s such an accomplished dancer. Louisa hopes to be as good at music someday as Trudy is at dance.
Louisa decided she wanted her party to be a dress up party, so the girls were to wear their prettiest dresses. Before the girls arrived, her mom gave her a present: this cute doll. She was super excited because it was a doll just like one she had seen on Julie Newman’s 70’s Time Capsule. “Wow mom! This is so cool! I didn’t realize they still made them?!”
A few minutes later, Alya, Cassandra and Trudy arrived. “You all look so pretty! This is going to be so much fun.”
Once everyone got settled, it was time to open presents.
“OOOOOoooo, a Minions puzzle! This will be fun to put together. Thanks Cassandra!” Next was her present from Trudy.
“Look at this cute little teddy bear, he’s adorable! Thanks Trudy!” Then it was time for her gift from Alya.
“Oh wow! A bag just like yours, just in a different shade! This will come in very handy for school and taking things with me when I go to stay with my dad. Thank you so much! Thank you everyone for the wonderful gifts.”
Then it was time for food. Louisa had picked out the menu: cheese and crackers, deviled eggs, cookies and pastries and her favorite carrot cake. It was her grandma’s recipe, her mom did a beautiful job with it, didn’t she?
Everyone had a great time and ate way too much food, I don’t think anyone had any dinner! That’s what birthdays are for though. Thank heavens we had a beautiful day for the party, Louisa’s mom said when they first started outside they weren’t sure the weather was going to cooperate. It would have been terrible for those girls to have gotten rained on in their pretty dresses, wouldn’t it?
Happy (belated) Birthday Louisa!
