Pioneer Party....Done!

My oldest had a wonderful pioneer party this weekend and I'm so glad we threw one for her. I was glad when it was over and I could put my feet up but she had a great time and all the kids were really great.
I made her a covered wagon cake using paper to form the top. I was completely paranoid that it would not work like I thought it would in my head but I was pleasantly surprised and I did keep telling myself they are only six no one will care. My daughter's covered wagon people from Schleich pulled the whole thing together nicely.
We ended up rolling out cookie dough and cutting out shapes and then while they baked the kids searched for Lincoln logs we had hid in the house so they could build their own log cabin. The game the kids loved the most was our version of marbles where they had their own marble and had to roll it into different places in the cabins that were built for prizes. All in all the three hours went by super fast and most importantly the birthday girl had a blast.Note: You can see the "family tree" my husband painted in the background, more on that tomorrow...
