A Party-tastic Package From Whimsy Love

A week, or so ago, I won the party-tastic give away from the Whimsy Love blog. It was very exciting to win, but even more exciting today, when the loot arrived.

The package was opened with great anticipation by all.

Candy was snatched.

A whistle was blown.

...garlands were examined. Were they sumo wrestlers?

No, a quick look back at Whimsy Love, told us they were cupcakes. Well yes, of course they were!

Paper crowns were tried on...

...as well as hair clips...

...and a ring.

Thaumatropes were spun...

...and paper dolls cut out.

Stickers were absconded with (I don't know who took them, but I'm sure they'll turn up on my walls).

And, a twirly straw was seized.

After a crazy whirl of activity, that lasted for practically an entire quarter of an hour, I was left with the bits of paper, and wrapping, a friendly note from the Whimsy Girls herself, and one pin - just for me.

If you haven't had a chance to become acquainted with the Whimsy Love blog, then I encourage you to check it out, especially her first day back to school snapshot. It's priceless. In fact, she has the exact expression I plan to use when the kids leave home for college.
And, thanks Whimsy Love, for the little party in a box. It was great fun.

It's great to be a homeschooler!
