A Very Belated Birthday Post

Since my computer has only been working off and on I haven't been able to share some photos from K's 5th birthday back in September (sorry family!), so I thought I would go ahead and do it now... even if it is over a month late.

Kevin's mother was visiting and he was miserably sick for K's birthday so it was a hard day on us all, I admit I was stressed beyond my limits but K still loved her day and it all somehow worked out.

Here's her birthday in pictures:

Apples are a huge theme for her birthday celebration every year (September has always been 'apple month' to us), as you will see...


Birthday preparations (We made some yummy sugar free delights: apple doughnuts, apple cider, apple cookies and apple cake)

The day after her birthday C and I had the pleasure to spend the day at school with K for her celebration there.

I hope you all have a great weekend and a wonderful Halloween!

I was so happy to see this post.. was wondering how to ask for a glimpse of K's special day! It looks like such a special happy celebration! x

Just catching up here, Nicole! Love the photos and the projects you have been working on. What a sweet birthday and girl you have! Happy belated!
You can email me with an answer if you like, but I am wondering if the Waldorf school K is in is a private school or charter? Is it costly? I am sure you know the whole Waldorf status around here from Marina, but there is a group trying to get a Waldorf-esque charter up and running (with great difficulty) and I would love to talk with anyone in the know of how to do this!

Every time i try to view your new post it says it can't be found :(

Annie@Imagination said...

Mine recently had their 'rainbow bridge' story at preschool too for their fourth birthday... such loveliness. I just posted photographs - though frankly they're all from the children playing outside, not from inside the school!

thank you for sharing, it looks like a breautiful birthday celebration for your 5 year old!

I really love that hanging apple tree mobile with the bird in the background. Any ideas of where to get that? I would love to get that for my soon to be baby. Thanks!

Nicole Spring (Frontier Dreams) said...

Thank you!

The apple tree mobile is made by Kinderkram. I bought it from a friend but if you google it, it should come up. HTH!

Maria - I was tolf the Rainbow Bridge story but an old teacher a few years back and I just use that.
I believe I found the baskets at a thrift store. HTH!

Kelsey - I was having issues with blogger that day. I cancelled it. Sorry for the confusion!
