My sister came into town a few weeks ago, so she hosted her annual "cousins' birthday party" for all of her nieces and nephews! Each year has had a super fun theme and this year did not disappoint.
The party had a book theme, so all the kids came dressed as favorite book characters.
Wesley-Gwydion from The Prydain Chronicles
Lincoln-Gary from Pingo and the Playground Bully
Maxwell-a duck from Animal Sounds
Their cousins had pretty awesome costumes, too!
-a demon from Fablehaven
My brother made this super awesome giant book where book-themed activities were revealed like Harry Potter wand-choosing and a scavenger hunt to find chocolate frogs, roasting hot dogs and marshmallows from Bailey Goes Camping, acting out fairy tales, hearing an ancestor story in conjunction with David Copperfield, and more!
I laughed so hard tears were coming down as the kids played Bean-boozled with Bertie Botts' Every Flavor Beans. Their reactions were priceless!
My mom even made monogrammed library book bags to give the kids as party favors!
All in all, it was an awesome party!
Thanks to Aunt Breanne for starting a much-anticipated tradition,
and thanks to Grammy, Aunt Avalon, and Uncle Bronson for helping to put it together.
