Today, Cliodhna rounded up some friends to horse around with her.
The weather last week was glorious here, but this weekend was cold. Like, we saw some white stuff cold! Our all outdoor party had to be adjusted (and so did my attitude about it) to mostly indoors. I decided it really was a “First world problem” and it would sound pretty shallow if I complained that we had to whip up a last minute Pin the Tail on the Pony, instead of play Shoo the Fly outdoors!
The Party started with a visit to the Branding Station(aka the bathroom) for some face painting.
Next, it was coats and mitts on for a quick sack race, and bobbing for apples. Oh, yes I did! Who can say they have done these activities while it was snowing?
Enjoying the apples while listening to some stories.
A sugar cube stack game.
Cliodhna’s just fell as I snapped the picture.
Hey, who can stack the most cubes on their tongue?? This was a hit, of course.
On to Pin the Tail on the Pony (with a good attitude about it)
Thoughtful and gracious gifts.
And back atcha!
Gift bags contained- Horse Stickers, candy apples, candy carrots, hats, Bandanas, and Pearl craft kits.
Some of the Grub
Not pictured- Hickory sticks for Hay, Candy corn (surprisingly 4 of 5 love!) Pumpkin dip and graham crackers, Wagon wheels, ranch with veggies, meat and cheese, sandwiches, chips and salsa.
Then it was off to the stable where Cliodhna rides. The girls worked together to brush the horses, and then each got a turn to ride them!
