Happy Birthday Bessie!
We celebrated our first birthday in Playgarden, Bessie is 5! Lisa told the Rainbow bridge story, while Bessie's Mom filled in special memories from each year of Bessie's Life. Lisa made Bessie her Birthday Crown and the sweet little angel doll she used in the Birthday Story Puppet Play. Kiera got to play Bessie's angel in the story and most importantly she got to wear a yellow silkie!
We had a lemon blueberry cake and a little circle of gnomes birthday ring during snack time. Everyone sung Happy Birthday to Bessie, and she made a wish upon, her hastily dipped, beeswax candles I whipped up really quick when I realized I didn't have any on hand... (note to self to stock up on candles for future birthdays).
Then Bessie opened a few presents made by the Playgarden Mama's. Isn't her new hat so sweet? She was gifted with a crochet hat and a cute crochet flower ring, an angel baby, a birthday crown and a gnome peg doll. Such a sweet day for a very sweet girl!
