Cooking Party

Every year I, along with the help of my mother, host a party for both of my nieces. It’s not a cause for any celebration, we just give them a party and invite over all the ones in the family.

This year we hosted a, “Cooking,” themed party. We planned out a menu and decided that the little ones would make all their own food with the help of an adult of course, we would all bake our own desserts, and we would play cooking or food related games, have prizes, etc.

My favorite part of the night I would have to say was when we all sat at the table to eat and when my youngest niece told everyone to bow their head for a prayer. I was about to say the prayer aloud until I heard her speak up and give it instead. I was so proud!

If you didn’t notice in the pictures, the girls had a great night!
