I made fossil shortbread cookies. The cookies kind of puffed for some reason while they were baking, so the fossils weren't as defined as I would have liked. I dusted them with a patina of cinnamon to make the edges stand out a little better.
Dinosaur birthday cake (white cake with raspberry lemon buttercream frosting) surrounded by chocolate rocks.
Thanks to our local Goodwill, we are now the proud owners of a bajillion tea cups. I am sure they will be put to good use.
The entire spread. There were cheese sandwiches, jam sandwiches, fossil cookies, chocolate rocks, peppermint tea, pink lemonade and birthday cake. Oh and of course a multitude of prehistoric table dwellers.
The birthday girl. We had a Cosby Show moment before getting dressed for her party. Remember the episode where Rudy wants to wear the summer dress to the fall party and her mother wouldn't let her? That was us this morning. But just like the Cosby Show, it all worked out in the end and she looked perfectly cute in her sweater dress.
Last, but not least, I thought I would share the gift that I made for her. She'd been bugging me forever to make her a wooden camera. So I gathered a few blocks from her room, some other random wooden bits and some paint. Voila, homemade camera. Nothing like a present that doesn't cost me a dime.
