On the day itself, Elizabeth was able to bring donuts into her classroom. George spent a couple hours the night before searching for a place that sells donuts. He found one, finally, under the ground in a metro passageway. What a special treat! That afternoon she also got to open her presents from family. She got what she really wanted - thanks to help from our friends - a Journey Girl doll!

The party was on Saturday. We invited her 5 classmates and our good friends, Sveta, Denis, and their daughter Erika. Three of her classmates were able to come (one ended up on the other side of town). See if you can guess the theme. We played "Pin the Ponytail on Barbie", "Barbie Shoe Drop," "Barbie Scavenger Hunt," and "Dress-up Relay."

George was able to find someone to make a Barbie cake. (Thank you, Sveta, for the reference.)

It was a fun day of celebration! Happy birthday, Elizabeth!
