Because her birthday is in January, outside functions aren't really practical. And inside functions require more space than we have. So....we either rent a space (at extreme cost) or go on the small side...not entirely satisfying.
So, after some brainstorming, we looked at the calendar and deemed October 4th to be Savannah's official pretend-birthday. By way of celebration, we threw together a scavenger hunt at Lowville to be followed with cookies and juice, birthday cake and...(another drum roll, please)
...Uncle Simon up a tree to hang.....(still drum-rolling)
...our old friend Dora (recycled)....who we whacked mercilessly with a great, big stick. ;}
All reports indicate that a good time was had by all....especially the 'Birthday' girl.
