I love that Jonah's birthdays have all been based on his favorite book at the time. Two was Busytown and Three was Pooh.
And for four we embarked on a Magic Treehouse adventure.
We walked to Hallowed Hill, where Daddy had organized a tree house (laundry rack hung with cloth) and some good friends with scrolls...
Our magical friends from Camelot are lost!
And we need your help to find them.
You must go to Hallowed Hill in the time of Camelot and King Arthur. In the green wood, look for bridge that runs over a creek. There you will find the first two friends.
Along the way, collect golden stars from each of the friends that you meet, and put them your notebooks.
"We wish we could go there"
They found Teddy and Kathleen, Merlin and his dog and they freed Morgan LaFay.
"That was a Grand Adventure Mum!" (if only he knew how much that one phrase, which was delivered with such enthusiasm, made all the planning worthwhile.)
Then we were back to our house for a birthday tea.
The Cake... a treehouse of course. I made three round cake tins and then cut them into squares minus the door and windows. I painted the doors and windows with dark chocolate. I really enjoyed making Annie and Jack dolls (based from the pipe cleaner man in the book Feltcraft) and the mini books for in the windows and I love that Jonah can now play with these, even thought the cake is eaten.
After the party and dinner he opened all the gifts family have sent or I made (and for my crafty readers I'll show the projects next week.)
And today we stayed in our pajamas most of the day and read new books, played new games, enjoyed new toys and then all took a nap (yep, Mum too!)
