Happy Birthday Isaac

Tessa was invited to a birthday party for her little friend Isaac. I decided to make him a super hero cape. I have never made a cape before, and I wanted his name on it. So, I got really crafty and made my own "patches" for the cape. My stitching isn't the best, but I hope he likes it. Tessa wore it for quite a while the day before his party, so at least I know she loves it!

I used super thick iron on interfacing to make my letters and star. Then I stitched them on the fabric, which didn't turn out as well as I had in mind, which is why I am not posting that picture! I used Word to make my letter patterns. So, I thought it turned out pretty good for a first try, I just hope he enjoys it!

Isaacs party was a blast too. It was held at Thanksgiving Point at the Barnyard. We saw the animals and fed them corn, got our face painted, had the chance to ride the ponies (which Tessa declined, oddly enough since we OWN horses), went for a wagon ride pulled by the tractor, got a personal time with a cute little pony just for the party kids, played some games, and had pizza and cake and ice cream. It was a lot of fun, 3 hours worth and the kids loved it!

Ashley's first sucker! She loved it!
We have darling children, I must say!

Our wagon ride. Ashley is now eyeing the candy cup!

Tessa had so much fun, she even sat on the cow!

It was such a cute little pony, until one little girl didn't hold her hand flat to feed it and it bit her finger, then everyone got a little apprehensive.

The cape is really cute! What a great gift idea. I'm totally stealing this one.
