CC had her big Roman feast of a birthday party today. The party included a few of her closest friends plus lots of family. It was fabulous. We moved the dining room table then laid cushions on the floor to transform it into a triclinium. We made shields then used them in a silly-string battle. We learned to throw javelins, jump through hoops, and use a hot glue gun. The house was filled with the sounds I love - happy, laughing children and adults. It was warm, bright, cozy, and perfect.
