In lieu of a big friend birthday party, I told Emily she could have a playdate with the Abben triplets, who are in her class. They pretty much always dress alike, and I'm still trying to remember who is who. :) This was Emily's first ever real playdate (only her peers with no moms). Lincoln had a hard time with that. He has never really been told that he can't play along with Emily.
Our snack/activity was frosting cut-out cookies. I made the letters spelling out each girls' name plus some other fun shapes. Lincoln got to frost some cookies, too. I think over half of them got consumed before even making it onto the take-home plates. :) Then they played a little of this and a little of that all over the house and yard. It was a fun little shindig, but I'm not looking to plan big friend parties anytime soon.
