Dylan's 7th Birthday!

We missed Dylan's party (on Saturday the 10th) as AA's Eagle Harbor PGA Junior Team made it to the Jacksonville City Championship game (which they won, shall I say it again!!). Thursday, we brought dinner (chili and cornbread) to their home and held a small celebration for Dylan's birthday.
We gave her some gifts (ice cream sprinkles, a book about movie Moana, a skort, some paint supplies and a Star Wars Christmas tree ornament) and brought a birthday chocolate sheet cake, peanut brittle and they made some no-bake chocolate peppermint cookies.
I took many photos to put in our Christmas cards.

Only six yellow candles - I goofed!
Really tasty cookies and they look festive. Start with a box of chocolate wafer cookies, melt some white chocolate and stir in some peppermint extract; crush some candy canes. Dip one side of the cookies and sprinkle the crushed candy cane on top, let cool/harden. Easy!
The birthday table is set.....
Making the cookies:
More photos around their Christmas tree (glad they have one up, the house still has about a month of repairs left!); and some photos outdoors while climbing in a tree/bush!
Look at their faces, this bush could not hold all three of them! Dylan and AA both came in with a bloody scratch!
Trying to smile while steadying themselves!
Another try!
All smiles again once back on firm ground!
I told them to smile normal, like nice, as Grandmother's were going to get these photos. Livi said something about not acting like Madonna or such and made everyone laugh!
That's a wrap!
