Our celebration was more simple this year because Cruz was not in a Guatemalan school to be a part of their parties. Days like this really make me miss him being in Spanish school. We had our normal day of homeschool and just added celebrations in.
I always decorate for special occasions. A few years ago I made a banner that I hang each year and I always have streamers and balloons. For the past three years the boys and I have made crowns for them to wear on this day just for fun. They are my little kings for the day. I decorate when they go to bed at night so that it will be a fun surprise for them when they wake up the next morning. Here is our dining room decorated for kid's day this year-
It's just a simple banner, streamers, balloons, and the table set for breakfast. I placed their crowns on their plates to wear while they ate.

I took this photo of them watching cartoons in the afternoon. They look so sweet here!
This was our lemon cake in 2013 and vanilla cake in 2014.

It was a great way to end our day being with friends. Children are a blessing from the Lord and sometimes it's good to stop and celebrate the precious gift that they are.
