Panda Birthday

Finally, at long last, Mana had her 4th birthday party, which had been rained out in February. We combined it with Alani's 2nd birthday party. What a smart idea! Less parties to put on during the year.

I wanted to make a homemade party favor, and when Mana was asked which animal I should make, she came up with panda bear. Well, almost a day later, Robb and I have been "panda beared out". Lucky for me, he was a willing participant and helped me cut bodies, ears, etc. I learned a lot about sewing on this project though. Like after you stuff the head, it becomes way skinnier, so it doesn't really look like a panda anymore. Robb did a good job trying to turn the cupcakes I made into pandas, but that wasn't easy either.
