Amelia spent some time this morning decorating white envelopes with the British flag. Jeff came home a little early so I would have some time to run to the store, and so he could pick up the things Amelia had made at school for the event.(As I type right now, it is just pouring rain– but the weather was absolutely perfect just an hour ago, as we lounged in our garden with patriotic snacks.) Thank goodness!
Of course, all the treats helped.
There were so many items available to buy to celebrate the Diamond Jubilee. I was really tempted to buy red, white and blue old-fashioned paper straws, and all sorts of kitschy-cute things. Luckily, you can do a lot with muffin cups!
Amelia wore her medal that she received for participating in national projects to honor Her Majesty.
A crown! And it’s been 60 years since Queen Elizabeth began her reign!Amelia wanted there to be games, and suggested Egg and Spoon.

Amelia made certain that we finished every last crumb of our party food. She had a good time.I think the Queen would approve… It’s a fun year to live in England!
