I felt the need to preface today's post with a definition and a link to an article which states "big city living" can wreak havoc on your mental state.  It might clear up a few things.

We don't stop playing because we grow old; we grow old because we stop playing.

                                                              - George Bernard Shaw                                                                                                                                                            

So, without further ado, I bring you Kiwi's Sweet 16 birthday bash!

Everybirdy's welcome!

Pearlie, get out of the shot!

We all know I am the photogenic one in this flock!

Will this crown make me look fat?

No way, Jose!

What's a birthday party without balloons?

And a "tablescape"

Cutlery not necessary!

Of course there must be  presents

All cash, no seeds!

And birthday "cupcakes"  Thanks Auntie T.!  (For a recipe for safe birdy muffins (people like them too!)  click here )

Cupcakes by but not for birdies :(

We hope you brought your dancing shoes!  This is our dance favorite!

Wait, the party's not over yet!    We need to pick the winner of our first giveaway!

We love our followers!!

The birthday bird helped picked the winner.

Next time get the Random Generator!
And the winner is

La, from A Musing Potpourri

Congratulations, La!  Please email me your address and I will send this right out to you.  If you need clip-ons, let me know, otherwise the earrings are for pierced ears.

Thanks for joining us for Kiwi's Sweet 16, and our first giveaway!
