Maddie had a birthday party for 20 of her friends.
She wanted to do something new, the best of latest trends.
So she picked a cooking party and asked all to “Cook the Part”
She provided them with aprons, but that was just the start.
Rolling pins and pizza pans were provided for each team
They rolled out dough and shaped it â€“ not like pizzas we have seen
Lots of toppings were provided, including veggies plus lots more
Most topped them off with sauce and cheese, but who is keeping score?
Next they picked a cookie, a butterfly or heart
Which they decorated beautifully â€“ another work of art.
They had multi-colored icing, jelly beans and more.
The kids could pick out anything, like from a candy store.
Maddie wore a cowboy hat instead of a princess crown
She wanted painted faces and her mom never lets her down
So all the girls were decorated in multi-colored masks
But that was not the end of it, there were many other tasks
They fed the ducks at Fairbanks lake and had a real fun time.
But all are wondering what’s up next year when Maddie will turn nine!
