My son can no longer be considered as a preschooler, but as a young boy. I can’t believe my Miracle Baby is 6 years old! Where does the time go?
So RB wanted a Military Birthday Party. It was a fun theme.
Here is what we did:
1. We kept it simple and as cheap as possible. For past birthdays I’ve been more frivolous, so this was a good challenge for me. Simple table cloths, balloons, homemade cake with ice cream, and small goody bags. Nothing stressful.
It was called the “Hair and Lips Center.” I was invited by two short people to have my hair and lips “done.” All of the supplies were spread out over the footstool and a small chair was in front for me to sit in. I had a nice pile of Little Critter books to read while “Andi and Joe” were working on my hair.
I had two colors of sparkle lip gloss put on; a comb stuck on the side of my head and hair bows all over. Continue reading
I was invited to a baby shower today. I don’t know about you, but when I’m invited to events, I try very hard to make sure I can go. This was no different. I received the invitation around 9:45 this morning and the baby shower was to take place….um, then.
In the living room.
My living room.
There was a mound of “gifts” in the middle of the room.
The Little Mama sat on the couch and RB sat next to her. I was to be the camera person and sit on the chair opposite the present opening.
Three rings for the Elven-Kings under the sky…One ring to rule them all…
We had about 10 minutes of snow this morning…and now the sun is out.
It got me to thinking about the snow we had over two years ago when we got a little creative….
In my opinion, No. In my husband’s opinion, Yes.
And even Mrs. Morland in Northanger Abbey questions, “I wonder if it can be good for her, my dear, to read quite so many novels?”
So my bookshelves are overflowing and I can’t seem to stop buying new ones. Every book has the potential to be a great one.
Is this you, too?
My husband is 5 weeks younger than me. He doesn’t let me forget this fact. So this means that I turned 40 before he did. In fact, he isn’t really 40 quite yet. But because our milestone birthdays are so close together, we decided to throw a hum-dinger of a birthday party for friends and family.
We had a great time, and I hope it was memorable for those who came. But we did learn a few things while planning and executing this festive occasion. So if you decide to throw a hum-dinger of a party, please consider the following:
1. Choose a fun theme. I had no idea what to do, but I KNEW I did not want people dressing in black, bringing grave stones, and saying everything is down hill from here. I wanted to celebrate life: My life and my husband’s. So I chose to do a “Roast.” Not a sarcastic, bring ‘em down, type roast. But a silly story, walk down memory lane, words of affirmation type roast. My husband and I asked certain people to “roast” the other; and we ended up with 7 people willing to be a part of this entertainment. Continue reading
Can you guess who’s under the furniture?
