Today we got to have a super fun, super silly birthday party for Pup! She has been asking for a monkey birthday for months and with lots of help from my mom and brother, we made it happen! There were monkeys everywhere, ears for the kids, A monkey dress for Pup, and of course a monkey cake! Everyone had a great time (I am pretty sure) and there was some silliness as well! Here are some pictures of my sweet darling’s 5th birthday!
Today my sweet amazing girl is 8! I cant believe that she has grown up so fast! I love her so much! I love that she is so particular, that she know what she wants, and that she always sets out to succeed. I love her ablilty to manage things, and to guild and teach other people. She is truly a gift and even when it doesn’t seem like it, I know she is here to teach me to love, to achieve my best, and live in the moment! This year my girl didn’t know what she wanted for her birthday. She finally decided that she wanted a Frozen Birthday Party. She was so excited about it, and ready to have all her family and friends over to celebrate. However the weather, and her small case of pnenomia we weren’t able to have quite the party we thought, but we still had fun. It was just Grandma and Grandpa, and Bunny’s Best friend, but it was everything it needed to be. My brother made some amazing cut outs of Anna and Elsa. He drew and painted them. They made the decoration amazing! We also hung snowflakes we made by cutting coffee filters! My mom made some, the girls made some, and I made some. To be honest, they are pretty fun! 🙂 I also had some pompom yarn that looks like snowballs that we hung up! The center piece of the whole party was the cake! My mom made a beautiful cake with all the charaters from the movie. To top it all off, a sparkly tinsel back drop with pine trees was all set for pictures! Bunny loved it and since she was finally feeling betterish, she was able to enjoy it!
As you can see, it was a great party. Everyone had fun and there were lots of smiles, and lots of happiness! This all happened yesterday. Today was her official birthday and to celebrate we did her Celebration of Life as a family. After that it was pizza and a movie together (Bunny’s dinner of choice). She loved everything, Pup loved everything, and I am happy that she was happy! So happy Birthday to my sweet darling 8 year old! I cant wait to live another year with you!
Today was party time for our homeschool group! We wanted to have a fun harvest/fall party for the kids filled with traditional games, a hayride, and just plain fun! The kids were so excited….esspecailly about the hay ride! Want to see all our fun? Here are some pictures:
Next we loaded up for hay rides! My darling hubbie was there to drive the tractor around the road. The kids LOVED it! I think it may have been one of the highlights of the party! I was so glad that he was able to come by and drive them all around!
So there you have it! It was an awesome fall harvest party for the kids! We all had such a good time playing, talking, and spending some great time together! What do you do to celebrate the autumn season? Happy Harvest!
If you have been wondering why I am not posting about amazing back to school fun, its because I was working really hard to pull together a surprise party for my neighbor! It was a beach party no less (summer is not over, summer is not over) with a 70s flair and tons of great family fun! Want to see what we got to do? Well here it goes!
As you can see the party was just too much fun for everyone! It was a perfect surprise and a perfect summer beach party! However with the party over, its time to throw myself into some serious school planning and reorganization of the school room! I have been making a chalk board, clearing shelves and creating a good way to have everything in its place! Don’t worry there will be a reveal soon! I hope you had a good weekend!
Well spring cleaning has been going well but it has taken alot out of me! That means there really hasn’t been to much to share with you! But the other day our homeschool group got together to celebrate Earth Day! It was a perfect way to have some fun in the middle of a busy week! After a wee bit of decorating (it is me after all), we started out celebration off with a fun craft. Each child got a piece of natural earth clay and they rolled it into an earth. The they added some blue dyed stones. Add a shake of glitter and a stick, and now you have beautiful, natural garden markers! The kids had a lot of fun with it! Plus they turned out so pretty!
After that we read a fun vintage book called Junk Day on Juniper Street. In the story everyone decides that they need to get rid of some junk. After everyone clears out their houses, they needed to wait a day for the truck. As they waited, they started to find that their neighbors junk was just what THEY needed! In the end, there was no junk! We talked about how reusing thing is better then just throwing then away! Next we read the creation story right from the bible. After ward we talked about what Earth Day means and what we should do to protect they Earth and why we need to do those things.
Finally it was time to eat! We had a tea with all the food representing one part of the creation story! The kids thought it was so much fun and yummy! 😉 Do you want to see what food we had? Here they are:
Today was Pup’s family birthday party! It looked mostly the same, but I did add some elements of fun to the zoo theme! I updated the post from Tuesday, so you have to stop to see! My mom made the cake and it was too cute! Go Ahead and look….I’ll wait right here while you do!
Very cool right? Well this afternoon we had another fun party for my sister! It was all things girlie and very pretty and fun! Pink was color and everything was sparkly! It turned out really pretty! I’m sure you want to see since you are still in the party mood from checking out Pup’s Party. So here are the pictures! Let me know what you think!
Today, 4 years ago I welcomed my sweet and silly little girl! She was a chubby little one and full of personality right from the start! I think at one point I took 20 pictures of her in the hospital and she was making a different face in each one of them! She has grown so much into a smiley, curious, and happy girl. Every day brings her smiles and her giant bear hugs for no reason at all! I love this little ray of sunshine that was sent into our lives!
Now my little Pup requested a zoo birthday ( which goes perfectly with her cheetah study) and she wanted it to have purple mixed with pink (fuchsia) as a color! So today she had some friends over to celebrate her birthday (we are having a party for all the family this weekend) and I think I managed to pull off the theme really well! She loved it at any rate when she saw it all for the first time at 5:45am! Let’s just say she was excited! The family party we had was held the next weekend and it looked th same with a few changes. I have updated everything so you can see it all! Would you like to see the party? Well here is what a purple pink zoo looks like!
Superheros and here and they are partying! Last week was my brothers birthday and it was quite a heroic time! 🙂 My mom sewed masks for everyone, there was an awesome skyline back drop, and a cake that was yummy…um…sorry… really cool! The best way explain it all is to just show you!
Today is Valentines Day and the girls were so excited! But with all the party planning I have been up to with Pup’s Birthday thats coming up and planning for Lent, I really didnt do too much. Well I thought it would be fun for the girls if they woke up to some Valentine-y fun! So I printed, cut, and decorated after they were in bed last night and got everything ready! They loved it! Plus I promised them some amazing pink heart pancake breakfast, and they were over the moon! I love surprising them!
Today my sweet girl you are turning seven. I cant tell you how very proud and amazed I am of you. You have asked this year for a Lego themed birthday party and I did my best to give you just that. You love the building, the creating, and the endless possibilities! There is nothing you love more then making things of your very own and I love the creativity that you have the flows into each thing that you do. You have shown me this past year that you are growing up in so many ways. You are more confident in your abilities, more outgoing with your friends, and more excited about learning new things. You want to do new things, and not just do them, but to recreate them better then they were before! Nothing makes me happier then to see the things that you excite you and to see your sunshiny smile light up a room! I love you more then you could ever know and I cant wait to see what you learn, how your grow, and what you create this year! Happy Happy Birthday my darling girl!
On Saturday, Bunny had her party with some of her friends! We cleared all of ourselves off of the normal decor and added all of her favorite Lego creations and some random bricks. We wrapped all the the picture frames with wrapping paper and added some circles to make them look like giant Lego bricks! The white pictures with the colored legos on it were hand made from pieces of paper that I glued on the paper and added the dots to them! It was really time consuming, but they looked great! Bunny helped me make some of them! I think I may have been able to make them on the computer, but this way Bunny got to help and we had fun! The girls got to color some pages I printed from Lego.com, and we also played find Stephanie the Lego girl, What am I Building (like pictionary), and of course tons of free building! They all really enjoyed it, but hiding and finding the 10 Stephanie figures was by far the favorite game! We played it a million time and the girls even took turns hiding it! The figure I printed off from a web image. Food was simple lunch food, but we wrapped it all to look like Legos! The girls thought it was fun to unwrap their lunch! Plus there was cupcakes for dessert! 🙂 For party favors, I made some rings for the girls made of a Lego brick on a ring base. I also found some Lego Friends pencils and of course candy bracelets. My sister also made some lego brick necklaces for each girl with a heart and the intial of their first name on it! All of this was packaged in a little lego brick box that I made from card stock! It was a fun way to end an awesome day of play!
Today we had her family here for a party! She had a great time and the Lego theme carried on! My mom made the cake for her and she loved! I didnt change any of the decorations, so it was all still about the Legos! We also had the chance to share the traditional Montessori Celebration of Life with the whole family! Bunny loves this every year! She loves to hear stories of her early life and I love sharing the pictures too!
