If you have wondered why the blog has slowed down a notch or two as of late...you now know the reason. I've been in the middle of preparing some serious birthday fun. And let me tell you...we had FUN! Yes I got a little obsessive, what with painting clothes pin people, sewing banners, and cutting out feathers while nursing a baby...(OK, that didn't really happen...but you get the idea). I know that little A would have been just as happy with a store bought celebration...but let's face it...I wouldn't have been. And when they are three...momma still gets to do what she wants...sort of.
The goodie bags were a hit with the littles (because of the ring pops and slimy slugs inside of course...but I was happy with the packaging).
I made A's costume out of an XL mens second hand shirt found last minute at the Salvation Army. It was the perfect color and texture and I was pretty happy with how it turned out. Jon made him the hat and came up with the idea of grommeting the holes for the laces in the shirt. We make a good team I think.
And of course there is no party until all the littles arrive! What a treat. We had almost every character from Neverland represented. Tent poles were turned into swords, banners were struck down, leaves were turned into art and we played "following the leader" during a cup cake walk. I felt like a kid again. Loved it. Now I can relax...and start planning for Easter!
