Thanks for all the birthday comments, emails, calls, facebook wall messages, tweets, etc. AND thanks for reading my crazy husband write and SHOW embarrassing stories and photos of me! Just wait, next up apparently (I haven’t read it) is part three: college, engagement and wedding. Totally fine except the college part. Not some of my best days! HA!
Anyway, it feels good to be 30 and honestly, I am so freaking excited about this decade! I have three adorable kids, an incredible husband, amazing family/friends and a rockin business! What else could I ask for?
Oh, and during this decade I will officially change my last diaper AND send ALL of my kids off to school! YIPPEE!
It was a great birthday and thanks for being a part of it all you FAKE true friends!
We took the kids to the church pumpkin patch down the street from us for a fun birthday outing and the kids had a blast…
Love the color in these photos… PEOPLE… put your kids in BRIGHT clothes for pumpkin photos!!! BRIGHT! In fact, always put your kids in bright clothing! They’ll look cute AND be easy to spot!
The high tomorrow is 56. It is CHILLY. Time for footed jammies. My favs.
A snuggly warm baby… there is nothing sweeter. So cozy. Add in hot chocolate, a fire in the fire place and a good book… heaven.
Parker turns THREE in one month and she wants a PINK SPARKLY PARTY! Any ideas?
I have a few but I would LOVE others! I’m willing to craft, sew, glue, whatever it takes!
We want to incorporate Christmas crafts into the party… so I guess it’s a pink sparkly Christmas craft party to be exact! I just thought making things the kids can give away would be nice for the moms!
Anyway, I don’t have time to sit and search all over the internet for good ideas so I’m asking the internet! Any good decorating, favor or invite ideas???
I haven’t forgotten about the Jodified Scavenger Hunt! I just got blog-swiped (say it with me… Swiper NO swiping! Ugh.) by my hubby. I will announce the winner tomorrow!
This week we are announcing a BRAND NEW product we’re offering through Fresh Art exclusively! NO OTHER photographers are offering this b/c they are HAND MADE! Will share pics and prices soon!
That’s it! Heading to bed after a fairly long day. Be gentle Tuesday, I can already tell I’m going to wake up tired! AND I’m running. In the cold. So be NICE!
Love the pics of the kids, I need more wall space. I saw a craft idea on a blog that Abbie lists on her blog. It involves tissue paper and glue and cutting out shapes, like Christmas ornaments. I can help.
Beautiful pics and children!
Found it: http://partiesandholidays.blogspot.com/2009/07/pinkalicious-play-date.html – this should give you some great pink ideas (I love the girls all wearing pink – so cute)!
http://partiesandholidays.blogspot.com/search/label/Cupcakes%20and%20Cakes has pink cupcake toppers.
What a fun party!
lots of tulle, pink 12 x12 cardstock for placemats – your kids could make glittery, swirly paterns on them before the party, balloons are cheap and make a big impact, martha stewart has big pink paper pom poms at Michael’s here (do you have Michael’s?) get pink butcher paper (from a teacher supply store?) and make a pink ‘carpet’ leading up to the front door, ask kids to come wearing pink
food: strawberries, strawberry milk, pink lemonade with pink straws, strawberry marshmallows, strawberry/cherry cupcakes frosted pink – you can use edible glitter to make them really sparkly and those silver nonpareils, red food coloring will be your best friend 🙂
for crafts: i’d do snowflakes and stars – those are even supposed to be sparkly – if you did gold or silver they’d seem more birthday-y than christmas-y maybe? silver/gold pipe cleaners and pony beads, glitter on cut out snowflakes – you could pre-make them, we’ve done snowflakes at our house with glue and string that are really fun – kinda messy, probably depends on how many kids?
I’ll try to keep thinking…I LOVE planning my kiddos’ birthday parties! I always wanted to do a pink party for my oldest but she outgrew pink before we got around to that particular theme 🙂
For a princess party one year, I put magic fairy dust (glitter mixed with …I don’t know what it’s called – almost cellophane confetti?)…into baby food jars. I painted the lids with metallic paint and attached a cute poem as part of the party favors…hope that helps – sounds super fun!
I don’t have any craft ideas b/c I’m not the best at it but at Garden Ridge they have an entire isle of pink sparkly christmas ornaments for cheap. I’m thinking party favors. Just a thought.
oh how i love those eyes of bailey’s! and that sweet sweet bottom lip scar! she is one unique, sweet girl! you are so lucky!
Pink! My favorite color…what a cute birthday idea. Check out this website…
http://www.birthdaypartyideas.com/html/color_party.html They usually have really good ideas 🙂
Glad you had a great day! My 1 year old has those same footed PJs. We call them our “Monkey Jams.” Love them because they are soft and warm.
I agree, footed jammies are the best! That’s one of my favorite things about having a baby in the house again… the return of the footed sleepers. You can’t really get away with them once the kiddos are potty trained. Great pictures of your sweeties!
and a very, very happy (belated!! sorry!!) birthday!!!
“Fancy Nancy” (you may have noticed her at Target) is super pink and sparkly!
