Christmas table

This year I decided to do a Winter Wonderland theme for my Christmas table. I hung snowflakes above the table, and glittered some trees added some candle sticks. It was sparkly and pretty and fast and easy!

Hollands One!

She was the cleanest eating the cake out of all the kids.

Reading her books! She loves her books.

One of her presents were books and she laughed when opened it . It was so funny. She didn't care about opening the other presents. She just wanted the books.

I didn't go "all" out like I usually do for parties. I had YW stuff and Super Saturday stuff so this was all that I did. Instead of streamers I glued rhinestones on ribbon, different size rhinestones and all different lengths of ribbon. They turned out really pretty. I almost don't want to take them down.

Owens Preschool Halloween Party

Preschool was at my house this week so I decided to do a Halloween Party. Here's what I did, I didn't spend a lot of time on it like I usually do for parties.

I made this spider plate. (you can't really tell but it turned out cute, I'll have to take a better picture)

These candles I saw on line so I decided to try them. Its just toilet paper rolls and Hot glue then painted and put flicker lights inside. They turned out pretty cool and they were really easy to make.

One of the games we played was "find the bugs in the brain guts." Some kids liked this one some wouldn't touch it.

Just more things I've made

Adam doesn't like these ones very much, he hates spiders!
These hurricans I made from the Dollar Store vases and candle sticks. I saw these on line but can't remember where.

Owens Birthday Party

A good friend of mine fit this in her busy life and painted this for me. Shes awesome!!! The kids loved it.

I made Woody goody bags

The gift area

"you saved our lives we are eternally greatful"

One friend said the table looked "professional" hahaha funny, not even close!!! but thanks anyways.

We finally were able to have Owens Birthday Party. It was CRAZY!!! Out of 14 kids that Owen invited 12 came. Drinks spilling on carpets, some wanted to play with toys instead of the birthday games and one kid got into the cup cakes before we sang Happy B-day! I finally got them to play "pin the tail on Bullseye" some had a hard time not peeking! lol. It was a lot of work but fun. Owen got lots of fun toys.

Weekend with the Leishmans

So while Mel was here last weekend we went to Green Bluff. It was a lot of fun. This particular spot we went to had lots to do and eat! There was a corn maze that led you to a castle, a pirate ship, fresh Carmel apples and cider, peddle go-karts, bean bag throw game, fresh carmel apples and cider, blow up slid, train rides, fresh Carmel apples and cider, and of course pumpkin pick'in oh and did I mention they had fresh Carmel apples and cider!!! yummm

the boys beating the girls

he thinks hes cool or something!

This race was kind of nerve racking because both Nash and Riley are very competitive!!! So when they decided they wanted to race each other we knew it wasn't going to end pretty because that would mean one of the competitive boys would have to loose! Of course we both wanted our own kid to win so we wouldn't have to deal with their lose. Riley won the first round so that made Nash want to go again of course.

Nash got to sit in the front of the Train next to the driver. Can you tell he was excited?

I knew that was coming the minute Paige asked me to take a picture of her poking out of the pigs mouth! They both ganged up on her!
