I had every intention of sharing something for Kid Friendly Friday, and I actually had something to share, but birthday preparations are taking the top of the priority list for me! I had so much fun tonight (Thursday) making all of the little "extra touches", but you'll just have to wait until the party. Remember...I like to keep things a secret.
After a successful trip to Winco earlier in the day (with kids even!), I was feeling good about getting things crossed off the list. We'll be having a "build your own sandwich" bar with veggies, fruit, and chips. But the real reason I went to Winco instead of just down the street to Safeway was the bulk candy! I picked up some fun bright colored goodies to help along with my "sweetness" theme.
Later in the evening, I headed to the Dollar Tree in hopes that I might find the perfect party favor and I came away smiling! Look at what I found! Do those giant bubble wands not just scream LOLLIPOPS! Just wait until I transform them. And how cute are those lollipops?? 6 for $1.00!! How can you beat that? Can't wait to show you the special touch I put on these, too.
I tried to catch up on some blogs throughout the day, but I failed in my attempt, so if you haven't seen me in awhile, just know I'm trying to make my rounds! I've got birthday party on the brain, so all my time and energy is being chaneled into that.
And, of course...a little time spent with these cuties does a momma good!
This little man is definitely all boy with his rocks and trucks.
I loved watching him intently play.
Mikayla & Ellie are best buds!
Seriously, are they not the cutest little girls?
And, finally before I hit the pillow...I had the biggest scare tonight when I went to get on my computer and realized I couldn't find ANY of my documents or pictures. I started crying. No, seriously, I did. All of that lost?? My knight in shining armor (as always) pulled me out of my emotional state and found everything that was missing. For some reason our computer decided to start over like we had just gotten it and now everything's all out of whack. Hey, I'll take a little "out of whack" as long as I have my pictures. Yes, we back our computer up, but I think it had been awhile, so there would have been some lost memories (and lots of tears). Guess what we're doing tonight? Yep, backing this bad boy up. I'm not going through that heart ache again!
you don't hear from me again!
