About Me

My photo
Mysteries, polka dots, California Rolls, TJ Maxx, cozy blankets, rainy days and getting the first spoonful of peanut butter out of the jar make me smile. Spiders, rude people, cold fingers and toes, baby leashes, people that don't wrap their packages before going to the Post Office, poison ivy and Math (pretty much all of it) make me want to scream. My perfect day would be spent with my wonderful husband and sweet girls- watching movies in our jammies! Of course, having the movie theater to ourselves would be great, too. Please pass the popcorn and M&M's.:) I am saved by the grace of God. He is my constant companion and hears my every prayer. What a blessing! I'd love to hear from you!

Full House and a SALE!

We had the cutest full house last night!

Katie celebrated her 8th birthday!

The girls modeled the new headbands they made...

They called themselves the Headband Club.:)

Hot glue attached at the bottom of the band...

Then wrap the ribbon/yarn around and around! Every so often
add a drop of hot glue to secure. Fun and easy! Perfect Christmas
craft for kids.:)

Even Ruby wore her pajamas to the Slumber Party!

The girls were all so precious. Such a joy to host!

Even the dolls (in the chair) behaved themselves.:)

The girls loved playing speed games! Set up game stations- We had
4 as there were 8 girls. Set the timer for a certain time (we used 7 minutes) and then play to see who wins. Rotate to another station. This way the girls get to
play with different partners and also play all the games. At the end, the
winner(s) are the ones that won the most total games!

Gandalf liked being with all the dolls.:)

The games we played in speed games were- Candyland, Chutes and Ladders...

My Little Pony memory game and Bird Bingo!

As the girls arrived, Jeff painted their nails-

and then they created their own pizza masterpieces-

for dinner in the dining room!

Tinkerbell and friends joined us for "Happy Birthday".

We started our new guest book. Do you have one? Charming.

The goodie bags were colorful washclothes filled with lotion, lip
gloss and a brush. They looked like wrapped pieces of candy! I love
giving gifts that are useful and fun.


Here is a close-up of the headbands, in case you would like to make some.

Some of the girls even hot glued buttons on them. Super cute!

The headbands were 3/$1 at the Dollar Tree.:)

Including these pictures...

Because...

they make me smile!:)

Hi Lori
Katie's party looked wonderful. I love the headbands they made, so pretty. It was good to see Amanda helping out there organizing all the fun games. I think you will be ready for a rest now!
