Planning Birthday Parties

i love it
love. love. love. it. 

and we are getting ready to have another 
the big

and looking back, this was one of my most favorite
it was rainbow themed
for my youngest who was turning 7

and it was 
a scrapbook party 

we did paper bag scrapbooks

here's how it went
just in case you are curious
cuz it was super easy to put together

i had pre cut patterned paper into squares
nothing measured
(all from the same packet)
just cut different sizes

i also printed words/sayings on white card stock
and cut them out too
again no measuring 
just cutting

so at each spot 
each girl had
paper bag scrapbook pre done (super easy)
scrap, pre cut patterned paper
a bag of pictures of them and the bday girl and them with friends
and a glue stick

they put that thing together for over an hour

i also had a little table that some 
embellishments on it

it was so fun to watch the kids create

now on the my oldest
it's fun for me

if you have any questions feel free to ask
i would love to help
scrapbook parties are super fun
and each quest goes home with a great project

and i truly believe this could go for 7 year olds
all the way to the teens

off to plan the next on

Look Out Weekends, Here we Come, Because

weekends were made for fun

my hubby has started private pitching lessons
again and we were happy to tag
along this saturday

it was a beautiful day
the shine was shining
we took the coast home
had some ice cream 
and played at the park 

they played on the monkey bars
clearly they could touch
but they didn't care

the played on the swings

and they played tag

they laughed

and laughed

and laughed

and because the weather was SO beautiful
why not turn on the jacuzzi and play
for hours

with buckets
and balls

what a great weekend
hanging with dad while he works
enjoying the drive home


hope your weekend was a good one
