Jackson’s Minecraft Birthday Party

Jackson’s Minecraft Birthday Party

Jackson turned 8 last Friday! It seems impossible, but it’s true. He wanted a Minecraft birthday party at the gym at which the kids take swimming lessons. Now, I know nothing about Minecraft, so thank God for the Internet! Pinterest was my friend. There aren’t any commercially available Minecraft party supplies, so I was going … Continue reading

Cassie’s Doc McStuffins Birthday Party

A few people have actually asked me why I haven’t posted pictures from Cassie’s Doc McStuffins birthday party. This post is for those people, especially Kirstin. As this was a Doc McStuffins party, the colors were pink and purple. I made doctors’ kits for the 5 and under guests. These were baby wipes containers, spray … Continue reading

Party Politics: Toddler Edition

No, this isn’t a post about the Republicans holding their breaths ’til they get their way. This is a post about Cassie’s 2nd Birthday Party.

Cassie’s First Birthday Party

Cassie turns one (1!) on October 25, but we had her party on October 21. I went a little nuts. Due to some bad luck, she never got a baby shower.

Will the Birthday Ever End?

This was a busy weekend. On Friday night, I had a Moms’ Night Out at the Olive Garden. On Saturday morning and afternoon, we attended the funeral of my Uncle Lowell. Today, we had Jack’s birthday party. The date had been chosen to accommodate a few specific people, which had the effect of not accommodating … Continue reading

Happy New Year!

Happy New Year! I know, it’s about time, right? The holidays were busy busy busy, and we all got sick, and now we’re back in add-on mode. We were supposed to go to an adults-only party this New Year’s Eve, but our neighbor and baby-sitter got sick. It was probably our fault too. So, we … Continue reading

Soccer Party

Jack’s soccer party was this afternoon. He got his very first trophy! There’s really not all that much to say… One of the coaches, Patrick, is also a good friend of ours. (I hope he’s available to coach next year.) He had something really nice and positive to say about each kid and the other … Continue reading

Super Bowl Pictures!

Pittsburgh won the Super Bowl! And here are the pictures from Gus & Jenn’s party. Jack was very well behaved, and really liked being able to yell, clap, and dance without anyone telling him to be quiet.
