Charm is deceptive & beauty is fleeting: but the woman who fears the Lord is to be praised.

Birthday prep has officially begun!

Party planning is officially underway!
This year, Alex has requested a carnival party. It has been sooo fun to put together. My days of big party planning for Alex are almost to an end so I am trying to make the most of it. Alex gets to have large themed parties up until his 5th year. After that, it is his choice until his double digit. By his choice I mean that he can choose to go to Six Flags for the day or go to Fire Mountain...and invite a friend or two. That is the plan anyway, we will see if it actually goes down like that!
I just love to plan his parties! I usually start in October with the ordering of goodies and the sketching of cakes and games. This year, I made a birthday notebook. I put clippings and printouts of things that looked like they would be super fun. Now I am in the process of narrowing the ideas down and pulling everything together.
Fun Fun!!
It's a Carnival Galore, Alex is Four!

exciting!! I am eager to see the pictures from Alex's party. Y'all plan the coolest parties.

Dakota always seems to pick out something that I have to search high and low for. Like Buzz Lightyear.
