Paisley's Party Fun

After our last few errands finished today, I pretty much have all of Paisley's B-day party covered. We are having a small gathering in our backyard this time. No more big parties, or festivities. After last years drama with having to switch parks on a moments notice- I am cutting out all factors and having a small party here. Just a few of my closest friends, and a pool or two for the kiddos. This years theme (even thought it may be small, there is always a theme!) is "Sweets & Treats" We've got cupcakes, popsicles, make your own sundaes, a candy jar bar, you name it- if it is sweet, we've got it. :) The candy bar has more treat like things vs. actual sweets, pretzels, popcorn, cookies, taffy..... okay, there are a few sweets!

I am actually pretty excited for all of it- it should be really fun! For decorations, I put together terra cotta pots that have a styrofoam ball in it, with a gigantic loli-pop sticking out of it, covered with gum drops- then pretend ice cream cones filled with marshmallows, then covered in a napkin (to look like a real ice cream) as a decoration, fruit loops as confetti, and borrowed hand made giant loli- pops for the backyard. WHEW- I am tired just typing it. Overall I am pretty excited for the smallness of it, but the quality of it. Should be really cute!

People keep asking me what she wants for her B-day, and to be honest- I have NOOOO idea. The kid has everything. Really. She has too much clothes (Yes, I really just admitted that) too many toys.... I don't know. Anyone have any good ideas for what a 3 year old would want or "need" ?

Your blogs are sooooo cute! I really miss hangin' out with you two. I am really looking forward to P's party but I am hoping Cody will be better by then - she has a pneumonia right now (right after an ear infection)! I feel so bad for her - oh yeah, and her cough is starting to sound like croup! Anyways, I'm pretty sure she is slowly getting better =) Gift Ideas for P - College Fund Baby!!! (oh yeah, and a small toy to open) hahaha!
Love ya,
