Great day for a party!

I am so happy! It is a beautiful day here and that means that I can have Ian's birthday party outside :)

We are doing a barnyard/farm theme so yesterday I went to town and picked up everything farm animal related I could find. AND I had the best find ever! I found cowboy hats at the $ store!!! I was really hoping to have cowboy hats for the kids but didn't want to spend a fortune on them................I love the $ store ;-)

Last night I painted a cardboard barn red and right now I should be baking cakes (btw-the amount I end up spending on supplies to make the b'day cakes I could probably buy 2!). I am making "wanted" posters for the kids and we are having a scavenger hunt in the hay. It should be fun.............did I tell you how happy I am that it is nice outside today?


A few days ago Ian and Emma were playing dress-up and put on some old Halloween costumes. I had them lay on the floor so I could get some pics without all the playroom toys (and mess) behind them. They were laughing so hard, I love it when they play together and get along like this......................

Have a great weekend! Hopefully you get to enjoy some of this sunshine too!
