…and I’m crafty too!

4 Aug

*sigh!* My little man turned the BIG 5, and what better way to celebrate a Summer baby than by having a “Dinosaur Pool Party!” He changed his mind a lot about the theme. At first, it was Cars2, then it became Power Rangers, then he finally agreed to those prehistoric favorites. Now, I’m that mom who goes all out when it comes to celebrating their spawn’s day of birth. I’m the one who’s balling as we’re singing “Happy Birthday”, realizing that “my baby is growing up!” *wiping tear* I’m also the procrastinator who waits until the night before the party to get everything done. I decided to create my own decorations, assemble a most fabulous candy/sweets buffet and make the giveaways! Who has the time, you ask? Not me, but I’m gonna sure as hell try!!

Yep, I made that banner! It could have been nicer and a little bigger, but no one even noticed it…the banner, that is! The kids and I cut out the dino pictures, but when it came time to hang everything up, everyone went missing…

I got a few chuckles since the hubby noticed that my “sweets table” looked more like a memorial table…kinda morbid, I know…

By the end of the party, I was indeed pooped, but nonetheless pleased with the turn out. The birthday boy was extremely thankful and I as usual, vowed to NEVER do this again…until the next kids’ party, of course!

    You’re cute! I wish I’d learn how to cook and be that kind of mom too when I get a child (but get married first, of course). I do understand why your hubby said it looked like a memorial table though. *giggles* But it’s the thought that counts. And I’m sure the food tasted heavenly. :))
