I thought I'd check in before there was an APB put out on me. Yes, I'm still around, just not online as much. I decided to put more effort into my house and family, and it has been going really well.
I also have several parties in the works in the next few months. (My family - we like parties!) The first is the very important Gabriella's 5th Birthday Party next week, which is a small affair, but quite exciting. She decided on a "pink poodle" theme - I'm sure the little boys at the party will be thrilled. Then the following week my adorable nephew turns one! Luckily, I only have to show up to this one.
The next party is the most elaborate, and I'm completely in charge. I'm throwing a formal Titanic dinner party. Because of all the other parties, I'm not holding it on the appropriate night (April 14th), but am pushing it back to the first weekend in May so that all invitees can attend. I'm serving a seven course meal. Everyone will be assigned a "character", and there will be some background given on everyone. There is even talk of a skit - I'll keep you updated on that one.
Then of course my Little Man will be three, and I will be throwing the required train party for that one. Oh he loves his trains - you have no idea. I can't believe my baby is going to preschool in the fall!
Then if that isn't enough, we are throwing a summer pirate themed party later in June. My brother and I are in charge of the "treasure hunt" for that one, which will take participants all over town in a race to see who can do it the fastest (without traffic violations, of course.) It will be a blast!
There are actually more parties planned beyond that - a camping trip for sure, and who knows what else. I think we enjoy the planning of the parties just as much if not more than the actual party. We should go into business perhaps - it might help finance our get-togethers!
