down the hole….

My mind is a little distracted these days……..but in a


even bryan is excited about what i have in mind for this….hard to believe Alice…..

i mean Lola….is turning 8.

I am going to throw this crazy idea of a tea party out back…under a tent {which i already own}…

lots and lots of mismatched chairs….around a bunch of mismatched tables.

Organized chaos.

Speaking of bryan {not that we were}….but it was a little wierd waking up this morning with fin next to me..

and no daddy to make breakfast for or bring coffee in bed to.

Fin and i just layed in bed snuggling…as today was the only morning i woke up

with him in bed next to me. Every night as i put him to bed…..he would say to me…

maybe tonight i will come up and sleep with you.

He never came.

Last night he finally did.

deep sigh…double gulp

The crew gets in tonight and we can not wait.

tick tock tick tock

Enjoy your day!

  8. I used to love the creative canvas of a children’s
    birthday party! From Buzz Lightyear to Harry Potter,
    a rainbow party to an angel party…..
    One year we had a party based on Lili and the Purple
    Plastic Purse…..All wonderful times!
    Now that my youngest is eleven, it is paintball and
    hot-tub and video games…..
    So, enjoy the cuddles with Fin ~
    and the creative b-day parties for Lola.
    Well, just enjoy it ALL!

  20. Hey!
    I had an Alice party for my 9-year-old in March this year. I was able to find little ceramic teacup pots from Michael’s (Canada) and included a packet of seeds for each of the girls. Michael’s also had neat little Alice paint books at that time too. But the teacup pots were great, they were my best find by far.

    Good luck! I’m anxious to see the photos of the party. I LOVE the invites you managed to find on Etsy. Fantastic.

    Kim 🙂

  29. Oh my gosh! I’ve TOTALLY been planning Gracie’s 7th bday party in July as Alice and wonderland! I have everything gathered together BUT the invites and was stumped. You rock! That invitation is genious. Yep, it’s been since I’ve stopped by. Sorry for abandoning our blogging relationship. To be honest, I’ve pretty much given up the whole hobby for the time being. I’m thinking once I get my life back I’ll be back in blogger mode. Who knows?
