After months of living in CHAOS (Can’t Have Anyone Over Syndrome – Fly Lady), I decided enough was enough and it was time to get back to having fun parties. To celebrate Father’s Day, we invited over my dad, my brother and his family, and another family to have a good ole fashioned man-food...

Sorry I haven’t gotten any posts out this week.   Sandy came through and while it was milder than expected (in our area), we lost power Monday eve. Sorry I don’t have menu plan this week — we will be eating frozen, now thawed whatever in the freezer… but here’s a little of what...

A Shish Kabob Party Fit for a Caveman

We like to make shish kabobs at our house, but my kids will frequently complain about one or more of the items included on the skewer. When I saw an idea online for a Build Your Own Shish Kabob Party, I thought it would be a fun way to celebrate the end of summer. ...

The Seven Year Old Clone Wars Birthday Party

This post is several weeks overdue … our summer has been so busy, it’s been hard to find time to write. I made the mistake of doing big birthday parties when my kids were little, and I’ve been trying to scale them back ever since.  This year, I told my boy that he could...

Snowy Pumpkin Party

What a crazy weather weekend!   Snow in October was definitely a first for us. We spent the day snuggled up inside/frantically cleaning to make the house presentable for the pumpkin carving party planned for the evening.

A Three Year Old Birthday Party – Down on the Farm

We had so much fun celebrating Adam’s third birthday, I meant to come back and talk about the farm party. My poor third-born  suffers from third-childitis, meaning I didn’t have as much energy to put the effort I normally do into birthday parties.   I wanted to do a farm theme because he loves his...

Sock Hop

Wendy’s elementary school has a big “dance” in the winter.  It’s a sock hop and the kids dress up 50s style and basically run crazy.  There is some dancing, but mostly it’s running around wild.  They have food in the cafeteria for sale (pizzas, bbq, ice cream) and a DJ run dance in the...

The PYO Pottery Party in Review

Wendy turned six a little before Thanksgiving, and to celebrate, we had a birthday party for her and some kindergarten friends at a local Paint-Your-Own Pottery place.  In years past, I have done elaborate themed parties, both at home and in rented spaces, and I was ready to take it down a notch.   The...
