Another one of those whirlwind seasons. It really was calm for the six weeks of Dan's recovery compared to this. We have had birthdays, a wedding, a funeral, three sets of visitors, another art show all in the last three weeks. Did I mention we are helping plant a new church in town, and next week is the launch? lol I am in constant fifth gear it seems these days. I know I have another two busy weeks in front of me and then perhaps the calm after the storm will come :) Then hopefully I can get to my completely neglected garden. Although I still am enjoying all its last fling beauty from a distance... when I don't look too close :)
Here is one day during the last three weeks were I had a little overflow of Nana creativity. Meg asked if we could just have a simple family birthday party for Eden at my house this year. She is in a 700 sq ft. apartment with two babies and in the middle of building a house. That is another story...
So I said sure. She warned me...keep it simple. When I went to the grocery store that day, the Dollar store just beckoned my attention and I thought...well maybe I will just run in there real quick and see what I can do for under ten dollars to decorate for the family birthday. Needless to say I was quickly inspired :)
It turned into a fairy princess theme. Notice the butterfly wands in the vase, and the fairy wings on my chandelier.
All ready for the party when in walked the birthday fairy princess!
She was so thrilled with her party!
of coarse little baby sis was invited...my adorable Sweet Pea
I can hardly believe my Eden is three!
one other princess joined us for birthday cake
The evening ended with some wonderful entertainment from the hula girls :)
