Today is Roo's birthday party! I got 9 balloons and scattered them throughout my (tiny) living room. Plus, one spider man ballon (for good luck). This will be the first party that I'm jn charge of keeping the kids entertained (a friend, Marvelous Marvin, kept the kids busy at Roo's last real party.) I hope the crafty thing that I have planned isn't too 'young'. My son wanted to do it so I hope all the other kids enjoy it. I bought plain white cardboard boxes at Paper Source and the kids will decorate them. I will start by talking about what they think they want to be when they get older. What their hopes/dreams are. These boxes will be a special place for them to put their most important things (I will give them ideas.) They can decorate it with their current interests (I have mode podge, decorative papers, stickers, etc). They can also choose to decorate it at their house (I know there will be at least one boy who won't be interested in crafting.)
One of ds's major interest is music. Rock music. So after we are done with the boxes, the kids will get to jam. We have instruments so the kids can try them all out (or they can bring their own.) I'll take photo's of each child and either print it out for them to take or email it (depends on how much ink I have left!).
Then we eat. Phew!
Will post pics on my blog this evening.
Maia- Omg, I thought that pic was from when you were younger!! You look amazing! I'm almost 45 but definitely look my age.
