Amy, your Halloween costume changing sounds a lot like what goes on in my family. We have such a collection of costumes that each year each child can switch it up to their heart's content.
That is so cool about your greenhouse! I am impressed. (I'm always inpressed w/all you manage to accomplish!)
We just finished dd (6)'s birthday party. We had a backyard party w/some neighborhood kids. We did it up old school (lol!) - w/a cook out, sack races, three legged races, red rover, duck duck goose, etc. While the kids were eating on their own they initiated the telephone game, I'm going on a picnic, and wanna buy a duck. It was fun. Thank goodness the weather cooperated. We have a couple of kids in the neighborhood w/ less than involved parents. These kids showed up w/younger siblings in tow, dressed inappropriately for the weather, and gifts for dd of their own stuffed animals. It really broke my heart. But they all seemed to have fun and the kids are so loving & accepting that it went smoothly. Sometimes I really feel like the neighborhood mother - giving out warm clothes, feeding them all, encouraging them to put their shoes back on, etc.
OK, off to enjoy a few quiet moments.
Happy mama of four Wild Things
