Let it snow!

Wow. We have been hit with a CRAZY BLIZZARD. I can't remember the last time we've had this kind of snow. People are being bussed off the highways because all of the Interstates are shut down. Nuts! I shot this picture of the house. The garland is about to blow off the door. This Christmas will definitely be WHITE.

Hope everyone stays warm and safe--

Nine days, no presents purchased...gulp.

Only 14 days until the big day...are you ready?
You'll notice there are no wrapped gifts under our tree. We are waaaaaay behind.

Carnival Revisited

I never posted pictures from Riley's carnival! Bad momma... So, if you've read my previous entries then you know that I spent about a week-and-a-half on the party planning. That's some kind of record for lack of preparedness, pretty sure. But, it came together quickly and I think it turned out pretty great. It was so fun to have kids running around and food and friends and family. Loved it all.

Here are few highlights (sorry for the random order--it is so hard to upload pics in Blogger!):

***Welcome to the carnival***

***The Details***

Party Favors:

Overview of the room
(we pushed all the furniture against the walls to make the room big and open)
Count the Beans!
This was for the adults at the party.
Total amount? 1122 beans...Riley's birthdate!

The food:
Hot Dogs, Chips, Licorice, Caramel Apples, and Lots of Sodas!

More party favors.
Each kiddo had a bag with his/her name on it!

Lots of goodies at the "Refreshments" table!

Backyard Photo Booth:

Bullseye Game:

Cotton Candy
(we repackaged CC from the store and added some custom tags)

Popcorn Cupcakes
(actually marshmallows in yellow food coloring!)

Beverage Station:

Riley's Circus Peanuts
(Again, repackaged and with custom tags)

"Thank you for coming to my party!"
I glued Riley's picture to big rainbow-colored lollipops!

The amazing cake! My mom is a flippin' cake genius.
She did ALL of this, including forming the animals from fondant. She's awesome!!

And here's Riley enjoying a couple of his toys, post-party:

Until next year...
