Practically Perfect, Seriously

Winds in the east, mist coming in,  
Like somethin' is brewin' and bout to begin. 
Can't put me finger on what lies in store, 
But I fear what's to happen all happened before

We had another party today, this time it took place at 17 Cherry Tree Lane. 


 I was slightly over the moon when Bekah said she wanted a Mary Poppins party! We started planning about eight months ago or more.



It was like Pier1 knew what our plans were when they decided to release this adorable carousel cupcake holder a few months ago.


I had been holding onto an old Golden Book of Mary Poppins, the cover was missing, the spine was a mess, but the artwork was amazing. I knew I would use it for something eventually.



 She didn't want a shirt for her party this year, she was adamant to have a Mary Poppins dress. I used the same pattern as the Cinderella dress she wore on her third birthday.



Sister opt'd for an adorable shirt made my friend Elizabeth at Bailey Boo's Vinyl and More.


I didn't have any outdoor games and activites like I have had in years passed. They did a little Bert Chalk art and colored Mary Poppins coloring sheets while watching the movie.



We took our traditional family pictures.


I had a shirt made too...coffee makes me practically perfect - so true, so true!


This one from five years ago popped up on Facebook today as well!






Bekah had a blast and gave the part a big thumbs up!



I gave kites and sidewalk chalk as party favors. I wasn't sure that the kites would get used, but I was so mistaken because this girl "flew" one out front right away.

So much Sugar was Consumed! 


It was Practically Perfect in Everyway!

Now to plan for next year...the request is already in - a Halloween Party with Costumes! I love having an October kid!

Morgan's Minnie Mouse Birthday

Well about 18 months after the fact, but here is Morgan's 3rd Birthday Party! And really her first actual party for her birthday...thankfully my father in-law captured a bunch of pictures for me!




This was a super fun theme to work with and I had a blast making mini!



Coloring was a super easy activity for this age. 



Chatting with friends and family!



The super embarrassing part for her...she can't stand be sung to





And, yes, I made the entire family dress in theme...even Dad. That is just what I do!


We finished with bubbles and more conversations outside.


Okay, Mom guilt is officially over and I have now posted EVERYONE's birthday parties! Now onto Bekah's 6th which will be Mary Poppins and Morgan's 5th which will be Unicorns. And I am happy to say I have already started collecting the decor! Yes, my children normally request their theme a day or so after their last party.

Morgan's Vintage Puppy Party

As I was posting pictures from all our recent parties Mommy guilt kicked in because I never posted pictures from Morgan's 4th Birthday. Actually, I don't think I did her 3rd either. Yikes, you may have to sit through another party post tomorrow.



Morgan's 4th Birthday was on of my favorites and led me to collect ceramic dog figures for months prior to the party.







And, yes, I sewed Morgan a dress to match her party because that is just what I do!



We had a puppy Adoption. 


And painted puppies to take home.

Of course Morgan's was purple. 

And, of course, Bekah painted a Cat instead of a dog.


The, it was on to cake!


She still gets all embarrassed when people sing Happy Birthday. 





She loved opening presents her friends had picked out for her and then it was onto the piƱata which has become a tradition for all Littles' parties at our house. 


I am about six months late with this post, but it's now done! I really do hope to post more "everyday" life over the next year.
