Happy Birday Ke-che!

My little guy Christian, AKA "Ke-che" (how he pronounces it) is turning 2!! We're having a little family 4th of July party for his birthday and he is so excited. He is constantly talking about "baby's bir-day party," reciting the guest list and more importantly (hee hee) the menu: "Ice cream, beans (he loves beans) cheeseburgers, cake, pizza..." The funny part is he added in the pizza himself. We hadn't been planning on serving pizza but he brings it up every time so now I feel like maybe I should do one of those little personal ones for him. (Let's be honest, if there's time.)
Although it's a birthday party, since we're having it on the 4th, I figured we'd go red, white & blue with the decorations. Here's a little preview:

I thought you might enjoy seeing these adorable little plaster of paris flag holders my grandmother made for the table centerpieces. They're so easy to make & can be reused year after year. (Just put plaster of Paris inside disposable cups and make little holes up top for the flags to slip into once dry. When it's all dried, tear off the cup & add the flags!)

I hope everyone has a happy 4th of July!!!



ps- if you haven't already, check out the rug giveaway. Winner will be chosen Sunday night!

Hey Sweetie,

So sorry I missed your call yesterday! We keep missing each other. I was actually driving when you called and you know me I totally need to concentrate so I couldn't get it. Then I had a full of day of helping my SIL move in and wasn't done with that till around 11:30pm!

Ah!!!! I'm sure the birthday party will be great! How cute is he reciting the guest list and menu. Adorable!

I hope Ke-che :) has a wonderful birthday!!!

Take lots of pictures please!



PS I love how I just made my comment pretty much an email. Oh well.

I have just signed on today! I have beeen following but never really signed in. I saw your giveaway and had to officially sign in. We are finally doing an outdoor room and that would be Absolutely perfect. At any rate- my favorite smell is my kids right after their bath on a summer night. Outside you smell the fresh cut grass, barbeque, an array of flowers and then they come out all clean and ready for bed and it takes me back to when they were my little babies. Now my oldest boy is 7 and my twins (boy/girl) are 5. It makes me feel great!! Thanks for you posts- and blog. It is such a joy to watch what you do and see your ideas!

Happy Birthday to your sweet boy! I love it when they get so excited about their special day. My little one turns four this week (OMG 4!) and he has been making lists for months and months about the party, presents, guest list, and on and on. Precious, sweet boys!
