My birthday banner. I should have ironed it before I hung it up. It looks wrinkly. No matter - the kids don't care.
Carolin's '5' shirt. I gave up on the dress that was causing me significant problems and did a simple shirt instead. She's quite happy with it. See the "Birthday Girl' ribbon? We've used that over and over. Just from the Dollar Store but so appreciated.
Zachary's shirt, which you had a peak of already.
And now for keeping it real. The photo of the decorations my kids made for the big day.
2. Dishes. They're air drying. :-)
3. Messy coffee/tea shelf.
4. Lots of special papers on the fridge.
5. Lunch bags needing lunches in them for tomorrow.
6. My list and another photo. And Deanna, who can't resist brightening up a photo.
So yeah, not Pinterest Perfect. Not even close. But it's real and love lives here. I'm just posting this to encourage you all. You need not plan your kids' parties for months to get it perfect. Just have some good food, good decorations :-), some cupcakes a few presents and some friends and it will be a great time!
I hope to post again on Friday with some details....
