TGIF . . .

{Does anybody remember that back in the day! All I remember was Family Matters and Full House came on - I don't even remember what channel!?} Back to my post . . .

So, it has been one L-O-N-G week! Everybody has been suffering from a head cold - {including myself} - and much of nothing has gotten done around here. Currently, here is my table - this does not include my drying rack or the other table - which both are covered{!} . . .

description = "hot mess"

I've got to get some order going on around here - it is just too chaotic! My husband {thank the Lord!} is off this weekend and he has absolutely NO idea, but he has a major list of chores he MUST get finished this weekend! We are really trying to get ready for 2 - 2 year olds birthday party - Pirate style!!!

So, for fun - check out the invitations {and for all the lurking creeps - my address is removed!! Last thing I need is some Chester at my kids party!}
Kinda cheezy - huh? Who cares, love it for the kids!!! Here are the words . . .
You should be able to click on them and blow it up so you can see it to read it! Don't get to impressed - totally lifted these from somewhere on the web - I don't specifically remember where, because a bunch of folks had used them. So, every link I clicked on . . . there they were! It was the "burning bush" saying I needed to use them! I did change a few words {since I didn't find anything for a twins party!} So far, we have went somewhat big for all the kids first birthday - but poor Hudson has gotten the shaft the past couple of years! BUT he doesn't like big crowds {until now}, so I don't feel like he "really" lost out on anything!

We decided this year to go big - really obnoxious and big! Lonnie and I agreed that the birthday is for the kids so let's play it up. Unlike Christmas, where we keep it skinny! Just so you know, we give each kids only 3 gifts {hence 3 wise men gave Jesus only 1 gift each = 3 gifts} - Keeps the meaning of the season! Now, ol' Santa does bring one bigger gift {and stockings} because we couldn't leave that out either! We were determined to not have to out do last year or go broke trying to. Easy enough and a great lesson to boot! {that wasn't an original idea either!}

But again - Birthdays are a different story! That is their day so let the party begin!! So, while I'm busy with everything else, know I'll be planning a gargantuous party for Carson and Laws {which is in 22 days!} We got a lot to do - from burying booty in sand to naming our pirate ship!

Kim,

That is so sweet, I love the pirate letter!! I can't wait to hear how the party goes. I am sorry you all are sick, that is not fun and in the mist of all that you are a painting fool! YOu go girl!! I hope you feel better soon.

P.s. I totally thought of you when I saw that Ronald McDonald car! It would be so cute on canvas!

I am so glad that you have gotten tons of orders for the "BOO!" I had a dream last night that you did a new project for me...
Smaller canvases that spelled out laundry with cute pics...HMM!

This party sounds like so much fun! I wish I was a little kid ;)!

Thanks for your sweet thoughts, I am doing much better.

Hope you get "all" of your birthday stuff done in time!

I really like that idea for Christmas...only three gifts, and then Santa's big present. Really smart to keep it Seasonal, but with real meaning. I just told my hubby about it, and he liked it too. Aren't you so clever?!

P.S. love the pirate invite too!

Holy cow I remember TGIF it had Family Matters, Full House and a couple of other shows. If I remember correctly it was on ABC. LOL
