It's SWEET in Candyland!

15 January 2012
My youngest daughter turned 4 this weekend!!!  Happy Birthday, sweet Allison!  A few weeks ago I asked her want kind of party she wanted.  After giving it some thought, she answered me, "Ummmm ... a singing party with a new swimming pool and a giraffe that spits out water."  Hmmmmmm ...

Well, giraffes that spit out water are hard to find this time of year, so we settled on a Candyland theme.  A perfectly sweet party for my perfectly sweet girl.  I spent the whole weekend preparing, but she is so absolutely worth it!  Here's a pic from our sweet day today.

Happy Sunday!!!  We're on a sugar high here - fun times!

  7. Happy birthday, sweet Alison . . . happy birthday to you! And what a special day for you, too, mom . . . savor every minute.

  8. Thank-you so much, ladies! I do enjoy throwing a party ... and with three young ones, it seems kids' parties are all I get a chance to plan. I finally got the girls to sleep after the sugar rush ... I'll bet they have "sweet dreams" tonight. :)

  9. So sweet, indeed! Happy birthday to the birthday girl!
