The Magic Begins

A freshly-baked cake is cooling on the counter, and the house is full of excitement this morning. Emma and Mary Ashley are tracing handprints and drawing balloon bouquets and rainbows. Carson and Christian are blowing up balloons and helping me with special surprises. This can only mean one thing.

The birthday season has begun!

Today is Joe's birthday, and we are hoping good weather will allow us to celebrate outside tonight. Look for details of our family night over the next few days.

I will also be sharing photos of recent family celebrations in upcoming posts. My nephew Jonathan and niece Kadence both monkeyed around for their birthdays this year, and I know you will love the creative ideas my sister and sister-in-law came up with to carry out their themes. And my mind is already spinning with ideas for the children's upcoming birthdays over the next few months.

So light the candles, and make a wish.

The birthday season is here!

Happy Birthday to Joe! Hope it's the best one yet!

And I can't wait to see your party ideas. You always have such clever ones, Melissa! Love those polka dot cones in the fabulous colors. They are such fun. Can't wait how they were used.

Love to you and yours...
