Birthday Party!

Patrick's 1/2 birthday party was wonderful! All the kids sang Happy Birthday, before eating their cupcakes . . . it was SO cute! Patrick had such a cute 'lil smile . . . eating it up!

I asked Patrick's teachers, if we could get a picture with them both . . . and of course they obliged. They're such terrific women, to put up with a buttload of screaming preschoolers . . . ALL day! It was so sweet, because when I started to count (to take the picture) . . . Patrick put his arms around both of them! Talking about pulling at your heartstrings?! AWWW . . .

Once I got home, I made a 3"x3" thank you note for the teachers. I just really appreciated them allowing me to come back for the party and snap a bunch of pictures! The class had already sang Happy Birthday to Patrick, but because I came back . . . the teachers had the class sing it again, so I could hear it. How sweet!

Jeri taught us this technique, at her last Make-n-Take . . . with Future (floor wax) and PearlEx. It gives it an iridescent color to it . . . beautiful when you move it back and forth. This picture doesn't do it justice though. The stamp set used: Dear Friend stamp set, a Level I hostess set. You can find PearlEx at Hobby Lobby . . . don't bother with Michael's and Joann's. They'll give you the 'deer in headlight' look, when you talk about it! We're going to make this at the May workshop.

I swear . . . like Grandfather . . . like Grandson! Patrick's barn door is open! Our Mom, when they lived in Chicago, had to put a note on their back door . . . to remind Dad to zip his zipper before he left the house! :o) GEEZ!

Jenny and Laurie rented a Wishes of the Heart (a local scrapbook place) for the weekend . . . along with an 'ole high school buddy of Jenny's (Debbie) and some of Debbie's friends. I'm going by tomorrow night, after work, to drop off some stuff for Jen . . . I'll try and snap a picture of all of them having fun! I'm positive the gals will have a great time!

Hope you're having a wonderful day! Thanks for stopping by my craft room!
