I've decided I'm going to do a little research on the internet sometime this week. And it's really crazy that this idea would just pop into my head....but a friend of mine who use to cut my hair years ago....well, let's just say that she started her family a little earlier than I did and I remember her telling me one time that she was going to give a "Happy Birthday Jesus" party for her daughter and some of her daughter's friends. I don't remember what exactly Meredith had planned, but I'm going to do some research and see what I can come up with. If any of you out there have ever done something like this, email me and let me know. OH! And by the way! I'm looking for someone who can dress up like Raggedy Ann and entertain about eight kids and their parents. More on that at another time!
Alise has been invited to her first hayride and bonfire party! Her little friend, Addison, is having a Halloween hayride at her grandparent's house tomorrow night. We probably won't get to stay long because Alise will be tired after her gymnastics class, but I told Tiffany that we would try and come for a little while. My "gracious gesture" of making apple bread for her teachers just flew out the window, though, because I had planned to do that tomorrow night. I finished the trick-or-treat bags for her class this afternoon. There is a 40% chance of rain on Tuesday. I hope the rain is over by that evening!
And for those of you who are wondering how the baby doll cradle is coming, Wayne and I actually started sanding this afternoon! He is such a perfectionist about building and doing anything like this! I told him that it didn't have to look like a million bucks, but he said that we would have to prime it and sand it again before we actually painted it, and I was like, no, we don't! That's too much trouble! But he told me that that was the only way to insure that the paint would stick. Well, it looks like he has agreed to help me with the project (he did most of the sanding today while I chased Alise around in the yard) and so I guess I need to "submit" (Bill would be proud of me that his sermon hit home!) and let Wayne do what he thinks is best.
Ya'll have a good week!
