Wesley and River’s Birthdays…

Saturday I took 5 kids (Thomas, Molly, River, and two of River’s friends) to Cherry Hill (a nearby water park) from 10:30-1:30 by myself. It was a lot of work…but, I think they ended up having a great time. They were mad that I didn’t want to go with them to the lazy river or anything. But there was no way I was keeping track of five non-swimmers myself! So we stayed in the pirate ship area. River got some fun gifts from her friends and we ate Hello Kitty cupcakes and lunchables from the store. Normally I make food and treats…but I just wasn’t up to it.IMG_5914 IMG_5917 IMG_5919 IMG_5923 IMG_5925 IMG_5927 IMG_5928———————

Family Party:

This was the least planned party I have ever thrown. I ran to the store for cupcakes and balloons 30 minutes before and stopped at KFC for dinner on the way back. The plates and such I bought on clearance a couple months back and forgot about them until I got back home with the food. Then I threw everything up really fast.

I forgot to give them to her at Christmas. But it made it easy to shop for her for her birthday! She got a Hello Kitty blanket and sheet set from Grandma and Grandpa Speck. They watched on FaceTime while Wesley ate his cake and River open her gifts. Deric’s parents got her a bag of Hello Kitty items. She loved it all.SONY DSC SONY DSC SONY DSC SONY DSC SONY DSC SONY DSCI¬†took it away before he ate too much. I couldn’t stand the thought of him eating that much of the food coloring and sugar. But, it made a few fun photos!SONY DSC SONY DSCI think everyone was quite satisfied. :)

About stacey

I am the Mom of two young, rambunctious girls, a curious little boy, and a wee little man who is bursting with joy for life. I just wanted to do something for myself that allowed me to harness the magical moments of being a Mom. (A job that sometimes feels thankless, misunderstood, and considered easy by those that haven't done it.) I wanted to be more positive by looking more closely at the good things that happen every day via photos and my thoughts.
