Mad Science Birthday

I have been so excited to share our super Science Birthday Experiment–I mean “party”.  The kids had so much fun with this! And it was educational! Win win! This makes a great birthday party, or decorate it a little spookier and it makes a great Halloween party! We set the tone for the party with […]

Under the Sea Mermaid Birthday Party

A couple of weeks ago I go a call from my neighbor on a Wednesday night. She was wondering if I had any ideas for her daughter’s birthday party THAT SATURDAY! She had sent out an evite weeks before, but hadn’t gotten around to any party planning yet. Of course, I had ideas–it’s My Insanity–I […]

How to make a 3D Train Cake

I had a request for more details about the 3D cake I made for my son’s 2-year-old Train Birthday Party last year. I should clarify before I start, that I am not a trained baker (wait until I show you his 3-year-old birthday cake fail). I just get big ideas for my kids’ cakes and […]

Terrific Train Birthday Party

I’ve had a little break from birthday parties, but there are a couple right around the corner now. Before my son celebrates his 3rd birthday, it might be a good idea to blog his 2nd birthday. It hit at a really busy time last year and I just didn’t get a chance to get the […]

Party Party Prizes

One of the great things about blogging is getting to connect with amazing women who share your passions. Today I’ve called on four of them and they are offering up fabulous party  prizes with the winner of our Party Party. I haven’t met Do in real life, yet, but I have the other three, and […]

A Tangled Celebration

My daughter (who has a thing for hair) was heart-set on a Rapunzel birthday. Using some great internet resources, a bit of imagination, and a lot of friends and family, we threw a Tangled adventure for the birthday girl and her friends. Where to begin? How about with my little Rapunzel herself and the gorgeous […]

Camping Birthday Adventure

My son has had some pretty cool birthday parties in the past. While the robot, pirate and rocket parties were huge successes, I wanted this year to be a little different. Partly because the thought of a dozen 7-year-old boys wreaking havoc in my home wasn’t appealing, and partly because my husband begged me to simplify a […]

Flashback Friday: Back to School for the big girls

We took apples to the teachers today (we really did–more on that soon). Tomorrow means Dr.’s appointments and haircuts. We are trying to check everything off of our list for Monday when the kids head back to school. I have been worried about getting ready for school and forgot that many moms are anxiously awaiting […]

Life is a Highway–Car’s Party Post

Last year, around this time, my friend, Jennifer, asked me for some ideas for a car-themed birthday she was throwing for her 4-yr.-old son. That inspired this post, full of fun “High-octane” party ideas. She ended up throwing a fabulous party that my kids and I got to attend, and I took lots of pictures […]
