Miss Kate's Circus Birthday Party
So I happened upon these cute bags, masks, cupcake liners, and cards at Michael's dollar spot and then created her invitation on my own, a circus ticket. I found plates and napkins and a cute confetti paper table cloth at Target.
If you haven't read the blog, Hostess with the Mostest, it's a great place to generate ideas and find printables and such. I found this one and just went from there. The kids found the moustaches in the games at the pizza place...perfect! The teeth were hilarious, and we ordered the wax lips from Oriental Trading. The lip pictures crack me up. So fun.
I made the labels for the cheese balls, popcorn, and animal crackers on the computer in Word, and then printed them on sticker paper. You can pick up the big bear animal crackers at Target too.
The kids played for two hours and all the adults managed the loot from the prize machines...we filled colored paper lunch bags with snacks for them to take home...you know, all those carbs from the pizza and cookie cake make you hungry in about thirty minutes, and you need something for the road.
And the only cleanup we had was rolling up the paper table cloth and depositing it in the trash. Nice.

How Feed the Birdies flew in....
Once upon a time two little boys ate Happy Meals in the middle seat of a Ford minivan. Not quite willing to eat the last few fries, they launched them out the door screaming, "feed the birdies!!" And so my journal of a road through motherhood and wifedom, with a little bit of crafting on the side...where everybirdy gets a french fry. And we're all happy about it.
