"My skin is kind of sort of brownish pinkish yellowish white.
My eyes are greyish blueish green, but I'm told they look orange in the night.
My hair is reddish blondish brown, but it's silver when it's wet,
And all the colors I am inside have not been invented yet."

Happy Memorial Day! and More Party Prep

Happy Memorial Day, everyone. Here's a little picture from this morning. My parents pulling my son in the wagon to watch the parades in town. These are two amazing people. I am incredibly lucky to have the family I have.
Thanks to all the men and women who have served our country, and to their families. It is so appreciated. Thank you!

Now, more birthday preparation! I found both of these ideas on howdoesshe.com which is an amazing resource for fun crafts! Here is my version of the birthday board (we are doing a countdown to the party since his birthday is several days before his party)
His meals: (I should have made them smaller since they overlap the celebration part)

And a balloon wreath that we will certainly be reusing every year! It was so fun, and incredibly easy and cheap! He really loves it too.

Not too much longer until the big party. And tomorrow my baby will be 4 years old!!! EEK.
