It's official.

My first born is growing up way too fast.  She started preschool today.  I was/am excited about this new chapter.  I am looking forward to getting to spend time with just Sweet Pea.  But, it was still hard to watch Mini Me wave goodbye and walk into school without us.

Sweet Pea was devastated that Mini Me was not getting back into the car with us....until she realized that she could have the toys all to herself.  :-)

Come inside it's party time!

Let's face it.  I only have so much creative energy left after a day entertaining a preschooler and toddler.  So, instead of using that to blog, I've been working on Sweet Pea's second birthday party.  I am making the gift bags, banner, lacing cards, and felt cupcakes for each child.  I am *trying* to finish knitting mickey washcloths too, to go along with some adorable Mickey shaped soaps.  But, the jury is still out on whether or not the knitting will be done in time.

I am also making a huge Mickey's Clubhouse feltboard for the kids to play with.

Thank goodness I have someone awesome who is making the cake for me.  I can't wait to see it!

13 days until party day!

The past week has been busy with a visit from my parents, a trip to the zoo, my birthday (and subsequent obsession with my iPhone--thank you hubby!!!!!!), fall decorating (I LOVE fall, it is by far the best time of the year), and preparing for Sweet Pea's 2nd birthday.

Mini Me starts gymnastics tonight and we officially begin our fall schedule.  I can't wait!

Sorry.  Gotta run.  My iPhone is calling.
