Party plans are in full swing

Well actually the planning is over, now is the time for execution! I can't believe that my baby girl will be 3 on Tuesday. I know she is going to enjoy this birthday so much more this year. She picked the theme herself and she has been asking me for weeks if today is her party. I can't tell you how much I enjoy planning a party for my precious little girl. She is blessed enough to have all of her grandparent there (we are going to miss her Great-grandparents though who can't make the trip) and so many friends to celebrate with. I can't wait until tomorrow when we are all going to have a "Berry" fabulous birthday celebration!

Kyndal’s Birthday is coming up soon

Invites are out and preparations are in full swing… our little girl is going to be 3 very soon. I will post her invite on here as soon as I make another one for us. All of our family is of course invited, please don’t feel left out if you didn’t get an invite. We sent them to those who we thought would be able to make it, and those who usually can’t we didn’t only because I hand made each of her invitations so I needed to shorten the list so I wouldn’t get carpel tunnel :) It is Saturday August 29th at 4:00 pm and the theme is Strawberry Shortcake.

If you are wondering what to get for the little princess who is about to turn 3, I will give you some ideas to help you out. Of course please don’t feel like you have to buy her anything and if you still feel like you want to…. know that she would be thrilled with something as simple as stickers (especially if they were the sparkly kind) or even tattoos.

Here is the list….

Dress up stuff… princess dresses of every kind since she has none.

Barbies, she has been waiting to turn three for these!

Nightgowns, she is outgrowing all of her PJ’s and she only has one nightgown but it is her favorite thing to sleep in.

She loves to sing …. she has asked for a guitar.

And really anything girly. We have made her wish lists at Target and Babies R Us to maybe help out a little. We are not trying to be greedy, we just get asked so many times by different people for suggestions we thought we would make it easier this year.

Also, one more request from Mommy and Daddy, we are getting her a Melissa and Doug puppet theater for her birthday so she will need some more Melissa and Doug puppets. We have placed some on each of her wish lists. We are getting her the cheerleader puppet.

Her Lists:

Toys-r-us wish list

Target Wish List

and just for kicks… I was browsing some Barbie stuff looking for things to add to her list and I came across this…

Barbie and the Rockers

It is one of the Barbies that I had as a little girl. Barbie and the Rockers, in fact I think we still have it somewhere. I think it was the very last Barbie I ever got and I even remember the store we got it at in Florida, Ames. I can’t believe it has come back as a vintage Barbie. Go check out the Barbies in the stores, since it is Barbies 50th anniversary they are bringing back Barbies from many generations. You may be able to find one from your childhood. Barbie and the Rockers Barbie was made in 1986, I was 10 years old.

School is back in

Kyndal started back to school yesterday.  It seems as if our summer has just flown by.  I have not been real good about blogging because Kyndal and my business have keep me extremely busy.  It has been rather hard keeping up with things for the business that has been busier than any previous summer and keeping Kyndal occupied.  I hope to have a blog post of pictures with some summer highlights soon.  Kyndal has stayed busy (and Mommy too) with her summer dance class, meeting new friends, socializing with old friends, attending a new church, going to the zoo, swimming at the YMCA and many other things! 

She will be going to school Tuesday and Thursday like she did last year from 9-2.  She already knows one of her teachers… Abby’s Mommy, a friend of ours from church.  She also know several kids in her class from last year and an old friend from her Kindermusic class from when she was little that we have gotten back in touch with through dance class and church.  Her name is Anna Kate and I am sure you will hear more about her since Kyndal loves her new little friend Anna Kate. 

For now here is a picture from yesterday on our way to school.


and one from last year on her first day of school

If your happy in your nose

Kyndal was singing tonight….

“If your happy in your nose, clap your hands” 

I said Kyndal it is supposed to be “If your happy and you know it, clap your hands” .  She said no Mommy, those are not the words that my teacher says…. she taught us “If your happy in your nose, clap your hands”.  Can’t really argue with an almost 3 year old, well I can I just wont win.
