What Is It?

For those of you who are familiar with my main blog, you know that on Monday's I ask a question.  Well, I have some questions for this blog today too!

What is it about holding a new baby?  It's just so sweet and wonderful.  I got to hold Emmy's new little guy last Thursday while I sat and visited with her.
Isn't he the sweetest?  I saved this picture from Emmy's blog.  She took the picture.

What is it about seeing old friends that is magical and nostalgic?  Last Friday we had a mini reunion of sorts.  My BFF's mom, dad, and daughter were out here so daughter could scout out colleges.  BFF couldn't make it because of work, but it was still so nice to see them!  I had not seen BFF's mom in over 20 years.  She and my mom are BFF's.

What is about kid parties that wear us out?  The set up?  The clean up?  The noise?  This party was small, but fun.  We played music, had a lip sync, freeze dance, pinata and of course cup cakes!

Her friend, L was a little shy, but she still played along!  That's pretty cool and brave since she only knew Emily and W.

Kristin was the paparazzi!  She had a blast.

Even WE got to play!  I think my sister took this one.

 I chose Ryan for this picture of pinata time only because it is a major milestone that he even participated, let alone the fact that he ALLOWED me to blindfold him.!  Way to go dude!
Emily wanted a "music" party.  The center piece is a jukebox.  My mom made the musical notes and "sheet music"  


And lastly, what is it about annoying the family pet that makes us laugh?
"I am sooo hocking a fur ball into your shoe!"
My brother's cat, Sumo.  He really is a sweet cat.
And forgiving.  


Photos from the party were taken by my mom and sister.  I will be posting Kristin's pictures soon.

Hey, I'm new to your blog, just became a follower. Loved that little baby picture, he is adorable. I agree, something so magical about holding a baby.
And those cat pics are hilarious!!! I have two cats, and they can be so funny.

Lots to think about here! Kid parties ARE exhausting! And the family pet in a hat? Hours of fun!

Looks like an awesome party! That cake is so cute and creative! And yes that is a huge step for Ryan. See there is hope :)
