Count down to the Mickey Mouse Birthday Extravaganza




Wrapping presents, so much to do!
Our little Maddy is turning 2!!


I think I'm a bit more excited than she is about this party. I've collected the latest Mickey Mouse party paraphernalia, food, food and more food!

Thank goodness we are all feeling better.

I'll be sure to get some pictures tomorrow and post them as soon as I can.

On another note, you know how I'm taking those steriods for this nasty sinus infection? Well, in order to get the dose of 6 pills in yesterday, the package said to take two at bedtime. Well, hello? If you do that, you will certainly not be able to sleep. So, I was up til 2 am this morning. However, it was some productive time. I began Maddy's Ladybug scrapbook. I'm so excited to have finished some pages. I'm really trying to get our photo albums and pictures up to date. And you know what was weird? I really enjoyed it! So, I've got about 6 more days of these steriods to take "at bedtime". So, maybe by the end of the illness, I will have completed a scrap book or two! Hidden blessings, huh! There always there, you just have to see 'em!

Well, I'm off to complete the never ending list of things to do prior to the party:

Today's List

1) Dust everything in the house
2) Sweep and Mop all floors (wood floor in living room area, tile in kitchen and
bathrooms)
3) Vaccuum floors
4) Clean toilets, tubs, sinks
5) Make Mickey Mouse silhouette decorating thingys


Tomorrow's list:
1) Clean and cut veggies for tray
2) Clean and cut fruit in fun & exciting shapes for fruit basket :-)
3) Fill balloons with helium
4) Pick up cupcakes and sandwiches from Walmart
5) Rearrange living room for max seating capacity
6) Arrange eating area and layout food
7) Hug and kiss my little Maddy (and my Baby Lulu!)
8) ENJOY THE PARTY!

Aw. I can't wait to see pictures of the fruit basket. You should take a few of the process of making it, maybe you can post a how-to lesson for the rest of us. Seriously! I hope you all have a GREAT GREAT time. Two was a really fantastic birthday for Bean. One was cute and all, but two was just... special. I don't think it can help but be, though because 2 is a special age!
