toddlers galore.

Over the past few weeks we had Marc's parents visiting us from California and our cousins from California, too. We've got 7 cousins under 3 years old on Marc's side of the family - so it makes for some fun and loud get-togethers. We did a lot of fun things while they were here!

We let all the toddlers frost a Halloween cake ... yeah, I wasn't about to eat it afterwards - I saw all of them doing the "one swipe on the cake, two swipes on my toungue" method.


We ate at Joe's Crab Shack - which is excellent because they have an outdoor play place like you'd find at a park. This is key when you have 7 kids to entertain while the food is being cooked.


We went to the pumpkin patch - here's all the kiddos in one picture. The oldest 2 are 3 years old, Mason and the twins are 2 years old, then there is a 17 month old and a 5 month old. Crazy!


Mason says "yeah, it's freezing. Let's come back and get pumpkins when there is not a sub-zero wind blowing".


We celebrated William's 3rd birthday while everyone was here -- I had a little party for him at our house. I have been wanting to make a Happy Birthday banner like this one out of all my felt scraps from capes - but I saw this one at Target and decided to buy it to use as a stand in until I have the time to make myself one. It's cute!

I put candy in jars to decorate the table and used my brightly colored bowls and serving dishes to make the table fun.

We also went to a giant indoor playplace where they had about 7 or 8 of those giant inflatable slides and jumping houses. Those things are fun! All of us adults got to go in since the little kids couldn't climb up the ladders by themselves. I think we had just as much fun as they did.

We also went to the park, ate and played at Chic Fil-A, went shopping and played lots of Wii. We'll miss you Grandma and Grandpa!


  1. Ok hi miss party doer! It looks so cute!! Can i just hire you to decorate my house when i have a party???
    Speaking of a part--you should have one at your house and have the Fasslers/Blackburns over!! :)

    i meant "speaking of a party..."

  3. I'm so glad to find out that those bounce house things can handle adults! I keep telling my old lady that we are going to have one at our wedding.
