After months and months of planning. After night after night of bad dreams. The party came and went fine. The day of the party was NON Stop. I had made several trips to the Rents' house dropping off supplies, but on the day of the party, I still had to get balloons, the cake, ice cream.... Those kinds of things. The morning began with a moonwalk for a sweet friend. I couldn't turn it down because she helped get us a BIG job last year. So bright and early the boys and I headed over to set it up (Stacy had to work). From there, I ran to get a quick haircut. I had been NEEDING one for months, but knowing that I would be outside in the 90 degree temps for most of the day, I decided to bite the bullet. I went to Great Clips told the girl I needed a quick cut. I told her my goal is to be able to put my hair in a ponytail..... Instead of the 6 inches that I was planning on, she cut about 8! Needless to say it was a bit of a change. While I was getting my haircut Mama and Daphne both began calling me to see where I was. Daphne had volunteered to help me that morning. I headed to the Rents' as quickly as I could. I had Daphne help me make cupcake ice cream cones, she also helped me fill candy containers. We worked and prepared until after lunch. I got a call from the girl who had the moonwalk saying that she was finished. Stacy was still working, so I loaded up the boys, ran to retrieve the moonwalk, get the cake, balloons, and ice cream, and headed back to the Rents' We got there 1 1/2 before the party was supposed to begin, and I had NOTHING set up outside. I was hoping that Stacy would be able to help me.... Daddy had an event at Stone Mt, and Mama was exhausted. I rushed around like a chicken with my head cut off. The signs wouldn't stick in the ground, some began to come apart. I was just about to breakdown. All of my nightmares were going to come true. My party was going to be a failure..... Then Stacy showed up. 20 minutes before the guests arrived, and he saved the day. I told him exactly where to put the decor and I jumped in the shower. By the time I was out and dressed, Stacy had completed the job and people were already there. The party went smoothly. Everyone with the exception of one little girl came. I had a hard time choosing pics because my personal photographer Ms. Martha did and AWESOME job, here are just some of my favorites :)
Man, I missed this face this summer!
