It's Great to be Eight

My oldest daughter turned eight this past weekend!

We had a special birthday party to celebrate this new year, with lots of food, family, and friends.

The most special part of that day though, happened before the party, when her daddy baptized her.
It was amazing.  Full of lots of "happy" tears.
{We had to explain to my little three year old what "happy" tears were. 
She kept asking why people were sad. LOL!!!}

Now, this week I'm off and running with plans for my son's birthday party.
He asked for a jungle theme because, these days, he's crazy in love with animals.
Hopefully I'll be able to share some of my fun frugal jungle themed party ideas with you later on this week.


On a completely different note, my feet are totally ready for some spring gardening.
{New polka dot rain boots make for some easy clean up when the day's outside jobs are done :-)}

Happy Spring!

What a beautiful weekend for all of you and such a special day for your daughter. She looks like such a sweetie:). I have to ask....WHERE did you find those boots?? I love them! Sooo cute and I need boots so badly. I bet they are perfect for working outside:).

Have a great week:).
