Thirteen Things Happening in Our Household This Week

  1. Party Preparations for Weekend - are in full swing as you'll see below...
  2. Birthday Cake Dilemmas - after swearing for months she wanted a butterfly cake, Keira decided two days ago that instead she wanted a Dora the Explorer cake. Riiggggttt...
  3. Birthday Cake Dilemmas #2 - we can't decide if we want Riley's cake to be a '1' shape (for his age) or in a Christening theme (because that's what else it is!). It might be a mix of both
  4. We had the carpet cleaned! How extravagant!
  5. Jumping Castle booked!
  6. Food bought!
  7. Alcohol bought! (and with my family, it's kind of a prerequisite)
  8. Adam's sister has been with us already for a few days and has been a wonderful help. Those extra pair of hands really make a difference because...
  9. ....consequently, Riley has been much perkier this week, because he's feeling better and because there's lots going on (that's my guess, anyway)
  10. I've had my hair cut, coloured, eyebrows waxed etc to look my best (well, as close too)
  11. Keira has about five potential party dresses picked out for the day, and would wear each one if I let her.
  12. All this considered, I'm going to have to relax and let it all happen because already I'm getting stressed about it, and on a completely non-related subject...
  13. ...I've had another article accepted for publication. Woot!

Number 7, alcohol buying is kind of a prerequisite for our family gatherings as well. Not because they want it, I just need it to get through the event myself.
