Busy? Not me! :)

A super happy hello to you all this morning! I have been in such a good mood since I woke up this morning!! I think it could have something to do with the fact that we have been SO busy lately and today we have NOTHING to do!! We can just play and do whatever we want!! It also may have something to do with my hubby being gone back to help his parents with harvest for a week! ;) Not that I don't love him to pieces, but sometimes a little break is nice! He usually works sooo much (a couple days off every thirty days) and this summer his work has been super slow so he's been around a lot more than I'm used to! I know by the end of the week I'll be waiting for him to come home, but for now, freedom!! :)

Yesterday was the girls' combined birthday party with all their little friends! They are 3 weeks short f being exactly 2 years apart so I thought I would get two parties over in one shot! :) It turned out to be a great day and I think their Rainbow Party was a hit! 

I got the idea for the party, as well as the decorations from Pinterest! LOVE that site!! All of a sudden it feels like the world is at my finger tips since I have discovered that site!!!

I also made a banner a while back (for my It's a RAINBOW Party Blog Hop

Unfortunately I didn't have a chance to take any more pics of the deocrations... :( I had a cute little jar decorated that held rainbow licorice and lots of colorful balloons, etc.... The party was in two different rooms in a building and unfortunately we got rushed out of the first one rather quickly... 

As soon as the girls got home, they dove right into their new dress up clothes they got for their Birthday!! This is why I love having little girls!! :) 

I am linking up my rainbow cake and fruit platter to Link Up Tuesday over at Pink Cricut. If you haven't been there before, you really need to check it out! I even had my diaper cake featured there this week! :) There are allll kinds of great ideas posted there for all different types of crafts!! 

The paper crafting projects have been a little lacking on my blog lately, but I promise they will pick up again soon! :) I have a projects I need to get posted and I can't wait to show you!! :)

Happy Birthday to your girls!! My brother and I are just 1 week short of 2 yrs apart so we combined parties, too!
I can't believe I'm saying it, but I miss the dress-up days! At 16, 14, and 12, my girls are past that!
