KSW 4 Years






I cannot believe that my first baby is going to be 4. Four!!! How did that happen??? I swear it zips by in a blink. I know, I know...some days are definitely seemingly endless but when you look at the time as a whole it's just amazing how fast it goes. I decided to do a very small group this year of 8 little girls including my daughter. The theme is CUPCAKES!! I'm planning DYO cupcake (decorate your own), a cupcake hunt with homemade (by the kids) telescopes, a cupcake craft and we're having the proverbial bouncy house for anyone who cares not to participate in above activities. =) Considering the small number of guests, I have decided to do something a little extra this year for her invites. I pulled out the mailboxes that I hoarded during last Valentine's Day and set to work. We will be hand delivering these with a letter inside to each child with all of the party details.

I can't wait and I hope that early October brings us fantastic weather!! But if not, we'll have the festivities inside!!

I hope that everyone has a great and creative week!! It's so great to be BACK!!
