Tonight I'm gunna party like it's 2009!


Oh yeah, tonight is the annual Christmas tree burning party! We are getting the chili ready, taking down the decorations, and cleaning up!


Speaking of parties, I wanted to share the pictures from my girls parties before Tim's party gets here. Maddie turned 4 on December 8th and we had a princess fairy party.


I've always had Molly and Maddie's parties together because their birthdays are only a week apart, but this year they each got their own day and they both had a blast
.

I made Maddie this little fairy costume for her party, and Aunt Rae decorated the giant cupcake.


Molly wanted a flower party so I made her this little flower tree, but no costume.....no, apparently 8 year olds don't wear flower costumes. Bummer.

This is the cutest picture of Molly and her Uncle Adam! Look at those little best friends! Rae made Molly a giant cupcake too. Isn't she awesome? She used to work in a bakery, she rocks.

Before I go I want to thank you all for making this blog such a fun place to be! You make it so much fun! Thanks for all of the encouragement, prayers, friendship, and love you have given my family in this last year. I wish you all a happy and healthy 2010!

Love,
Samantha

If we burned our tree here in the burbs, we'd probably get a ticket {or worse!} Happy New Year to your family, Way to go all out for the birthdays!

Hey Sam, it's Dad. I still don't know how to do the name thing.
in class last night we started a lasso class, just in time too.
i'm getting Tim his own rope for next Wed., he's so excited about lassoing.
I loved the part on "How to get Kids to eat"

Happy New Year, Samantha! What lovelies your little girls are. I understand about the flower costume! 8 seems to be a major turning point for my little Abby, too...all grown up. You are so creative and for one day I'd like to be a fly on your wall to see all of the beauty of your home. Be blessed!

Happy New Year, Samantha! I loved reading about the birthday celebrations and the new animals. Your children are so fortunate to live in a rural area where they can be so close to nature. They are blessed to have you make such marvelous memories for them (you do it every day!). Lucky children! Luckier mommy! God bless you! 2010 will be a grand year!
