Party Planner

Yesterday was my birthday but I had a special party planner that
planned this party last Saturday night! 
My little "Angel"!!!
 

Angel called everyone in my immediate family and told them what time, what to bring
and got it all together.  She is amazing!
We had taco salads and lots of desserts!


This is "Big Sis", Brother & Little D in the massage chair!
Anytime we have anything at my house with my family
we always wear p.j.'s so we will be comfy!

This is "Sweet Teen"!
Sweet Teen made the Butter finger cake!

And it was delicious!!!

"Big Sis" made her famous ultimate strawberry short cake!
Oh my goodness!!!

"Angel" is on the far left holding "Little D"!
See daddy's quilts stacked up?
All the girls and the little ones are in the "nobody's room" playing
Wheel of Fortune on the Wii!
They laughed and laughed and had so much fun.
I will have to do a blog on the "nobody's room" one day.
Do you name your rooms?

The guys were in the "big room" watching the ball game and eating!
The room is a mess but the kids had fun!
See that quilt in the basket? 
"Trouble" saw that one that my daddy made and bought it!!!

My name is Val and I am addicted.
Addicted to crocheting.
While everyone was doing their thing, me and the girls
started crocheting again!
I didn't take a picture of my little party planner that night so I used this picture
when she was learning to crochet.
I have to tell you that this little "Angel" is 10 years old and is so smart!
She made about 50 phone calls to plan this party with my family.
She figured out when everyone could come, she planned the menu and decided the time! 
Did she do good or what?
She made my family birthday party very special. 
Thank you to my family & a special thank you to my "Angel"!.

Today I am thankful for......gifts of love.

A belated happy birthday to you. That is so sweet of Angel to plan that party for you. That is a big accomplishment for a ten year old.

I'm laughing about your addiction to crocheting. I can't sit down without grabbing my crochet hooks. Whether I'm crocheting dishcloths, plarn bags or hats, if I'm sitting down watching TV, I'm crocheting.

Heidi said...

Happy belated birthday. Just want to say you have such a caring family. I loved the idea of wearing your pjs. I am new to the blogging world as I just started my blog this week. I have so much to learn, but have been a lurker on your blog for quite some time. Looking forward to making new friends. Would love you to visit.

Angel's party is very impressive! Maybe she has a future as an event planner. Happy birthday, Val! Wishing you many more! :)

Ruth said...

Wow! You have a little sweet party planner in the house. She's done a great job!
Our house is small and has only few rooms so we don't need to name rooms. I would like to hear more about your "nobody's room".

Happy belated birthday to you, Val. Glad to know you had a special celebration.

Blessings!
