Thursday 13....number three


Thirteen things I need to do before Will's party on Saturday.......yep, this Saturday....like in two days. Hard to believe he will be four on Sunday.
This is the face I get when I ask him to say cheese for his dad.....lovely!
1. Order cake....dinosaur theme please, he says so nicely way back in January.
2. Print out chart for thank you notes.
3. Let me back up, make hand print for thank you notes.
4. Assemble thank you notes.
5. Get helium tank for balloon to tie on favors.
6. Assemble favors.
7. Track cookies ordered from foofoo cookie place to see if where they are.
8. Buy sand for dinosaur dig activity.
9. Drain water from the sand and water table.
10. Fill sand and water table with new sand and dinosaur bones.
11. Buy plastic ware and paper goods.
12. Buy ice cream and pick up cake day of party.
13. Buy cute dinosaur shirt for birthday boy.
I think I can get most of this done over the next two days. I can't believe my baby is going to be four!

If not, this will be me with my cute foofoo cookies from foofoo place online.

Hey! Joe's birthday is this weekend too -- he turns 5 on Saturday. We are doing his party on Saturday and I am waaaaay behind....but I am no where near as ambitious as you (hand made thank you notes? ack!) - sounds like your party is going to be a lot of fun - I can't wait to see pictures :)

(oh and yes! I bought a suit at Target...it is plain black one piece with the circle metal thingy in the front/halter) I also ordered two from J.Crew on sale - I love one (it is very similar to the Target one) and the other I am going to return. On sale it was only a little more than the Target one. Oh! and I bought a cover up at Target, it is so cute. :)

For me and my December 23 son, it's:
1. Plan all year not to let other things get in the way of having a party.

2. Feel guilty because we never got around to putting the party together.

Sounds like Will is going to have a great party (all thanks to you, of course!). You seem very organized. Just curious ... what's a thank you note chart?

Dinosaurs, how cool. He is going to have a ball and so will you. Great list and have a Happy Thursday.

Great picture!!!

It seems dinosaurs are your theme? I'm not really sure what led me to believe this but I am getting
that intuition thing going on with this.


Have fun and good luck ..you organized woman you !

Before you know it he'll be 10 and they're too cool for dinosaur cakes and you have to sneak kisses because they're so busy!

I just love a good party:)

Sounds like your son is going to a wonderful 4th birthday. I know what you mean about where has the time gone. My oldest turns 8 in September. It just blows me away.

My little darlin' will be FIFTEEN on Saturday. Seems like only yesterday I had the same list that you did. Enjoy it!

TJ Michaels said...

Woman, you are WAY more organized when it comes to partying that I'll ever be. My youngest has had sixteen birthday and I'm still behind on the thank you cards...sixteen years behind (aacckk!)
