You're Invited!

This afternoon...it was so nice outside that Eric and I took the girls fishing! I loved to see them in shorts, running around laughing and having fun!!Party girl Megan kinda fell in the pond...one foot only. Party girl Jordan kinda fell into Megan, oops. What's a wet sock and shoe though, they'll dry out!
First one to catch a fish gets a "love coupon". Guess who caught the fish? Yep, it was Eric!!
So we switched gears and told the party girls that anyone who kissed the fish gets a "love coupon". Shoulda known.......these are country girls. They ain't skeered of no slimy little fish! Ick, that's gross!!

Remember when you asked if you could be invited to my girls' Valentine party? Well, here's the next best thing.......a CYBER PARTY just for you! I'm going to try to update you on the party happenings. Here we go!

10:00am...The first order of business was going to watch my reds kick some butt on the basketball court. They rocked! We loaded up all the other girls' bags and we were off to our house afterwards.
The house was all decorated.
This centerpiece and the hanging heart lanterns was the extent of my decorating.
Here's all the glass, place cards and bags...just waiting for the girls.
There were two ways to earn instant *LOVE COUPONS* (redeemable for a grand prize for the most coupons) when the girls walked in the door. 1...The party girls could bring me chocolate or Diet Coke. 2......The party girls could make Eric a homemade Valentine. The party girls pulled through with BOTH. I got enough chocolate and Diet Coke to last me through tomorrow. Eric got some good Valentines, these party girls had their thinking caps on!
The party girls each had to bring a stuffed animal gift. They were CUTE!! We did the exchange and each party girl ended up with just the perfect critter. They were all happy!!
Then the party girls were hungry. We had a simple lunch of sandwiches and chips and pop. The perfect junk food lunch.....what a way to start the party! Oh, I did serve pink fruit dip and fresh fruit too.
This is party girl Megan. We also call her Ida.....short for I Don't Know. Cuz that's what she says every single time you ask her a question! We love party girl Megan!! She got the award for the most disgusting lunch. She chose to have peanut butter and jelly sandwich which was just fine. Then she topped it off with Cheetos!!! Groooooooooooooosssssssss, party girl Megan!! Some food just do not belong together like that.
Well, that's it for now. The party girls are all outside. It's an incredibly beautiful day here so the party girls are enjoying the weather. In shorts! I have to go outside too, it's just too nice to be inside. Eric is hiding somewhere. He keeps going up the road to my folks' house, something about he needs something to fix up his ol' truck. Git back here, Eric!!
I'll check back later........

Too fun. Thanks for the cyber tour of the party--almost as good as being there in person. Looks like the girls had a good time. One question--did they appreciate your hard work on the place cards, etc?

I just stopped by your blog for the first and I am so touched by your pics and stories. I lost my son 1 year and 5 months ago and I so miss doing things with him. He would have been 22 years old, but I was involved in everything he did and I miss getting to spend days at the lake checking out what nature was doing on days like today. We would fish and hunt together, but most of all he loved for me to add items to his scrapbook. He would save things for me to put in there for him. I was thankful because I had his scrapbook at the funeral home for his friends to look at. The staff at the funeral home said that was the best idea they had ever seen because they got to see his friends in a time of great saddness laugh and remember the good times they had together. I am just now getting back into scraping and I am struggling because of the memories of him being involved with me in doing so, but I know he would love for me to do it so here I go!!!! Thanks for reminding me of all the times I still have to scrap of Billy so his son can have a book of his life when he gets older.

Leanne - Ardmore, OK

Michelle said...

Suddenly the PB&Cheetos doesn't sound so bad compared to kissing a FISH!

Beth said...

Bella and I were part of the virtual party - she thinks she should have been invited just because she is a red too! Looks like fun -

DeeDee said...

Dear Mish,
Just wanted to let you know how much I enjoy your blog. I try and visit your blog everyday, since I found out about you during the Spelllbinder's big give-away Anniversary. You are so talented and very FUNNY! I LOL a lot when reading your blog. :) But more than that, you are very a special person, (you touch my heart) and I love that you share your special times about your family with us stampers/paper-crafters on-line. I love how you also remind people about how important it is to spend time with family, and how important being a parent (spending quality time and having fun with your children)and teacher is. I am so happy I found your blog, and I look forward to visiting often. Thank you for all you do, (you are so talented!) and for touching the lives of others. :)
Tammie from Minnesota.

I actually DO still put Cheetos Puffs on my PB&J's from time to time. Yum!! But not the crunchy Cheetos -- that's just not as good. Hee!
