ONE THING AFTER ANOTHER...

We have so many things coming up in the next few weeks, but I'm trying not to feel overwhelmed.

I'm actually excited about all of them, but they are literally all back to back!

Next week, my sister and her family will be visiting from Hawaii, but we're only going to see them for a couple of days. They have to spread their time out between us, my dad, and my mom.

It's also my oldest daughter's 13th birthday next Wednesday, so I'm glad her cousins will be here to spend it with her!

That coming Friday, we're going to visit my in-laws in Nevada for a couple of days, and I'm still worried about our puppies and what we're going to do with them (they are indoor dogs).

June 1st will by my son's 8th grade graduation ceremony!!! I'm beyond thrilled! I'm so proud of him! I can't believe I will have a high schooler (is that a word?) this fall!

And finally, that coming weekend is going to be Miranda's big 13th birthday party at Embassy Suites Hotel! At the last minute, her friend decided not to have the party together, so it's going to be "all about her." We made her invitations and I already received the decorations that I ordered through birthdayexpress.com.

Here's a picture of her invitations. We bought plain silver shiny card stock, glued on the pre-cut scrapbook paper, and the dots and beads were just stickers. So simple! It's hard to tell, but it's red, silver, and black, and they also match her "Rock Star Diva" theme!

One of the "splurges" that I made for her party is ordering these custom cookies by a blogger that I found through Mckmama! I sent her a picture of the party theme, and she is going to do the rest!! You should check her site out here if you have time. She makes the best cakes & cookies! I told my daughter that I better not see one crumb hanging around!

But, that's not it for June! A few weeks later is my son, Eli's, 10th birthday, and he's already got everything planned about what he wants to do!! That makes it so much easier for me, thank you very much!

Oh, and did I mention that my two other boys birthday's are in July? Only two weeks apart from each other...
