This afternoon was Carter's birthday party. I'm sure most of you breathed a sigh of relief when Christmas was over - it was all DONE and you could finally relax. I couldn't do that until tonight. :-) Carter had a ton of fun at his party though, so it was all worth it! He's a rather shy boy, he gets a bit overwhelmed with large groups of kids, etc - but he did so good tonight! I kept the party small for that very reason - only four other kids (plus two babies) - I think just the right size for him at this point! I had also been telling him about his party for the past week or so, to "prepare" him - I think it really made a difference! This morning I told him his birthday party would be after his nap today - so when naptime came, he got right up from his playroom and walked to his bedroom, more than ready to go to sleep (this isn't common!) and said as I was putting him down "dinosaur cake" - he was sooo looking forward to his dinosaur cake! And when he woke up and saw the house transformed with balloons and decorations - I could tell he thought it was just too cool. :-) And boy did he enjoy that dinosaur cake!! He doesn't get this much sugar very often, so when he does, he's a very happy camper! I did manage to add one little homemade touch to the party (in addition to his invitations) - I stamped some very simple but cute favor bags for all the kids. So with the party finally behind me, I hope to have more stamped creations to show you in the coming days!! *sigh* This week is finally over! Now if only some elves would stop by and take down all my Christmas decorations...! :-)
