Updates & a giveaway winner

Things have been a little crazy around here and the blog (and blog visiting) has gone by the wayside.  My birthday was last week and Jason took me away for a night, our 16 year anniversary is Friday, and Gage is turning 4 on Saunday!  This is his first year having a friend party and like a newbie I worried about renting a place and having no kids show up.  sigh.  So, I foolishly decided to have it at our house.  Then they ripped off our deck and won’t put it back on until someone else comes and takes a look at something.  Next Wednesday. Ok, no deck, it’ll be chilly no big deal (except for the hideous looking cavernous space right outside the biggest door/window in the house).  Remember how I was worried no one would show up?  We’re up to 11 kid rsvps plus parents. That’s 11 3-5 year olds to entertain for 2 hours.  Plus I did invite a few other people who work with Gage.  Bah! Anyway, as I sit typing this I am really thinking about how much needs to get done before Sunday.  But I do love a party 🙂

I need to get a few things off my to-do list.

I promised a prize for a quiz a few weeks ago and I have a winner. Both Hannah and Nise got perfect scores (no surprise there!)  and Gage drew a name….Hannah!  There’s no photo evidence because I’m having technical difficulties (of course!).  I will be mailing off her surprise gift from the Library of Congress soon (soon means after the party).

I made a quiz this morning, but it’s for Dewey’s 24 Hour Readathon this weekend.  You still have time to sign-up!  My quiz will be hour 11 (6pm EST) if you want to come back and take a look.

You may see me around this week here or elsewhere on the blogs but if not don’t take it personally. It’s been a long time since we had a party here and I’m probably just freaking out 🙂

    I loved the posts you shared of your weekend Birthday getaway!! I need to get everyone together and go to a winery in a nearby town. It’s been on my bucket list and I need to check it off.

    I know it’s a bit nerve-racking, thinking about all those kids at Gage’s party, but I think everything will be ok and the kids will have a great time.

    Congratulations to Hannah on her win!

    Inhale…exhale… Repeat times a trillion. It’ll be great. Gage will have a great time. You’ll have a great time. Don’t let the stress overhwhelm you (SO EASIER SAID THAN DONE!). Happy birthday to you both.

    I remember those parties! I haven’t had my boys’ parties at home for years…and I’ve never paid for a place either. I have Gabe’s at the park. We live in Nashville and his birthday is in early November so it’s usually not too cold and there’s usually no worries of all the pavilions being taken. Reece’s is in January so it’s more tricky. I was doing his at McDonald’s, but he outgrew that last year so we did it at CiCi’s (not sure if you have them there…it’s a buffet pizza place). They have a game room so it’s good for preteen kids. Good luck with the party and please wish Gage a very happy birthday!

    You reminded me about the read-a-thon. I was thinking it was next week! I signed up, but not sure how much reading I’ll get done, as this is my second birthday weekend (my birthday was yesterday, smack dab in the middle of two weekends, so two birthday weekends 😉 so I have big plans this weekend. lol
