Lumberjack Birthday Party

The year has flown by and my older kids are both turning another year older this week. 
How is my oldest 9 already? It seems like it was just yesterday when we brought her home from the hospital, but that was almost a decade ago!!

 We can't stop the time from flying by, the only thing we can do is live every moment to the fullest. 
Love each other, cuddle our kidos while they still like to be cuddle, read aloud to them while they still love bed time stories and spend as much time with them as possible. 

We celebrated their birthdays this weekend with family and friends. It was a such a fun day.
 At the end of the day, my son told me that he wished it was morning again and he could have his party all over again. I agree with you my dear, it went by way to fast. 

This year our theme was lumberjack inspired, both boy and girl friendly.

-This year we tried a new game, we loaded up empty tissue boxes with ping pong balls which we strapped to our waists with belts and the kids had to wiggle and dance them all out, the person who got them out first was the winner, so much fun! I can see this being a hit with adults to! -
