Only 2 weeks left till moving day and the twins birthday party. Yeah I'm crazy and will be having the moving truck here as part of the birthday festivities. It'll tell me who are true friends are - the ones that help you load heavy stuff (haha!).
How's the packing going? A frequent question asked and the only answer is it's going. There isn't a whole lot to pack up that we aren't going to use. Most of Alexa's stuff is packed and her room is still full of toys. I got myself in trouble today because she wanted to listen to her Build a Bear cd and play with chocolate bear who is packed in a box in the garage. Tried to convince her that the black bear was just a dark chocolate bear but she must have seen right through me.
But I am making progress on my to-do lists. I just keep adding more to it so it doesn't look like I'm getting things accomplished.
I still need to finalize the party details - the menu is cake and ice cream. But I've got to figure out what I'm making for a cake. It needs to be dairy free for Jacob's sake. And do I do cupcakes for them to tear into? Guess that means I should add to my list "do not pack highchairs". Decorations will be kept simple and hopefully the weather will be nice for some outdoor time. Clean up will be easy as the house will be nearly empty. I do feel bad that I'm not going as all out as I did for Alexa's first birthday. But I just don't have the time and energy...and maybe, just maybe, I've learned a little something about birthday parties.
