Pirates, Halloween, and Cupcakes, Oh My!

As the terrible twos give way to the test-mom’s-patience-threes (almost three) I have been in  serious planning mode for the kid’s birthdays and Halloween! Since all three events take place in a 15 day span… they require some serious preparation. WHY didn’t NotHubby and I plan this better?! Ugh… welcome to my life for the next 15 years. Good thing I actually  REALLY like throwing baby birthday parties. 🙂

JacecrybabyBWAre you SURE the answer is no Mommy? Like super duper sure? How about if I sit here on the floor and ask 10 more times? Still no then?…”

Yesterday I did yard work. Me. Yard work. I place yard work somewhere between laundry & baby vomit on my list of least favorite things. But I pulled weeds. I bought mulch, & then I laid mulch. I stole my in-laws bush scissors {yes, I am aware of how this sounds} and I cut bushes. Then, I raked all of the leftover crap up & carried it away. I did yard work yesterday. & while doing all of this wretched yard work, I saw a dragon. Yes, a dragon lives in my bushes. Some might call him a gecko, but they would be wrong because geckos do not get that big.
& I fully intend to make Josh power wash the house in return for all of my hard work with the mulch & bushes. Fair is fair. 😉

Anyways, the theme for Jace’s 3rd birthday party will be Pirates. Compliments of his Jake & the Neverland Pirates obsession. It’s going to be pretty awesome. I can’t wait to post it on here afterwards. I have already made his invite!


Zoey’s theme will be cupcakes. I haven’t made her invite yet. But I’ve got some ideas floating around for that already too. Like I said… 15 days, 3 occasions, 2 kids. I need to knock the details out pretty early. & I don’t know if anyone else has noticed, but time is like…FLYING lately. I feel like we pretty much skipped right over the month of August and here were are hurtling into October, full speed ahead. Now if someone could just let the state of Florida know that it isn’t summer anymore… and that it can turn friggin’ heat down a notch… that’d be great.

I am not totally set on Halloween costumes for the kids yet. Well, Jace is looking like he’s gonna stick with his birthday theme for the week and dress as a pirate. I am just not positive what to make Miss Zo yet. It is her very FIRST Halloween! eeek! So I want it to be extra cute. Haha. Who am I kidding… have you seen my kids?! 😉
