So Saturday finally came for Joseph. Bless him, he asked every day for a week if it was his party day.
The morning was Busy with a capital 'B' Had to turn the house over to look for the gazebo cover. One day, I dream that this house will be a house of order and I will know where everything is at any given moment - a girl's gotta dream big :) Anyway it was totally worth all the planning, prep and work during and tidying up just to see this little boy oozing with happiness at 'His party'.
Almost ready to go, showing off the dragon tee I appliquéd for his birthday t-shirt.
