There's A Party at my HOUSE!

***I made this post a sticky post for the rest of this week for the Ultimate Blog Party, you can scroll down to see newer posts!***
Welcome to my humble abode! Please come in and watch out for the toys, all over the floor. I tried to tell the kids we were having company. But alas, they don't care, who am I kidding. Would you like to sit down and hold Peanut. She has her party dress on.

I'll go get us something to drink. I made strawberry banana smoothies! I also have some cheese and crackers if you get hungry. Here is your smoothie, but be careful because Peanut is at the stage where she is starting to grab at things, I wouldn't want her to spill the smoothie all over you.

Also beware that Buzz LightYear is running around the house somewhere and he likes to get people with his laser pointer.

He likes to party by jumping on the couch.

He seems to be entertaining Peanut and himself pretty well!





Oh look spidey joined us...this is my 5 year old, who we refer to as Monkey on here, as he is a lot like a monkey child.

Here comes my oldest (7yrs old) in her best party dress as not to be out done by her baby sister!


Now that you've met the kids...you can see I'm busy and there is never a dull moment in our house. I tend to blog about our happenings and the funny things my kids say and do through the day, if I remember! I've been married to my husband for over 8 years and sometimes it still feels like we are newlyweds and sometimes it feels like we've been married for over a hundred years ;) I hope you enjoyed your time at my party and I hope that you will come by again, soon!

Oh one last thing...my friend Belinda has an online store called Bellissimama. She is giving a discount of 15% off any purchase from her site by letting her know you got there from my blog!

As for the prizes I would like to win my top 6 are:
#61 from The Very Cool Lunchbox or #119 Personalized Lunchbox
#19 Klean Kanteen Sippy Cup or #137 BPA free Sippy Cup sampler
#29 Baby Girl Bracelets
#63 $50 Gift Certificate
I would also enjoy winning #8, any of the blog designs #24, #45, #67 or any of the stationary prizes such as #40 and #57

Your children are adorable. I particularly love the Spider Man picture. Glad to have come to your party. :-)

ValleyGirl said...

Holy smokes, SOMEONE turned my computer speakers way loud and I got the fright of my life when your music kicked in!!! You've got a great party going on here -- I love the live entertainment!! That's one thing I kinda forgot to mention on my blog -- my kids. Isn't that awful? I have a Peanut, too, but she's my 6-yr old. The younger one's nickname is Fidget, cuz, well, she can't sit still for more than a few minutes at a time.

Thanks for stopping by my party! I hope to see you again soon!

Okay, I am just cracking up. My 6yo has lived in his buzz lightyear suit for the past 3 years. It is so small on him now that the seams are ripping. And my 7yo lives in a spiderman suit! Too funny!

You said "I have 11 siblings" That must heaps of fun, especially when you were a kid! What number are you?
We love living in a big family to.

Those pics are fabulous! I am not allowing my boys to see them because if they see that Spiderman costume they will want it IMMEDIATELY.
So cute!

Happy blog party! I guess it's over now, but I'm still returning visits.

Sher :) said...

Yummmm, I love smooties!! And what a lovely family.
Thanks for inviting me to your party.

Enjoy!

Jessie said...

I enjoyed my visit. Your photos are precious! Your blog is very fun.

TCC said...

You are a busy mama!

I'm so impressed with all the partying you've been able to do. I didn't get to as many blogs as I hoped to and I only have two boys! Oh well. Thankfully they leave the links up...I plan to continue to check out some blogs over the next week or so. We'll see.

Anyway, thanks for stopping by. It was wonderful to meet you and the smoothie was quite inviting as well.

Hi Tonya, Sorry to stop by so late (we had quite a week at our house including a broken elbow, surgery and an overnight stay at the hospital for my princess) - but things are better now and I wanted to let you know that .....

YOU WON! This summer I will be sending you a copy of my children's book, My Name is Not Isabella.

Yeay, Confetti streamers, balloons released, doves released (okay, no doves, we were too cheap for doves).

Please contact me to let me know your mailing address. jenfos at yahoo dot com.

Remember that the books are not available yet. They are currently at the printers, so probably over the summer, so it will be a nice reminder of a great blog party. I hope that if you like it when you get it, you will spread the news.

If you forgot what I am talking about, come back and visit me at:

Enjoy
Jen
