A Starry Night Celebration...

Goodie bagsGoody bags that were filled with goodies from our Star pull string pinata, including home made star crayons... Star crayons

Star pillowsAnd, each kiddo got to leave with their own soft and hugable star pillow.

It was a great party!  So much fun! 

I always feel a bit crazy when I am planning parties, like "why the heck am I doing this?!" 

But, the truth is, I really like to do it!  It's so much fun!  It makes me happy.  And, honestly, I would be doing all of this whether or not I had this blog...b/c there were three birthdays before I started this blog where I "over extended" myself!  Ha Ha!  It's just fun for me! 

Oh, but I think Brad might plan business trips out of town the week before a party just so he doesn't have to get involved in my craziness anymore.

Anywho, I do have a few DIYs to share from the party...hopefully this week...Have a great day!
