Anyway, so as a co-room mom (our school has 4 room moms per class, I think that's a lot especially considering there are 5 classes in each grade= 20 room moms per grade!) I have to organize one party a year and wouldn't you know it- I got the fall party, which is coming up fairly soon. I'm a little nervous because I'm not *exactly* a whiz when it comes to things like this and of course I want it to be fabulous. I'm going to e-mail Chloe's teacher as the date approaches but if anyone has any party ideas or links for party websites I'd be happy to see them. I should say peanut free party ideas. There are kids with peanut allergies in her class so the only time they can have peanutty stuff is at lunch. The poor peanut allergy kids have to sit at their own table. It may not be a big deal now but I really feel for them in middle and high school.
And I guess that I'm done rambling for the day. But I'll leave you with a couple of photos (I know you're just *dying* for more plant life photos) since my blog also serves as a journal for me to remember what I planted and how it fared.
My Chianti sunflowers finally bloomed. Very autumnal, no?I got some inspiration from Ms. Tee and found an unexpected vase for some cosmos and for some poor parsley that accidentally got caught in the window when I closed it this morning.
And the two little princesses. I couldn't resist. Halle has insisted on wearing her princess dress anytime she's at home lately. And Chloe has discovered the joy in being picture-goofy. I love it.
