Baby Sis

Okay, so my baby isn't a baby anymore, or so she keeps telling me. "Momma, I am 4 now. I am a big girl and can do it all by myself." Of course you can, princess!
She was so excited for her party last night. All day long she kept wanting to help me set up, help with the cake, help with this and that. I haven't seen her this excited except for Christmas. It was her first big kid party, and she wanted to have a slumber party soooo bad. We decided to have a pretend slumber party and we decorated the table like a bed. Complete with pillows and stuffed animals. The bar was also a bed, minus the animals. There were streamers everywhere and it smelled of fresh baked cake. I don't know why, since I baked the cake the night before.

She came up to me after we had everything set up and told me thank you for making everything so beautiful mommy. Of course, I melted. It made all the late nights and stress just float away. That's all I ever wanted for her special day, was for her to have a great birthday.

And you know, for 4 year olds they sure know how to act at a slumber party. They were in the bedroom, door closed, my 80's music blaring and there was about 10 different things going on at the same time. It was so stinking cute! They had a pillow fight, played musical pillows, made homemade slipper socks and were sent home with a scary book, glow in the dark bracelet and a toothbrush. They all seemed to have a really good time.

One of those days

Do you ever just have one of those days where you feel like any little thing is going to set you off and you are either going to bite someones head off or cry like a little baby? Well, today was my day like that. I feel like I have been having a lot of these lately and I don't really know why. Jeff seems to think that I am stressed out, but what on earth do I have to be stressed about?!? Seriously. The world according to Autumn is just a little hectic now, with birthdays coming up, but for the most part I don't seem to have that much on my plate. Or do I?

Let's see...CX is playing baseball on Friday nights in Springfield, he has practice on Monday nights, Jeff is playing softball on Tuesday and Wednesday nights. Sis has a big birthday party coming up and so does CX. (Which maybe is my stresser!) CX's birthday invitations are giving me fits! AAH! Mario Kart is driving me nuts!

No one in the big metropolis has anything for this theme, so I am having to make invitations for this shin-dig and it is pushing me to the edge. Of course, I am trying to make my son happy, and he is very particular about things. I have NO idea where he gets that from!

Or maybe I am stressed because it is very late at night and I am not sleeping well when I do sleep. Did that make any sense? I don't know. Okay, I am off to bed now. Hopefully I will get some peaceful sleep tonight so my husband will stop telling me, "You know, you look really tired and stressed. Like you hate the world or something." Thanks honey, I love you too!

Shabby blog

Well, I have been playing around with this blog thing for a while now. I am trying to make it my own, but I am having some difficulties with certain things. But I think that I am doing okay so far. What do you think?

I went to this awesome website http://www.shabbyblogs.com/ and everything that they have on their website is absolutely free to download! Yep, FREE!!! I love it! And they are super cute and some of it is fairly easy to load onto your blog and others are giving me a headache! Oh well. I will just deal for now.

If you know of any other sites that might be good for free blog stuff, please let me know. I am still a pup when it comes to blogging, but I want to make it my own. Thanks!
