As you can see I'm trying to get caught up their birthdays before another birthday comes and I am even more behind.

Mattie's seventh birthday fell on a Sunday this year so we decided to go with the Saturday before for a party to celebrate it. Mattie informed me she didn't want a party this year but would rather have two girlfriends spend the night.... hmmmm I thought is she really old enough to have a sleep over?? Just two girls???? The more I thought about it the more I like it! Fewer children... and older children was a great idea! I have noticed Mattie getting into singing the words to her favorite songs and who sings certain songs. So I thought about a "Rock Star" party and suggested it and she loved the idea. My big surprise would be her gift of a little microphone and amplifier and let the girls sing Hanna Montanna songs off of Youtube. So I put together very quickly a Rock Star party after a quick trip to the dollar store. We made "hit records" decorated glittery guitars, made our own pizza's, had a karoke night, decorated pillow cases, and of course colored! . Daddy was a dj for the party and finally had to hit the sack, the next day after pancakes he went hunting, while I took the kids to see "Tangled" in 3D! We all loved the movie! Got back to Hooker for a little down-time before going to the "Christmas Parade" in Hooker where the kids always get to see Santa! This party was probably more fun for me because I love to sing and since there was just two friends they were so easy to manage and could do everything on their own after I gave them a project! Loved this weekend it was so fun and I'm so proud of Mattie and how she is growing up. I have noticed that she is very thoughtful and perceptive of people, she really cares and wants to do special things for people.
