Busy day

So I am going to blog this, then tell Son & Step-Daughter to get off the Wii and then I have bday cakes to bake.

We are having Baby Girl's 1st bday party tomorrow afternoon (even though it's not her bday until next wk).  This means that Son and Step-Daughter are here for the party rather than doing it when they are with their other parents.

I just got in from the grocery store... I *think* I have everything I need.

It's hard planning when I'm not exactly sure how many of my relatives are attending...

Here's the list of the invitees who are either attending or may be attending...

Baby Girl, Son, Step-Daughter, myself and Hubs
K-n-R & their two rugrats
S-girl & J
1G1D1Y and her girls (may be attending, even if without the kids)
M & her two kids (may be attending)
my birth Mom
my half-sister (and her bf?)
My two sisters and their spouses
My SIL (as my older bro is working)
My niece, her hubby and their two wee ones

I haven't heard back from: one of my nieces and her fiance, one of my nephews & his fiancee and my youngest niece.

My other niece & her fiancee and my nephew & his wife and my older brother cannot attend.

The way it works in my adoptive family is that we all try to make it out for the 1st bday, and then after that - it's not mandatory, if you know what I mean.

I'm worried I'm not going to have enough munchies...

Munchies List

  • celery
  • baby carrots
  • a tray with honeydew, cantaloupe, grapes, apple slices & pineapple
  • multigrain Tostitos
  • whole wheat Ritz crackers
  • marble cheese
  • medium cheddar cheese
  • roasted red pepper dip
  • asiago & artichoke blue menu dip
  • tatzaki blue menu dip
  • roasted garlic hummus
  • sliced raw bell peppers
  • mini pepperettes
And then because of the amount of people we are having - we are having two cakes and vanilla ice cream.

I hope it will be a nice afternoon - and I have a cute lil outfit for Baby Girl to wear.

Expect to see photos!

Have a great day, everyone!


  1. Hope you have a wonderful time at the party. My daughters party is in two weeks so I bet I will be crazy with all of this soon enough

  2. Have a wonderful time...can't wait for the pics.

    That sounds like tons of food...
