This weekend went by sooooo fast, and with the holidays in full swing I know that slowing down will not be an option anytime soon. On Friday, I finished prepping for Kellen's party and grabbed dinner with my dad before coming for to relax with Ron and Kellen.
Saturday was Kellen's party and since I prepped a lot the night before (and the help of my mom) there was not too much to do. I decided on a farm theme for Kellen's party, and we had lots of great treats for our guests. I had a hot dog bar including all the traditional toppings plus some homemade chili.
Shovels and Forks?
Watering Hole, Farm Fresh Eggs, Vegetable Garden, Dairy Barn and Hay Flakes!
Tractor Wheels and Cheese, Farm Fresh Peas and Horse Treats!
The whole spread!
My birthday boy is a chocolate fan and celebrated with a chocolate cake (the little smash cake is in the background)!
Happy Birthday Kellen!
Even big boys like little toys!
Saturday night we relaxed with pizza and played with new toys. On Sunday we watched the Packer game (boo hiss) before heading home. I did a little baking and started organizing my gifts to wrap. I also need to get my Christmas cards in the mail this week..... This photo of Kellen pretty much summarizes the end of my weekend....
This week I am finishing wrapping, sending holiday cards, baking and a little last minute shopping. I also have a cookie exchange with a few girlfriends on Wednesday- I am bringing the Mint Hot Cocoa Cookies I just posted. This weekend Ron graduates!!!!!!! We are going to the ceremony and then grabbing some dinner afterwards. The following day it is our holiday celebration with my family and I always get excited to see our family and have fun! We have a busy week ahead of us, but I love this time of year and Kellen makes our holiday so much fun.
