mom's 50th

it was my mom's birthday last thursday. and not until mid-december did it dawn on me that it was my mom's 50th birthday! with christmas being such a busy time of year, we didn't even think about the details of the party until a week before. not like me. usually i like to start planning well in advance because i don't like being rushed. but with the help of everyone, we were able to pull the party together & it really turned out to be cute & fun for everyone. here are the invites...

not the best quality picture, but it's my family & i can't not post it. i like how everyone coordinates with the party decor except me. why i decided to wear a green striped shirt, i don't know.

How cute! I love the banner, I may just copy it. I am glad I found your blog through Denise. Looks like things are good and you are an adorable pregnant lady by the way!

The party looks like it turned out great. You always do such a great job putting things together and making it all looks good. I think I might have to hire you to plan my kids parties since I have zero talent in that area.

Oh, and could you look any cuter pregnant?
