Birthday Madness

I love birthdays. To me they are the best day of the year. Morgan is so much like me that it is no surprise she is becoming the same way.

I have been planning her party since the day after Christmas. I asked her what kind of party she wanted (Max & Ruby or Lightning McQueen) and she chose Max & Ruby. I soon found out there is no M&R party stuff in the stores because it has never been licensed. But as usual, ebay sellers came through for me.

I got the invitations, the personalized edible cake topper and a personalized banner from three different sellers. I have great party favor ideas which are a bucket and shovel, gummy worms, marshmallows and marigold seeds. All of these are based on M&R.

And the best thing is I am making a worm cake. Yes, I , who hates baking, am going to make a cake that requires more than mixing the packaged mix and pouring it in a pan. And, I am so excited about it.

And then there is the party that wasn't supposed to be a party. Since Morgan's birthday is tomorrow and her party isn't until Saturday we are taking her to Chuck E Cheese. I invited Marly to come along and she said she couldn't wait. And then I was talking to one of our friends, Andrea, and she told me they are going out of town this weekend so they can't come to the party so I invited her along tomorrow and they are coming. Morgan can't wait. And, I can't wait to kick Roy's butt at skee ball.

Ok, I have to comment on this. Your birthday is in June and your birthday wish list went up the day after Christmas. At least Morgy only has 4 weeks to wait and plan. Now you better get started planning Carter big #1!
