I finished something!

Yes, I sure did! The snowman candle mat is done! I loooooove it.

It was fun and easy to make. The pattern was really well written and it came out even cuter than I expected. Aren't the puffy snowman fun?

 Here it is with the candle taken off.

I think I'm going to have to visit The Pattern Cupboard again to get another pattern. This was just a great project!
Saturday was Mason's 7th birthday! On Friday I brought vanilla cupcakes in to his class...

His birthday started with opening gifts from his Aunts Karen and Kathleen, then from us, then we got ready for his party at 2. We had 13 kids and it went well.  They did a craft (pumpkin magnets)...

Had cake...

Played games...

Opened gifts, and played outside. Then we got pizza for dinner, his request. This weekend is Annabelle's birthday and party...but thank goodness it's going to be at a Bounce House, not at home.
Donna is having a blogiversary over at Sugar, Spice, and Southern Life. Be sure you enter her giveaway, she is going all out with the gifties!! Donna has been a great friend since we met through our blogs. Our tastes are extremely similar and we find that we have lots of  the same stuff. She's just the sweetest person and a very kind soul.

Have a great day!
