It really is starting to look like Christmas as the holidays are right around the corner! With Thanksgiving this week and Christmas right to follow along with birthdays all around in our family we are left with a VERY busy season! We have been so thankful for friends and family and customers alike who help us celebrate this time of year.
It is amazing to be out and about and watch these amazing events in families and to be a part of their magical time! This year my son’s birthday is on Thanksgiving which is wonderful and kind of painful at the same time. We were lucky to be able to celebrate his birthday this last weekend and have a party for him. It is quite a different perspective from the planning side and was so much work (but totally worth it)! We did a Spiderwick themed party which is a horrible idea as there is virtually nothing out there with the theme of Spiderwick. We had a great time though and decided not to do any face painting, airbrush tattoos or balloon twisting, ironically my boys don’t like any of it! We thoroughly enjoyed our time as a family and I highly recommend everyone else do the same for their parties. That is why it is so much easier to bring someone in to do a lot of the entertainment or planning as you get to enjoy the day so much more! We have another birthday in just a few weeks for my older son and his will be a Star Wars themed party, at least I won’t have any trouble finding items for that theme!
So as the holidays come near remember to take a breather, enjoy your family and try to just slow down, these years and times go by so quickly and before you know it they will be gone!
From our family to your, have a wonderful and thankful Thanksgiving and a blessed Christmas with those you love and those you tolerate all close by.
We wish you a very merry Christmas from the bottom of our paint covered hearts!
