Savannah's Rodeo

If you're not a big fan of a creative and crafty, Pinterest loving mom then prepare yourself to stop...but before you do know that these parties are not planned for me to climb any top mom ladder. They are for creating memories for our precious little girl that we thought we'd never have, and for our friends and family to enjoy in the fun and uber celebration!

Like it or not it's in my blood! If there is anyone to blame it sure isn't Pinterest, it's my amazing Mama L, aka Nana. She's been crafting and hosting dinner parties for as long as I can remember. She's the most creative person I know and I sure as heck couldn't put on these fun parties without my partner in crime.

Below are a few pictures from Little S' 2nd Birthday Party. Everyone had so much fun!

OK, so I was determined to make stick ponies for this party. I had searched for them and found that they were too expensive to by 40, yes 40, of them. So I decided it would be a great idea to make them. Thank goodness for my mom who was willing to spend hours with me putting these things together. The socks were from the Dollar Store, the eyes, hair, ribbons and stuffing came from Hobby Lobby and JoAnns and the wood sticks were cut and sanded from scrap wood at Papa's office. The kids loved them and it made my day to see them paying with them. It was even better to get texts and pics from friends days after the party of their kids playing with their ponies at home! So worth the work!

I hope you have enjoyed this party as much as we did! Everyone had a blast...and now it's on to planning party #3. I might give myself a few months off before the next one, but it will all start again soon!

About Me

My photo
My mom, referred to as Mama L, and I have been talking about starting a blog for quite some time now. We are always trying new recipes and making new crafts - always being told by friends and family that we need to sell our creations. Instead of selling them we've decided to share our crafty ideas, yummy recipes along with our funny adventures here on our blog. Please follow us and enjoy. We are always trying to find new places to explore, new recipes to cook for our families and most of all we're just having fun!
