Party #1 and the Winner!

Pin It It's been a week, so I'm sufficiently recovered from the parties, and now I can post about them. My oldest and youngest have their birthdays a week apart, so party season is busy around here. This year, Jim had just gotten home and then we were out of town and then all of the end of the school year stuff happened, so my poor middle one didn't get a party. We decided that since the oldest wanted a pool party, we'd include the middle one with her and fill up the pool. It was a great idea, and she didn't mind a bit having her party four months after her birthday.

Singing happy birthday to #1.

And then some boys decided to try some synchronized swimming.

Then the next day we had Brendan's party. Pics to follow for it in a day or two. :)

AND! The winner~!! Because the comments are on two posts, I'm going with the name out of a hat method of selection. :) Please note my beautiful helper.

She stirs the name around ...

Mary Ann!

Congratulations, Mary Ann! If you'll email your address to, Micah or I will get your book out to you.

Thanks for playing, everyone! I think I'll have another book next week. I'm trying to decide if I want to part with it or not. LOL
