Madison is excited! She turns 3 years old today! She was supposed to arrive via a scheduled c-section on Halloween, but the umbilical cord was wrapped around her neck, causing her heart rate to fall, so she was delivered a little early--all 7 pounds of her.
Madison is having a Mickey Mouse Clubhouse birthday party on Saturday. That is what kind of party that she asked for. Her second request was that we have Mickey Mouse ears for the party hats, which her mama bought!
Her third request was that she wanted Minnie and Mickey mouse characters in the decorations. Her mama was going to use just Minnie Mouse since Madison is a girl, but no--Madison had to have some Mickey in there, too--and Donald, Goofy, and the whole gang.
Madison, her mama, and I went to Party City today. That place is huge! They had any kind of party decorations that you can imagine. There were aisles and aisles of prizes, balloons, games, decorations. We stayed in there for a long time. One aisle and the whole back part of the store was even devoted to Halloween. I've never seen so many costumes and such ugly monsters.
All party items have been purchased. The only thing left to do is bake some cupcakes, decorate the annex (we chose to use our church annex due to a 50% chance of rain), get some party games planned, and pick up the cakes--yes, there are two of them, a Minnie and a Mickey. One cake wasn't enough to feed everyone--and we couldn't have Minni without Mickey anyway!
One last thing, we even managed to find a little outfit for Madison to wear that had Minnie Mouse and Daisy Duck on it. She had her choice of magenta or purple, and she chose purple. How often do you coordinate with your party decorations???
Now for the part that is fun! It's time for the Friday Giveaway. Today's giveaway is for a lucky little girl.
The prize is a velvet art picture of a mermaid and two packs of Disney Princess playing cards--Old Maid and Crazy Eights.
All that you have to do to have a chance to win this prize is tell me one fact from the above post. Example: There is a 50% chance of rain on the day of the party.
You cannot use the same fact more than one time. That means if the person before you used it and you use it, yours won't count. There is a lot of information in this post, so there are a lot of different facts to choose from. I count at least 34.
You can comment up to 3 times for 3 entries, but remember, if a fact is repeated, it won't count as an entry.
The contest will end on Sunday night, October 25, at 12:00 EST. I will draw a winner and announce them on Monday's post. I appreciate everyone who stops by this blog--especially those who are regular visitors. Thanks so much! Good luck everyone, and have a great weekend!
