It's amazing what you can do with Dollar Tree tablecloths and some furniture rearrangement.
The girls walked through the curtained entrance like
they were walking onto a dancefloor in high school.
I made a cake, one of those cakes that look prettier in the recipe, but still tasted decent.
Charley liked it.
MINUTE TO WIN IT!!!
Keep the Balloon up for 60 seconds without using your hands!!
Move the cookie to your mouth without using your hands!!
Bouncing pencils and ping pong balls into cups.
I decided on the games and gathered the ingredients. Then I used the sketch pad to write up the titles and instructions. Chuck drew the pictures to accompany the text.
I like for birthdays to be a group effort.
Ping Pong Toss
Empty tissue box, attached to the waist via ace bandage, full of ping pong balls.
The games were a TON of fun. Charley had a blast.
I swear. I swear she did.
HAPPY BIRTHDAY TO YOU CHARLEY BURNS!!!

Another hairstyle win for Mom, but a miss for Charley.
She didn't like it.
WHY, WHY, WHY I ask you.
When it comes to hair, me and Charley rarely ever agree.
I think she needs to maintain it occasionally, e.g., brushing, shampooing.
She does not.
She thinks I could be a little gentler.
She's probably right about that.
YEAH THAT'S WHAT I SAID! FIRST DAY OF THIRD GRADE.
This blog/scrapbook is only like 4-5 months behind.
Chin up a little bit Charley.
Umm, no. Down a little?
My little weirdo. She's struggling with the poses. I'm struggling with the iphone camera.
I overexposed this one. Charley actually does have eyebrows.
Sweet little no eyebrow Charley. I just want to squeeze her.
We've got another great teacher this year. Charley's an incredible child. Straight A's.
