6 hours and counting...

On Saturday, Chris and I spent the day cleaning in preparation for Josie's birthday party this afternoon. 

We have lots Josie's 1st grade classmates coming to visit our house for the first time and my husband has a tendency to give tours (some of the rooms weren't exactly tour worthy).  
Here are a few more sneak peek pictures.



Our weather for today is cold and blustery, but the rain is finally done.  Most of the games (mining for gold, horse shoes, antelope lasso..etc. are outdoors.  I did set up an area in our sunroom for indoor pictures.  The cats have enjoyed smelling the straw.

My sister reminded me that even cowboys have to endure all kinds of weather conditions. 

We're at less than 6 hours and counting until the party!!!  Yee-haw!!

It's been years since I did birthday parties. Do the parents come as well? In Utah, the kids are just dropped off and picked up later. I gave a party one year in El Paso for my daughter...I wasn't prepared to have all the parents show up and stay. I didn't have anything for them. It was pretty embarrassing. I wish I could go back in time for a do-over...lol! I really enjoy hearing about your daughter's parties!

I think six hours has probably passed since you posted and you are probably breathing a deep sign of relief and satisfaction. Am sure it was awesome!
