Peonies & Parties...

Thank you for all the compliments and kind words about the treehouse. It meant a lot to Chris (and me). I hope you don't grow tired of it, because there will always be something going on in our special structure.

When my peonies are blooming, that means Josie's birthday is nearly here.

This peony bush is one that we transplanted from my grandparents home.

I wish we would have taken more plants
before we sold their house 10 years ago.

My little superhero is getting ready to celebrate her special 5th birthday on Friday. Emma's last day of school is a half day, and I'm taking the afternoon off from work. We're heading to Josie's preschool with special birthday treats, capes and the ability to leap over tall buildings.

Have a super Wednesday!
I need to get busy
with more superhero party ideas.

Beautiful Peonies! and I will never tire of looking at the tree house! I may become more and more jealous - but never get tired of it!
Can't wait to see what all you have lined up for Josie's fun birthday celebration!

Both peonies and Josie are beauties and I will never get tired of tree house posts!

I wish I had the proper conditions to grow peonies!

Oh my goodness, the shot of Josie leaping those buildings is just too dang cute for words. I love that she's into super heros! The peonies are gorgeous too, and so special that you have a sweet piece of your grandmother to see bloom every year.

I expect tree house posts for every major and minor holiday. Can't wait to see it for Christmas. Have fun jumping over tall buildings. You should do kid's birthday parties as a business - you are very creative.

Loving your peonies. I am hoping to get some in the ground here.

Those peony pics are PERFECT!! We had lots of peony bushes when we lived in Illinois when I was a kiddo, and I still remember them. Too fun to watch everyone grow up with peony pictures!!
