First, SUCKER, Yes I am a sucker for kittens. Last week we got two new kittens. My friend was needing a home for some kittens. I told her if they are males then I will take two.
So, unfortunately, she had two males left. They are really cute and my kids love them. I have repeated many times, "Take the kittens outside", "They are outside cats". I am not doing a litter box...NO WAY!!!

Yesterday, my second daughter turned eight years old. It was her turn this year to have a friend birthday party. So, after finding birthday invitations at the D.I. for .50 cents we took around invitations to her friends. (We had to keep this birthday simple & Cheap)
My budget was $100. For $100 I was able to buy her 4 gifts and buy the accessories I needed to pull off her party.
Can't forget the presents...She doesn't look excited at all.
After the games we did the blow out of the candles. I made cupcakes for her party.
After we sang and blew out the candles we played a game of "cake walk". When the number they stood on was called out they could go get their cup cake and eat it. They had fun doing this game also.
This game was a big hit...Bobbing for apples. Had everything at home to use for this game.
After the party almost everyone went back to play with this game.
This game was ring toss using left over soda bottles and diving rings.
I learned a valuable lesson doing this party...It isn't how much you spend on a party, it is the memory you are creating and the fun you can have by making it simple. Simple is good.
