It's almost October and I'm officially swamped with projects that are all due By the end of October and early November. The phrase "bit off more than I can chew" comes to mind...
Elaina's One Year Birthday Party- Theme: Cupcakes!
Yeah, I know the theme is not quite so original. But I've been dying to throw a cupcake party for Elaina and I'm thinking that this is going to be the one birthday that I can. At least for several years. And cupcake decor is in right now. So it's easy to score cute extras. So far, I've just begun on the crafty decor. I'm posting a photo of a few sneak peeks! All I can say is that there will be tulle, yarn, and of course, CUPCAKES!
Elaina's Baby Book-
Along with Elaina's birthday, I'm really trying to finish her baby book so I can have it at her party. I'm still very unsure about this one. By the time I finish it, I have to buy the pages. And each page is a little over $3. So I'll be paying a hefty price there. I'm working on January 2012. And of course I'll be ending it on Elaina's birthday. From there, I'll begin our family scrapbooks from here on out.
Picture in a Picture-
We have started a tradition with the birth of Elaina. Every year, on Elaina's birthday we will take a picture while holding a big picture of us on her previous birthday. After you reach the third picture, it's pretty neat because you have all the birthday pictures in one big photo. So I have our picture from when Elaina was born. I just have to order it and find a frame at Hobby Lobby.
Halloween costume-
Yesterday, I finally decided on Elaina's first Halloween costume. I wanted it to be original and I wasn't planning on actually having to make it myself, but that's the way it worked out. :) No details here. I'm really gonna try to keep it underwraps until the big day just in case I can't pull it off. :)

And on top of all that, I have homework AND Christmas will be here before you know it! I've gotta start shopping!
