The month of May

The month of May is a hectic month at CasaR. With Norways national day just passed, I have my hands full with planing and getting ready for the birthday of SweetieS and SweetieL. As they both are born on the same day it’s double the trouble fun.

As part of getting CasaR ready for the hoards of family and friends coming over, I have tried to organize our hallway. After SweetieL began kindergarten…it has been a constant mess…well some of it anyways…the shoes to start with…

I upgraded our existing IKEA setup. The old setup was two Tjusig shoe racks combined. I just added a third rack (remember to secure them together) and on top a Elvarli shelf on top. I added a few Grundtal hooks on the top rack so the girls can hang their jackets when they get in the door.

May 17th is Norways constitution day…so we all dressed up and went out. It is a tradition in my neighbourhood to have a May 17th parade….so we joined that. The girls mood was not dampened by the few raindrops that came falling down.

This week is full of events @CasaR. So when I get my head over water I’ll post an update on the girls birthday celebrations….

No way back now…

Yesterday the invites went out to SweetieS birthday celebration with her kindergarten friends. Am I the only one a little nervous when sending out 17(!) invites? I have been researching and doodling around what theme. After checking with SweetieS we landed on My Little Pony theme.

I had fun making last years invites. (the post about last year “happening” is here) So again, thanx to Pintrest I got hold of a template I wanted to use for the invites. The original door hanger is available here. I did some editing on the originals to make it more “invite friendly”. The backside is mirrored and with party details.

Last year we had the kids over for 2 hours. Those are two intens hours….but worth it. SweetieS was very pleased with everything. The difference this time is that we are also inviting “the boys”. Hopefully it won’t get too out of hand….

Still two weeks until the event…so until then no more pictures. I know some of you mums attending read my blog, so no spoilers.

- how do you plan your kids birthday parties?
- do you have any smart tips to share?
