My Favorite Quotes:

A person's a PERSON no matter how small... -Dr. Seuss

I am a little pencil in the hand of God who is sending a love letter to the world. - Mother Teresa

The aim of education should be to teach us rather how to THINK, than WHAT to think- rather to improve our minds, so as to enable us to think for ourselves, than to load the memory with the thoughts of other men. - James Beattie

I have been dying to post this!  I am throwing a birthday party for Scarlett (she will be 3 this week) on Saturday with approx.  ten little 2,3, and 4 year olds attending.  I gave Scarlett a choice of different party themes, Dora, Princess, Reindeer, Snowman, and she chose Reindeer-- I was surprised she didn't want the Princess party-isn't that usually what every little girl picks?
But I was excited too because I have so many fun ideas for the party!

We made reindeer invitations- you need- Red pom-poms (for nose), Google eyes, brown construction paper (cut in a heart shape), hole punch, and brown or black chenille stems
1.  Cut a heart shape out of brown construction
2.  Glue on Google Eyes and a cute red pom-pom nose at the bottom of the heart shape for a nose.

3. Punch a hole a the top of the heart (reindeer) and put a brown chenille stem through the hole- bend in half and twist for antlers! 
On the back I typed up a the information for the party it said:
Now Dasher, Now Dancer, Now Prancer and Vixen,
On Comet, On Cupid, on Donder, and Blitzen!
To Ruby's 3rd birthday, we're ready to go!
Rudolph's excited- see his nose glow?
(then date, time, address, etc!)

We sent out the Reindeer invites about a month ago (sent early because it is holiday season and people are busy!)
I will be sending out Part 2 in the next day or so-- it includes what I am doing for all the party festivities!
Part 3 will be the actual party and how it turned out! :)
