Big Big Plans!!

Today is my father-in-love's birthday. He is 80 years old! Can I just tell ya that I absolutely LOVE this man? He is a strong honorable man who loves his family and his God and his country. He was a member of the 82nd Airborne division in the US Army and is so proud of that fact that he does not let a day go by that he is not wearing SOMETHING on his person saying so!! I am so honored that he calls me his daughter in law. Not to mention how grateful I am for the FABULOUS job he did raising his son!!!!

So, in honor of the big day we are having a big 'ol party. And I mean BIG!!! Too big for a house, we have to throw it in the park! That's how big it is!!!

And then tomorrow - seeing as how everyone will be in town, there is a graduation party for our niece Chelsea. And, since everyone will STILL be in town, there is a baby shower for another niece Heather on Sunday. She is expecting her first baby in November and has herself the cutest little baby belly!!! She was probably about a size 4 to begin with, so it is ALL belly and soooooo cute!

So, a b-day party, grad party and baby shower all in three days. That is a LOT of food my friends! Not to mention that all three events are outside, so that is a LOT of mosquitoes too. Any one have any ideas on how to keep my girlie safe with out putting poison on her face all day, every day for three days?!?!?!

I probably won't be around much this weekend, so have a great one and stay safe and cool!!

XOXOXOXOXOX

4 of ya left some love:

Have you ever tried Skin So Soft by Avon for mosquitoes? It works pretty well for me....:))

Yep skin so soft works well, but the last time I used it, it was a bit greasy. That was a while back though. Maybe its a little different now. Have a great weekend!
