Psalm 100

A psalm. For giving grateful praise.

1 Shout for joy to the LORD, all the earth.
2 Worship the LORD with gladness;
come before him with joyful songs.
3 Know that the LORD is God.
It is he who made us, and we are his
we are his people, the sheep of his pasture.

4 Enter his gates with thanksgiving
and his courts with praise;
give thanks to him and praise his name.
5 For the LORD is good and his love endures forever;
his faithfulness continues through all generations

Candy Land, Part 2

The Cake

With cupcakes sprayed all different colors to represent the spaces on the game board.
There was a chocolate fountain to represent Gloppy's Chocolate Swamp,
peanuts and peanut brittle to represent Gramma Nutt at Peanut Acres,
Licorice for the Licorice Forest, and the dastardly Lord Licorice,
and gingerbread for the Gingerbread Forest.
Also, if you look closely you will see lollypops for Lollypop Woods, candy canes and starlight mints for the Peppermint Forest, Gumdrop Pass, and gumballs and other candies for King Kandy's Castle.
At the end of the party I loaded treat bags FULL of all this candy for the kids to take home.

Candy Land, Part 1

Last week I left you with shots of what would become the main decorations for my son's 6th birthday party.
Clearly, the theme was Candy Land. Well, here they all are in their panted glory along with some of the other decorations I put out.
You gotta love friends. I mentioned to one friend what I was doing and she volunteered her stash of candy themed Christmas decorations.
The tablescapes are made from a mix of things I owned and her borrowed goods.
She even loaned me candy garland that looked like Life Savers, which I hung in the doorways.

CSN Stores

Recently I was contacted by CSN Stores to do a promotion on my blog for their website.
The incentive?
$20 to spend for my time.
Well, okay....
Seriously, if you do much online browsing or shopping, this would be the place to do it. CSN Stores sells EVERYTHING from contemporary coffee tables to projector screens to wheel chairs.

So, what am I going to get?

It will look GREAT in Jonah's newly painted room.
You know, when I finish painting it.

Take Out The Trash!
