Party at my place!

Saturday:I love to entertain - and it's been a long time since I've done anything. This weekend our house was a party home.

Saturday we had a Wii party with another family. Back in March of this year I found a store that had one Wii game for sale. I heard they were pretty rare to buy and a lot of fun. This was a huge expense for our family - in fact, I've never played a video in my life until this purchase. This game system is family friendly and just a whole lot of fun! If you get a chance to go to a Wii party don't turn it town.


Sunday evening we had a Bon Voyage Party for my step-son John. He leaves for boot camp with the US Navy this Wednesday. The weather was perfect - a hot summer day. We had an ice-cream social. I enjoyed serving up lots of sweet toppings including, chocolate sauce, strawberry sauce, butterscotch, crushed kit kat bars, crushed oreo cookies, gummy worms, bananas, nuts, whip cream, and marshmallows. Did I mention the ice cream flavors? - rainbow sherbet, mint chocolate chip, vanilla and chocolate marshmallow.
Did I go over the top? :)

I love an excuse to use my longaberger!

Do you have any party plans to end the summer?

Ah, I knew they were longaberger baskets! I use to sell them! I love the idea of an ice cream social...your toppings looked great! Please thank your step-son for serving...I'm sure boot camp won't be easy.

We threw a birthday party for our middle son's 8th birthday, which was a blast.

We did not, how ever, have this yummy ice cream set up you have here. My stomach is officially growling.

Sharon, I used to sell Longaberger too! I was my best customer!

Lu, we have so much ice cream left over - it's going to be dessert for the next few weeks!
