let's make noise!

we celebrated david's 6th birthday today with a few close friends. what's david's favorite thing to do?? make NoIsE! so that's what we did...i made a 'banging wall' with pots pans and mixers strung from a clothesline.
i got this idea from soulemama's new book.

grandma and grandpa were able to stay for the party which was a huge treat. plus, my dad made his delicious potato salad...yum!


i found some simple wood instruments online, then the kids took them home as favors.

cupcakes, which matty helped me make and david thoroughly enjoyed!

lily in the sandbox.

there, he is! the birthday boy!!

all the kids were so 'helpful' as david opened his gifts. and he made out like a bandit!
thank you sweet friends for helping us celebrate.
happy birthday david!!

Happy 6th Birthday, David!! You could post 100 pictures of him, and I'd still want to see more. He's so cute and sweet. I hope he had a fantastic day... with all of the cool things his mom did for his party, I'm sure he did. :o)

Awesome ideas for a party! I like the "Banging Wall" idea and your cool party favors.
My oldest turns eight tomorrow, and I'm far too pregnant to manage a party this year. We just had a couple of his friends over for a sleepover.

I loved the pots and pans idea. The musical instruments to give away were pretty neat too! I love your jewelry! What got you started to making jewelry like this? Ive made beaded jewelry but this is different than anything ive seen and I love the personalization. Cant wait to give my hubby his gift that I got from you :)
