The Party!!!!























Here are some pictures of the boy's John Deere birthday party. They had a blast.







I tried to stay within $200 for the party and gifts. We had 31 guests. We had soft drinks and water served ice cold in the metal wash tub. We had cake, nuts and chips and dip to eat. We purchased the boy's their own separate small cakes and one larger one to serve from.

Here's the breakdown:
Food and drinks $55
Decorations $55
Thanks you's, invites and postage $20
Gifts $70

The pedal tractors and wagons are from my parents. That is them in the picture with the boys.

Oh my goodness, theres a motorized toy tractor like this down at out Coastal farm stre. It cost 3oo bucks an Peter pines over it every time we go down there. What an absolutely cool gift!

Marva, you really did a great job with the decorations. I just love the little guys in their farmer t shirts. Way to go with the budgeting!

Wow- these adorable little boys were tiny preemies? They look so sturdy and healthy!

Sounds like you did a great job keeping your costs down- I know what a challenge it can be having thrown a few parties myself.

And that tractor is wonderful- it makes me kindof sad that those days are behind me.

How did the weather turn out last night? I hope it wasn't as bad as they were predicting.
