A Funny Thing Happened Last Night

You may remember last month's annual Triple Birthday Party Luah...
That's every July.
In August, a Fiesta for my daughter's birthday happens here!
It will be on Saturday the 25th, and I love to decorate.
A colorful Fiesta it is!

My daughter and I collected materials.
I started making a bright orange Pom,
thinking I'd just see how many I could make that evening
and perhaps the next today (today now).

But a funny thing happened on the way to...

well, in the middle of my Pom, someone outside called to me to come look
at my Ellie Pup romping and playing with a new little friend.
I ran outside with my big, bright orange Pom,
(I couldn't exactly set it down or it'd smoosh!)
 and well, the rest is history as they say.

Neighbors were out front, and seeing me running barefoot
outside with a giant orange sphere was too much!
A Pom Party broke out!!!

Look what we did last night!







I hung them in my laundry room, on hangers!!
Best my laundry room has EVER looked!!


My son, Drew, even supervised...and helped his sister tie! 
Yay, Drew!




These, above, are smaller ones, hanging from my drying rack!


Ellie and I were exhausted after hours of laughing...

We wished the party was last night...
but then again, the best is yet to come!

What are your weekend plans?
