I'm in FULL Party Planning Mode
for Miss Priss' SECOND Birthday Party!

Which means, I'll be acting like a crazy person from now until then!

(TWO months and counting until then)

I'm  absolutely  in LOVE with the theme...
it's VERY fitting!

I'm not revealing just yet... but I'll be posting clues until then!

Miss Priss mainly, & family!

Kenley has a little pink Christmas tree for her room too!

"Miracle on 34th Street"

16. Favorite character from any Christmas Movie.
"Susan" from "Miracle on 34th Street"
