My Mama Always Said


"At every party, there's a pooper, and that's why we invited you... Party Pooper.... Party Pooper...," my mama used to sing when one of us was not being very fun. I still sing it to this day. Do you know this song? Don't spend your life being a party pooper when you can be the life of the party instead! The greatest thing of all is being the life of the party without any help from alcohol. Those are the true fun people! Be the life of the party this holiday season... Mama Henley is going to try!

I've always had that attitude. Even when I was a child. In the classroom -- not so appropriate there tho! LOL

And as for the Thank Yous, I must confess... we haven't actually started them yet. Tonight they will be signed, sealed and deliered!

Very wisely spoken. I might just have that quote/song made into a wall hanging and put it where it can be visible every day.
Isn't it funny how songs that our mothers used to sing when we were children stick with us? I hated it when I was a child, but my mother used to sing "You can't always get what you want" from the Rolling Stones to us. I laugh at it now because I find myself singing it to my children.

Oh that is too funny, sounds like something my Grandmother would say!

My Mama taught me this too and my children seem to love a good party. In addition I was taught if you were invited to a party - go - what if you threw a party and no one came.

Hey... I'm answering your question about my blog design. Guilty as charged! Ha ha... www.shabbyblogs.com has the free layout. I thought the yellow tied in with my Golden Day theme!

I do, also, love the painted tile: A Friend Loves at All Times. That is just a picture from an online catalog that I buy from www.whimsicalgrace.com. So, viola, here is my creation!

Thanks cute friend!!!

I'm never the party pooper! And yes, I have been known to sing that song, too! All the best to you and yours in the new year.
