Had a great time celebrating Donald Duck's birthday yesterday - probably better than he did! My friend Allison donned a fantastic pin from 2007 to top her blue and white.
We had dinner and watched Mickey Mouse shorts with the birthday duck. "Down the Hatch" featured him inside and out.
And we played bingo and Perler beads. Why not - the oldest loves bingo. Last month, while we were waiting for his kindergarten program, he made his Grammy and Pa play 27 rounds of it. Turned this place into a retirement community clubhouse. That's how we roll!
My son wishing it was his birthday.
My house was, and still is, a cluttered mess, but if I waited for my house to be a showplace, we'd be stuck playing bingo with the cats. Open your home with all its lived-in glory and have fun this weekend!
I was crafting down to the wire to finish my shirt, still stitching the bow Thursday night. It was down to the wire because I had to make a Mr. T magnet last weekend.

Mr. T pities the fool who wouldn't make a Perler bead Mr. T as soon as they saw one.
Father's Day is next weekend - are you ready? If not, I've got a round of the internet's more novel offerings to go with my posts of May 7th and 19th. Start your printer!
Some mustache-themed offerings are useful holders for the contents of his pockets or his favorite treats, from "Thoughts from Alice" and "Modern Parents Messy Kids:"
Several printable sheets give your kids the ability to weigh in on the best things about their dad (although, since my oldest did something similar at school recently, he might enjoy it more Mad Libs style). This one from "What Moms Love" is very detailed.
And kids' creations can be incorporated into a larger piece, like this snippet of one of the gifts I made. I had my oldest draw a picture for me to burn into a wooden piece. It's tough and useable, but with feeling. Dads can relate.
