Well, I just spent too much time sorting through all the pictures of all the projects I made this past month… because I did so many projects at the same time, the pictures are so mumble-jumbled, and I don’t have many full tutorials on the projects. Eeks. Oh well, right now I’ll show you some of the celebrations from this past week!
On Tuesday, my beautiful Anna turned 4!
On Tuesday she had her “best friend” over for a play date, and together we baked 24 cupcakes and one very yummy chocolate cake (that’s right! I baked with 2 four-year olds! And we had fun!) The chocolate cake was for the grandparents coming over that evening, and the cupcakes were for her class the next day.
For those who may be wondering, we did “pretend” baking!
Tuesday was also my parent’s wedding anniversary!! And distracted me totally forgot. Sorry mom, and dad!
This week was also a big deal for my hubby’s parents, as Elissa sat with them for the first time and SMILED! (Elissa is very shy, with a very large personal bubble, she will only let a select few touch her).
Thursday I hosted a Partylite Party, and among other things, I prepared a big hit. I had never made these before, but check out these Apple Nachos! They were delish!
I got the recipe from here, on Queen of Savings.
And my favorite punch, have you tried this before?
I take a can of frozen Pina Colada concentrate, a can of frozen berry juice concentrate, a 2L of Gingerale, mix and enjoy! Super Yummy.
Also on Thursday, this gorgeous babe turned 11 months old! I can’t believe she’ll be 1 next month!
On Saturday we had Anna’s “friend” party, and invited some of her closest friends/cousins, and all of their siblings! This meant baking another 24 cupcakes! Anna had a Cowboy themed party (because a few months back a neighbor gave us a huge box of cowboy party supplies! She didn’t really have a choice!)
So it was Cowboy hats and mustaches for all who dared! Trampoline time, pin the tail on the donkey game, horseshoe toss, presents, cupcakes and free time. And I was beat!
We had a fabulous idea to take pics of all the kids wearing these, and making a “wanted” poster with each of them, but Hubby couldn’t get the computer to do its thing. disappointing. I’ll be posting them on my personal facebook for the moms to see
So today (Sunday) I had a 2 hour nap to recoup!
This week I’ll be putting a lot of energy preparing my projects for a vendor table on Thursday, and then life should be a little back to normal! Ya, right!
How was your last week of April? Did you do anything exciting??
Thanks for reading!!
