Blog Award and Birthday Plans

First of all, thank you for all your thoughtful comments! It makes my day to hear from you and to see you keep coming back! You're the BEST!

Second, thank you to Aunt Deanna from Creekside Cottage for passing this award on to me! She truely has an Excellent blog for those of you who don't already know.

I'd like to pass it on to my favorite sister at Crystal's Corner
and to a new blogger friend Kristi from Music Mom of Two.

Anna, yes, yesterday was our first time at the Mom and Me art class. We'll be going every week if we can make it. The best part for Elijah was just getting to be around the other kids. I think you and Ashlee would enjoy one if have one in your area. I know she's might be too little for some of the crafts but we moms ended up doing most of the craft work anyway. =)

On Saturday we're celebrating our little guy's second birthday! Originally I'd planned on a construction theme since his favorite word right now seems to be "tractor". But when we went to the party store today they didn't have much for that theme. And I didn't see the point in running around to a dozen different stores just to find it. Then Elijah saw this fire man's hat and that was it, we had a new theme. =) As we were checking out one of the staff guys blew a red balloon up for Elijah and gave it to him. He was happy. =)

So what kind of food goes with a fire man party? I'm making an ice cream cake. This is Florida and it'll most likely be 80 degrees outside so ice cream sounds good.


P.S. My favorite and most used botton on here, the spell checker, is not working for some disasterous reason! So please forgive and if you can ignore, any misspellings you come across!

hey girl! :)

that is such a cute theme you picked out!

i cannot get over the fact that you're enjoying 80'F weather while we're sat stuck at home because there's been a snow storm going on since yesterday!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! LOL!

so not fair! i gotta move closer to you guys!!! and that warm sun!!!! jeapers!

hee hee!

if i think of any cute food ideas for you, i'll let you know...
first thing that came to mind is JELLO..Red of course... and if you can find little cookie cutters..then they can cut fire trucks or whatever out... just make the jellow in a cookie sheet or baking pan, maybe 1/2 inch thick??? i think that'd be a fun "Craft" and snack! or you could do it yourself so it's all ready....

i'll keep thinking! what a fun idea!

when is your party again?

are we invited!!!! lol..j/k! ;)

My spell checker isn't working either Melissa! So I am having to double check everything!! What's going on??

Cupcakes are really the thing these days. But for ideas maybe go to Flickr.com and put in fireman cakes etc. and see what other's have made. I always do well at copying!!!
