The Do's of Table Etiquette with Jr.

                  2. Do Stack your condiments while everyone is eating.

     3. Do add toys in the mix,its a must, 
makes eating more fun :)

4. Last but not least, do use a napkin whenever your face gets dirty, and do not use a fork while eating, saves mommy from washing more dishes.

Sleepy Head Nadine

My Nadine is the best! When she's tired, she is tired. She falls asleep pretty much anywhere she is sitting.  I love taking pictures of her when she's asleep because she cracks me up. So here are a few pictures of her doing her thing.

My daughter Avery, I call her Teeps, loves to draw. I'm thinking of Adding a piece of her artwork on here once a week, No actually I'm going to add one every week. Any ways she said that she drew a mommy unicorn and a baby unicorn. I do believe these are very accurate drawings.  I even have this picture on the face of my credit card.

Alien Invites along with Alien Cupcakes

My Son likes Aliens So I made an Alien Invitation, Also Put Magnets
 in the back of these which I forgot to photograph.
Again these were meant to be put on the Fridge 
for a friendly reminder.


Alien Cupcakes: I used regular cake mix, white icing tinted with black edible dye,
Gum paste for the aliens, and green pipe cleaners  for the antenna's.

Wilton's Cupcakes N' More Large Dessert Stand Holds 38 is what I used to 
display these little guys on, I used black tissue paper to cover the stand as well.

My Neighbors Helped apply the icing :)

Candy Themed Birthday Party

Lollipop Invites I made for my Daughters Birthdays, I got this inspiration
 from Project Nursery, So Mad Credit goes out to Kim.

 I added Magnets on the back of each Invitation so
 that way it could be placed on the refrigerator for reminders

                                   Party information were added onto the
                                    tags instead of on the lollipop, The Card Stock 
                                              was also spray painted with glitter.

Rainbow Cupcakes Please

                                              Giant Gummy Bears as Prizes
