Evie's Fairy Party

Evie's gnome and fairy friends came to celebrate her birthday!

There was sweet food and hidden fairies everywhere.

The boys really enjoyed the treats.

We had a scavenger hunt led by me, the fairy queen, to find the missing fairy babies.

The little fairies and gnomes had to find my crown, jewelry, and wand before they found the babies.

Of course, there was cake...


...and a piñata.

I think I need to start making piñatas out of thinner cardboard...this one was tough to break and I didn't even use much tape!

Last, but not least, for all the die hard partiers, there was face paint. It's funny that most of them don't look very happy about their faces...maybe the sugar low finally kicked in.

Happy Birthday! ...again!

Cousins Slumber Party

The cousins had a slumber party tonight. It started with Pedro's burritos for dinner. Then cupcakes and frosting for dessert. After all that sugar, we needed an energetic outside activity...Snail Racing!

There were about five races. Corey's little guy won the first two. The next three were pretty close. The three guys above were more into becoming close friends than racing.

This was the very first race.

After snail racing, it was movie time. Cars for the little kids. Harry Potter for Corey. Popcorn and Gummi Bears. The kids loved it until Canaan became way overtired and started climbing and jumping all over. Bedtime. I had to sit next to him in his room for an hour making him stay in his bed until he was finally able to calm down and go to sleep. 10 o'clock is way too late for that little guy.

Can't wait to have pancakes in the morning!!

Jubilee Monday

Jubilee Street Party 


Lining up for a parade.

 Raise your hand if you are 2, 3, or 4.

It's getting cold.

 I'm 2! I'm 3!

 Hot dogs, veggie dogs, beer.

Pick a pocket for 50p.

Back home after the rain started.

 Playing in our own castle!

Happy Jubilee!

More Dancing

Evangelyn and Canaan took the "microphone," as Canaan calls it, out of their AbbyCadabby doll. 
It was their favorite toy of the morning.

Painting Faces

We've had a lot of cold rainy days lately, so one day we pulled out the face paints. A little while later, we had a puppy and a princess. They both wanted me to paint my face as a witch (but a good one, of course).

Evie's and Canaan chose some pictures to share...
 Me and Canaan were jumping off.
 Me and Mommy watching the show of Princess and the Pea.
Our Christmas tree.
I feed the ducks and I saw a castle.

Me and Canaan
Canaan goes to school! 
Backpack! (says Canaan)

...and, yes. It really is that dark when the kids leave for school. Canaan seemed to love his first day at nursery school. No tears. I felt a little lonely the first half hour of the morning that I had all to myself but then I was used to it and LOVED it! I sat in front of my s.a.d. light for a half hour, planned the grocery list, put on my makeup, and got some laundry done with no interruptions...and then I still had time to go to the store, unload all the groceries, and finish up some more laundry before picking up my little monkeys from school. This is great!
