Fairy cupcakes

Elysa chose a cupcake tree with fairy dusted pink and purple glitter and fairy mushroom cupcakes instead of a cake. Her's had glitter candles and Tink. What's that Jon? Your cupcake sprinkles are popping? Woops! It looks like Mama and Elysa must have put pop rocks on yours on accidental purpose!

Enchanted Fairy Ice Skating Birthday Party!

Elysa had an Enchanted Fairy ice skating party with all her little friends at the Commons. I set up the fairy arbour and meadow complete with a wooden stump entwined with tulle fo her to sit on and our enchanted play qult sprinkled with rose petals for the girls. We used Tinkerbell decorations and dried poutpourri on the table and a whole lotta magic fair dust sprinkled everywhere....glitter! We hid the magic glitter fairy eggs filled with tiny fairy eggs around the ice rink for the girls to find after they began skating. When the girls arrived they each got a fair hair wreath, magic wand, and mttens I had glued roses on to complete the fairy look! I will have to put pic's of those up later....I am quite proud of my work! ;0

Happy Birthday Elysa!

Happy 6Th birthday Elysa! Yesterday, was Elysa's birthday, but I had a slight malfunction with my laptop (Some little children and an infamous pug spilled water around it and the battery completely malfunctioned.) and my computer network crashed (That would be the mom trying to "fix" everything.) Elysa had a wonderful birthday and I will post more about it and pictures later today. Happy Birthday Bella!

Knights of the Round Table

We've been working on this unit in math with the kids It's been alot of fun! Anything with knights is a big hit with the boys! We've been reading through The Story of the World by Susan Wise Bauer. We're in the second book that covers the Middle Ages and the kids are loving it! We watercolored large paper and made shield's out of it. We used watercolor pencil's to decorate them and they had a blast! Alec put his sibling's names on his, Elysa put ballet shoes and hearts on hers, and Nick put dragons and a knight killng it...kind of gruesome, but that's our 3 yr old!

We're on the mend..stay away germs!

Seriously,stay away! I am soooo tired of being sick! My ears are doing better and I can hear again..there is still ringing....time. Sigh. Liam keeps tugging at his ears....I assume they are getting better like mine and the constant popping is driving him crazy as well! The last visit to the dr and the ears were looking better.

Happy Valentine's Day!

A little late, but better than never! So, Happy Valentine's Day!
