Waiting on a Train...

While on our last trip out of town to visit my Grandmother
 our last stop was having dinner with my husband's best friend.

Of course as luck would have it we get stopped by a train when we are already running late....

Tristan and Gracie's Dragon Party

So the day finally arrived for Tristan and Gracie's 8th and 3rd birthdays respectively.
I can hardly believe they are getting so big!

(See how I made these cakes here)

We rented a HUGE 20 ft inflatable double slide
We were able to get some good playing done on it before all the kids arrived

Fearsome Dragon Cakes

Ya'll may remember me saying in my Tristan's jar cupcakes post that we were planning a party for the kids' birthdays on Saturday the 17th. 

We decided a while back we were gonna make this a dragon themed party because that's something they are both really into.  

I searched the world of pinterest and found a really awesome tutorial to make a dragon cake!
I altered it just a tad to make it fit my cake plate and I think they turned out fantastic!

so, here we go.... a SERIOUS undertaking...

Tristan's Birthday Jar Cakes

Yesterday was my Son's 8th Birthday
And since we are having a big Party this weekend 
We didn't do the whole shebang 

But my husband suggested we at least do cupcakes or something like that and so i decided to make the rainbow jar cakes you see all over pinterest.
I want ed it to be a "dry run" in terms of coloring the batter because I wanted to do rainbow cakes for the party Saturday...

Colored batter.  
I freaking love gel food coloring btw 

Sick Babies

There are few things more terrible than having to deal with a stomach bug.
Whether it's yourself or your kids, it's just plain terrible.
I personally would rather die than have the stomach flu.
just yuck.

Well last week Gracie had a stomach bug.  
And we didn't know it until it happened all over my husband....
Elliott insisted we make a public shame photo of her, lol
{I love these kinds of photos.  You can't help but laugh.}

Inspirations of a Fellow Artist: A Guest Post by Lisa @ Lost Garden Designs

Hi everyone!
It is my very great pleasure to introduce to you my very sweet friend Lisa!
She is the person who first inspired me to express myself through blogging, and it has been so fulfilling for me and i surely hope for her for us to kindle this sweet friendship!  

Lisa and I went to high school together and got reacquainted through facebook (as so many do!) and it wasn't long before we couldn't go a day without emailing back and forth and bouncing ideas off one another.

She is so very talented and also inspired me to pick up crocheting.  
She is amazing with a hook and I asked if she would be willing to do a guest post to show off some of her amazing creations, and she happily obliged, 
So, without further ado, here is Lisa!

Adventures in Ooo

I know most of you 
{if you're anything like me}
are totally done with Halloween even though it just happened.
So, bear with me, I'll keep it short!

I made the costumes for my kids this year.  
The prices on the ones we wanted were jacked WAY up for some reason by the time we got around to shopping for them, so i made the decision to make them myself!
This was a pretty big undertaking considering i am also balancing schoolwork and this blog and  trying to maintain the house.
I think they turned out great!
