Birthday Round-Up

I made these little car cookie pops. They are time consuming.., but they are so cute and they taste really good too.

All of my favorite boys' birthdays are within one week of each other!! Robby, Isaac and my dad.

Robby's birthday decorations.

These were the "goonie bags" as Monet calls them. I used a cookie cutter here as the stencil for the red car. I also found all the Cars pez dispensers and sticker books at Goodwill for a quarter each. Score!! Our Goodwill gets a lot of stuff from Target that didn't sell.

Bowling on Robby's birthday. So much fun. Monet wants to go bowling on her birthday now. My first ball was a strike. Robby said he was worried he might have had to step up his game after that, but it was beginner's luck. Monet almost beat me.

Isaac's cupcakes. These turned out really good. Trying to spend as little as possible, I only invited a few of Isaac's closest buddies and I used a coupon for Frogg's Bounce House. Afterwords, we walked over to Burger King for dinner and cupcakes. On the way home, one of his little friends said, "That was the best party!" The kids were so cute and had so much fun. I had fun too. I love bouncing on the bounce houses and flying down the super steep slides. I didn't get any picture of the actual party because I still don't have a camera...and my phone camera is horrible, as you can see. But, when everyone sang "Happy Birthday" to Isaac, you could see the pure delight in his face. It was so sweet.

I love making those little banners for special occasions. I sent one to my dad for his birthday with some nuts and pictures. After all the running around and birthday prep and celebrating, the house is a disaster and stuffed to the brim with clutter. Whenever I get into a craft or a project, the house work piles up. I can't wait to de-clutter and clean now.
