The Birthday Cake!!

I have been slow this year with birthday celebrations. I have worked some this summer (Mill Hollow) which has put me off my game. I decided when the kids were born that we would have a party on their odd birthdays. The even birthday would just be cake and ice cream. Something low key. Well, seeing that all of my children were born two years apart has changed my thinking. That is a birthday party every month for 3 months. I am going to have to rethink my plan, because it is a lot of work and a lot of money. Anyway, DD#2 wanted a princess party this year. She wanted a princess cake, but that seems too daunting to me. So I got on the computer and started looking. I found this video to this fantastic cake and it looked fairly easy. So I got DD#2 all excited and we took the challenge this weekend. My piping skills are not the greatest, but it did turn out pretty cute.

I will post some of the pictures from the party when I can figure out how to get them off of my camera rather than off of my memory card. Until then, enjoy the cake pictures!

Father's Day Gifts

Has it really been two weeks since school got out? I can't believe it. It is going too fast. My sister and her family moved out, the next day DH's sister and her DH moved in. We have celebrated DD#2's bday. She turned 3. I went to Mill Hollow with 5th and 6th grade students from my school and now we are preparing for Father's Day. In the next few weeks we have more planned. I am going to go to Mill Hollow with another school as a sub (crazy, but the money is good), the 4th of July, a small birthday party for DD#2 and a Family reunion. It will keep us busy. Busy is good, right?

So, I decided to try my hand at some really cute food that I saw on a blog. I do not take any credit for these little beauties. It was from Bakerella's blog. She has done some amazing things and I really liked this idea for Father's Day.

So with the help of my mom and my kids, we were able to accomplish this. I thought they turned out pretty cute. I hope that the men in our lives will love them tomorrow. It took some time, but they really did turn out cute.

Happy Father's Day to all you dads out there. and to those that are not Fathers yet, Happy Father's day to you as well. You all deserve it!

Last Packed Lunch of the School Year!!

I just packed my kids last lunch this year. Hooray!! I am so excited to take a couple month break from packing lunches. School is out tomorrow!! I am so glad to have a break. I have had a great class this year, but it will be nice to not have to work for a bit, not saying that 3 kids isn't work.

Well, here is to a great summer. Enjoy it everyone. Because we all know that it will go by so fast. Next thing we know, we will be posting pictures of our kids first day of school next year. AHHHH!!!

The pictures of the scenery!

Well, I didn't get the students in these pictures, but I thought it might be fun to post the scenery. The kids did a great job. I picked the pictures and put them up on the projector, they traced all of them and painted everything. It is amazing what they can do!

It's Over!!

The production, that is. I took my camera, but in the craziness of it all, I didn't get a photo. Oh well. I will probably just take pictures of the scenery to show you how great my students did on that. Phew....I can now breathe a sigh of relief. The kids did a great job! There were only a few computer glitches with the slideshow, but overall it was a great success.
Now, to get through the last 3 days of school for the year! Hooray for summer!
