my goofy little annie girl is growing up too darn fast.
for her birthday she got a new coat, sparkly boots, mexican train, sunglasses, a baby doll and a new KU tee.
for her classroom treat she wanted chocolate cupcakes with pink icing and sprinkles.
as i walked through the grocery store with only 1.5 hours left to make those cupcakes i saw in the bakery....
chocolate cupcakes with pink icing and sprinkles.
i was very torn.
i stood there a good five minutes trying to decide if i should just buy them or go home and bake my own.
i went home and baked my own.
only because i hadn't asked annie what she wanted and
i didn't want to make any mistakes on the treats at the new school.
she said "mom...you can't send them with me...THE MOM comes in and brings the treats at this school!!"
for annie's party...
her art teacher from her old school came and led CRAFT time.
it was SO good.
Ms. Beth had their complete attention.
she brought Sculpey in lots of colors for each one of the kids.
and showed them how to make a couple of different projects.
they were so quiet.
it was awesome.
it was the best party we have ever had.
it was so calm and quiet and fun.
they were mesmerized!
while we had dessert and opened presents Ms. Beth baked the projects so they were finished.
she put them in goodie bags with the kids names on it.
i HIGHLY recommend Beth for your party!
annie does too.
you can email Ms. Beth at:
byhwdy1 @ sbcglobal . net (without the spaces of course.....)
you can get in touch with her about all the fun parties at your house!!
you will LOVE it.
annie decided on parfaits instead of cake and ice cream.
we layered chocolate cake, chocolate pudding, mini marshmallows, whipped cream and mini chocolate chips.
and topped it of with an oreo.
Y U M M M M M M M M M M M M M.
and it was easy for them to bring home what they couldn't finish too.
her friends gave her craft kits and a set of legos.
she was PUMPED.
