Party Update

So yesterday was the girls' birthday party. The day itself was perfect! Sunny all day & not too hot, just perfect. We didn't have a lot of people over, a small group of family & friends so it wasn't really crazy either.

The kids got to smack the Pinata & got loads of candy. Here's Gianna with her loot.....

Marissa's all smiles with her bag of sweets.
After the kids had their fill of candy we brought out the cakes. Gianna picked Ariel with yellow cake & Marissa had Barbie with chocolate cake. Each cake took about 2 hours technically but in reality it took me from 4:30 to 10:30 due to all the interruptions from the girls, dinner & other stuff.
Besides the cake I made a bucket load of these treats--love them! So quick & easy to make & they have a big "WOW" factor.
My friend Connie took this shot of us. Gianna didn't want her pic taken all day & kept making faces. This was the best of the bunch.
I'm thinking of using this pic as their "Thank You" pic that I include with the cards I send out.
Didn't get any "WOW" pics but I'm ok with it, only cause I don't have any choice in the matter since it's all over. **SIGH**


Today was a nice relaxing Sunday. Joe let me sleep in late & we didn't do much of anything the whole day. Early in the day it stormed hard & we lost power for a short while. It was a perfect inside day. Just hung out & played the games that Joe brought home for the party.

I tried scrapping but couldn't get into it. I started printing out some pics so maybe I'll get some creative juices flowing & get scrapping in the next day or so. It would help if my computer wouldn't lock up when I sort through the pics so that I wouldn't have to start over each time!!!!

Tomorrow is Gianna's actual birthday. My baby will be 4!! Where did the time go?? I can't get over how big she's getting!!
