Fancy Nancy Tea Party Birthday

Hannah turned 8 and had brought home a Fancy Nancy Tea Party book and asked if we could that for her party.  What a fun and simple idea.  Even better she made most of the decorations!

Word of the Year: Content Vol 12

Content

adjective  simple definition:  pleased and satisfied, not needing more


I am 'content' being a work at home mom BUT it is not alway the easiest job.  
Today I will 'endure' continue; be durable.

What I Wore 4/27

To keep myself accountable to getting dressed as a stay/work at home mom, I join a couple of blogs called The Pleated Poppy and Curly Crafty Mom.  I enjoy watching for what they wear each day  Since Novembers 'No Pants November' with Christina at Our Wood Home, I've pretty much continued to wear skirts/dresses most days. I quickly came to the realization this was going to be a LOT harder then I thought!

Busy day of Bible Study, Appointments, and Ice Cream Date with the big girls!

Currently 4/25

The last few months I have been doing a "Currently" post.  It is fun for me to think about my week. To open up, and show bits and pieces of my daily thoughts, and life.  I'm linking up with Becky from Choose Happy.





Celebrating...Sunday we had 2 parties, a graduation for my niece then the party moved to our house for Hannah's 8th birthday party.  She had Fancy Nancy Tea Party birthday.  Crazy but fun weekend with family and friends even out of town and surprise guests!  More details on the party later this week!




Enjoying...The rain the last few days has really greened everything up!  My daffodils are blooming, tulips up, bleeding heart and tiger lilies. So much green, even if it means I am going to have to mow lawn VERY soon!


Exhausted....After a busy week and weekend, I'm ready for a few days of no where to go towards the end of the week!  I'm so very thankful for an amazing group of women I meet with on Monday morning for a Mom's Bible Study, what a great way to start off the week!!!!!

Airplane Cake

Today I am getting ready for next birthday party at our house and realized I never posted how I made the airplane cake I made MONTHS ago for a very good friend of ours.  My hubby asked me to make him an airplane cake and this is how it ended up!!!!!


The original plan he found me was HUGE!!! It took 3 sheets of cake and after really looking at it I found I didn't have a container big enough to keep the cake fresh for 24 hours.  So...I improved and came up with my own plan.







Fun little airplane. 

Here are other cakes I have made also.
