Birthday party pics

Finally. I'm so behind but I recently got the pictures from my sister in law.

First, I hung up some of the poms in the kitchen. Then we left them there....they're still up today. I should probably take them down...



Pouting in her lovely dress...she was so tired and had missed naptime.


With her friend, Hope. Lilly calls her "Popey"


Cupcakes! She was VERY excited for these


Opening presents with Daddy and Hope


She had a great party. I wish I had had my own camera, but these will have to do.

I had a bad day.

Yesterday was one of those days you wake up and wish it could be tomorrow already.

It was dreary rainy out. The chilled damp air really gets to my body and I felt terrible all over. My muscles and joints ached like I had arthritis! Of course, everyone else said they were just fine, I must be crazy. But really, this happens every time it rains.

Later on in the day I tried to use my digital camera to take pictures of some things I made yesterday. I had whipped up a pretty summer skirt for myself and a couple headbands and wanted to show you all on the blog here. I went to turn the camera on and it wouldn't. At all. This camera has been sent out via Geek Squad twice already, had the entire lens unit replaced, as well as a new power board. However it just hates me and DH had to bring it in with him today in hopes that it'll get fixed. :( So sad, baby's party is tomorrow and I can't use my own camera.

THEN yesterday afternoon, my big girls were in their basement playroom goofing around. The middle comes upstairs and says "Mama do you like my hair?" And being a busy mama I say "Sure" then glance up and notice she's hacked her hair off. Mullet-style. I was in shock. I cried. I called my mum who said "come on over and I'll try to fix it". Now she has a pixie cut, which looks okay on her tiny little elf-like head, but it makes me so sad. Her hair was finally growing longer. It had gorgeous curly waves and hung past her shoulders. *crying!!* I'm heartbroken. I know it's just hair, but it's my little girls hair!

And of course I can't show you any pictures because of the nonfunctioning camera, but let's just say it wasn't pretty, it's okay now, but hopefully it'll grow in faster.

Today has been a better, sunnier day. Let's hope mother nature gives me a long break from a day like that again

It's good that I don't parent the way I blog

It's been nearly a month!! Isn't that crazy!?! Things have been wild and psychotic this past month. I've been prepping for the little ones birthday party, and Easter too! Not to mention it's been the wettest March in FOREVER here.

I made a bajillion of these paper poms for the birthday party. I used the tutorial from Martha's website. These were really easy! I believe we'll be making these for EVERY family function from now on.



I've been working on knitting some shorties for the little one as well. However that's not going so well. My numb kittens keep finding the work in progress and chewing the yarn so that it breaks! Imagine my heartbreak everytime I got to pick it up to work on it some more and find that the hours of stitches I put into it are useless.

I made some of these eggs for the girls for Easter. I need to wrestle them away so I can get a picture.

So I've been busy, but hopefully things will slow down this coming month. The birthday party is this coming Sunday and then not much else going on except Mother's Day then the middle's birthday is June 1st.

I'll be around more for a bit. :)
