We had a lovely little family birthday party at home last night. Hubby sent us on a scavenger hunt for her gifts. Each present had a little note attached with a clue to where the next gift could be found. We had lots of fun searching under beds, in closets, on the swingset and even in the mailbox. After that we had a wonderful little chocolate cake with vanilla icing (picked out by the birthday girl) that was lovingly hand decorated by the birthday girl and her little sister. The icing and sprinkles on top of the cake were and inch thick, but the girls loved it. We're planning a larger birthday party for her in a couple weeks at Chuck E. Cheese.
Ella started preschool this year, which she totally loves. Her little sister on the other hand, just can't get used to the idea of a strange person taking Ella out of our car in the mornings. She cries and cries for her big sister...well, until I can distract her with some candy or juice. It is just the most precious thing ever...especially because they are very competitive at home. Eva likes to have your attention at all times and absolutely hates to share.
This treasury was put together by the very talented mixed media artist, Nancy Lefko...that piece by lucysweetlucy is one of my all-time favorites! Be sure to check out collageartgirl on etsy!
Also, I decided to join a couple new teams...FAM (Fabulous Artist Moms) being one of them. They are such a fun and energetic group! These treasuries were put together by whimsybymari and feature some of the newest members of the FAMly.
