The Royal Wedding

Did you watch?

I woke the girls up to watch with me
We made tea and ate banana muffins
They asked a zillion questions
I wanted them to stop but it was kinda cute now looking back

She looks stunning, very Grace Kelly to me

One of my most favorite moments was when he first saw her &
turned to her & said you look beautiful

So beautiful, so regal

There is so much hope that they have what it takes to make it despite the scrutiny and pressure.
He seems to have many qualities that Diana instilled in her children

Wishing them many happy years together & many beautiful babies!

Also attended a "BIG GIRL" party at a friends house
complete with Bangers & Mash, Tea & Berry Trifle!

And of course our tiaras!

Family Fun My Ass!

I really am convinced that

is published to remind us of how boring we are & how we need to step it up and do fun creative stuff with our kids

I always do & then my kids lose interest 1/2 it me?

I stumbled on this article

So I think, wow this would be so fun to do with the girls for Easter
I love projects
I always have so much free time that I can spend my leisure making things with them
then birds & flowers tied in ribbons will fly around us as we do them


This project came out super duper cute & now that I did it, i know how to make it easier....
I would assembly line it

Again thats a


But here is how i did it
for those who want to know

I apologize in advance for the crappy pics
I was too lazy to take my ass upstairs to get my camera

So we started with
chocolate animal crackers
chocolate frosting
orange mike & ikes
green gummy candy
sugar wafers

So I beat the crap out of the animal crackers-
rolling pin in a ziplock was my method,
don't know if there is a better/easier way

Then we mashed in some chocolate frosting,
I didn't measure anything,
I kept adding frosting till it felt kinda like crumbly play dough

then my lovely assistants helped me sort out the orange mike & ikes

then start snipping the green gummy candies (rips)

I cut them in halfsies

then in quarteries

then snipped to make the stalks

then worked them into the snipped top of the carrot, really easy cause they are so pliable

You basically use the sugar wafers & frosting to make a rectangle shaped "flower box/planter"
So two are the long sides & 1 cut in 1/2 is the short side of the rectangle
the frosting is the glue to hold them all together

Then add in the "dirt" and "plant" the carrots

Funny thing is the girls had given up by then
the snipping had gotten tooo boring & they walked away
Hubby ended up taking pics for me and "planting" the carrots

There is a lot of extra "dirt" on the edges but they came out so cute!!!!!
Lot's of work
I ended up doing most of it
So, Family Fun?
Not so much!

Here is what my day was like-

Ritalin Anyone????:

6:00 am-Sky comes in dressed for school, ready to snuggle as my alarm goes off
this was the highlight of my day, my girls RARELY snuggle anymore!
6:15 am-after snuggles w/ my Noops (Sky's nickname) & hitting the snooze button,
i get up dressed & ready for work,
apply make up 1/2 assed(you would not approve Ash)
then change 17 times before i decide on an outfit
6:58-rush downstairs,
write a check for school,
make tea for my travel mug(disney of course)
grab banana & bag for work, off i go

7:29.59-pull into work just in time
8:30-finish testing & tutoring, decide I should head to walmart
8:34-in my car thinking it is a really good idea to check email
8:45-still in school parking lot writing posts to Facebook about American Idol
8:49-drive to Walmart & park car, enter store where i don't really need shit
