Iced tea started for the party
Here it is Tuesday once again, cannot believe how fast this spring is just slipping away. Do you feel summer bearing down on you too?
Well Tuesday means it is time to link up with Elizabeth, the Altered Book Lover and join the T-gang for a thirsty hop around the world.
Saturday was our GD, Megan's, 5th birthday.
The night before the birthday party Megan's Aunt Virginia and I made this center piece. They are supposed to be, or represent bottles of fingernail polish. They are frosted marshmallows ( more sugar on top of sugar) with a tootsi rolls for the tops of the bottles.......LOL what a riot these were to make, and it wasn't long and the two 8 year olds were helping. Lord keep us off of Pinterest!!!!!!
The birthday party was great, even though it really got hot that day. Lucky there was a pool to cool the guest down after all the festivities.
The theme ( yes they have themed birthday parties now) was a "spa and paint" party. Since we had four teenage girls we set them to work painting toes and fingernails of all the "little" guests.
Amber gets the honor of painting the birthday girls clean toes
OUIR BIRTHDAY GIRL MEAGAN
Megan also shares her birthday with her Uncle Kenny. A few years ago we had talked about how we skip the buying gifts for the adult birthdays, but should have some kind of gag gift. I finally got out the little trophy I bought....just for this... and tackied it up with stickers and nonsense, wrapped it up.....along with a card that has the instructions written on it.......and gave it to Ken.
OUR FIRST RECIPIENT OF THE TACKY TROPHYHe has to sign the card, place it in the tacky trophy and display it until the next adult's birthday, which unfortunately is mine and I will have to display it till August.......LOL and so starts a new family tradition.......all in the fun of growing older
So in good cheer, Ken poured his adult beverage into the tacky trophy, and drank as we sang Happy Birthday to him..........What a good sport!!
I am still working on bottle tags, they seem to be everywhere...LOL But I have sold a few to some close friends, so I am feeling a little more confident about selling them to the public.
Here are a couple of cards I also have finished, and hopefully sell at the street fair......maybe in June. We missed the "First Friday" this month because of Megan's birthday, but that gives me a little more time to prepare.
These cards still need to finished on the inside. There is one more, but it is taking blogger a LOOONNNGGG time to upload, and I can hardly keeps my eyes open......so you've been let off the hook from seeing MORE pictures......LOL
What's in your cup this week?
Has anybody else experienced disappearing captions under the pictures once you post?????
