I spent WAY too much time making these bunny cake pops from Bakerella. I encourage you to NOT go to their site and look at what they were supposed to look like, because compared to theirs, mine TANKED. I was going to make the chicks too, but the bunnies took so long, I gave up and returned the rest of the stuff to the store. What was I thinking?!

The worst ever general conference bingo prize for A.J. What was I thinking?!

We made A.J.'s easter basket instead of buying one; what was I thinking?!

We colored eggs at 9:30 the night before Easter, even though we had to be to church at 7:50 the next morning; what was I thinking?!

We still managed to survive the crazy days leading up to Easter and enjoyed a layed back day (finally!)

A.J.'s Birthday

Our little baby turned four last week. Where is the time going?! Her birthday was Thursday. She picked out a fancy cupcake at Central Market and managed to bang her face on the iron gate on the way out. (Please note the lovely goose egg in the rest of the pictures.)

That night, she opened gifts from grandparents and we went out for ice cream. The following Saturday, the party ensued. We did a carnival theme.



Game booths:
"Lucky Duck"

"Bucket Toss"

"Ring Toss"

"Go Fish"

"Drown A Clown"

And of course, what would a carnival be without a tattoo booth?

For food, we did hot dogs, popcorn, chips, circus animal crackers and cupcakes:

The kids all won tickets at each game booth and redeemed them for prizes afterward:

Here's AJ with all her loot! She didn't get this much for Christmas - she was in hog heaven. (She's had a bit of a pajama fetish lately - as soon as everyone left she broke out the piggy pjs.)

It was a fun party, but phew!, I'm glad it's over. Now we can start gearing up for Florida - YAY!

It's Been Almost A Month?!

I think this is officially my longest blogging "dry spell". I have had WAY too much going on the past couple of weeks. And now I can spend the next couple weeks blogging about all of it. Phew!
