It's A Mario Party!

Cody is turning SEVEN!   

            My Leap Year "Baby!"    

So of course, he wanted a Mario Themed Party!  After much searching online, and being the "crafty" person that I am, here is what I came up with.  I could vision it in my head... and I think it came out... Almost as good. hehe.

Marshmallows coated in red candy coating & sprinkles on top for "mushrooms"  coming out of the PVC piping - Just like in Mario!
A giant "1 Up" Mushroom made completely of fondant!  {Eww!} But cute!    

 While Mr. L & Lil' Jack were out buying Cody's super surprise! {A NEW Bike!}
                          Cody, Emma & I made LemonAde.
Friday Miss Emma & I made these banners for the Birthday Boy!  He was so excited when he got home from school & saw them!  {As was Jack! I love how they came out!
Saturday I made the cake... check out the crumb coat.
 My First Fondant attempt.  Think it came out pretty stinkin' cute.
 We had red hots for "Fire Power" & ice blue beaded necklace for "Ice Power."
                                                                                         I also made this "Pin The "M" on Mario" game for the kids to play, with little sticky "M's" to try to stick in the right place.  They all had fun with it... but no one got it right on!
 After playing Pin the "M" on the Mario Hat we went outside for Cody to lead the kids in a game of "Mario Says!"  Our version of Simon Says.
 Tasty "Mini Snacks" for the kiddies & grown ups too!
 Happy 7th Birthday Cody!
 The girls eating cake!
 Present Time.  Everyone wants to help open!
Running outside to see the big surprise... The Bike!
Cody loves his new shirt from Zander!  
His second FAVORITE present! {To the Bike!}
All in All it was a pretty awesome Birthday Party! Mr. L even enjoyed it. {Yay!} The kids all had fun and as Mr. L said "you know the party was a success when the parents are ready to go & the kids all want to stay just five minutes more. Pleeease!"  

Oye.  Next Saturday is Emma's Birthday.
Lucky for me she just want a haircut! {And a Princess Cake...}

Weekend RePlay

Better Late ... Then Never...
 Friday after school & work we hit up Costco & Aldis to finally have some food in the house.  I am pretty sure it had been over 3 weeks since we had done any REAL grocery shopping.

Had to impulse buy... Costco was handing out samples of salsa & it was so good.  We were all hungry so that could of added to the fantastic taste... but surprisingly it was just as good at home.

Look how full the pantry is.  The kiddies are happy to have options for breakfast again.  Cheerios were getting a little "old!"

Saturday we went out for a bit to pick up some supplies & brought Cody out to spend his $5 he got from the tooth fairy!  He is such a nice brother.  He bought Emma a "Barbie", Jack some ninjas and himself some bases for baseball outside & a wheel for the wii.  All that for $5.  Dollar Tree Shopping.  The kids love it.

Sunday we went walking on the nature trail.  It was a little chilly ... but not bad out.  Mr. L & Cody were in a rush to get home to see the first race of the year.  Ugh.  It's that time again.  Which left me to my sewing machine. 

I made a teeny tiny blanket & pillow for Miss Emma to play with in her Calico Critters House & worked on some bunnies for the craft fair & a custom order.
 We had a pretty good weekend.  Counting down the days till the Birthday Party! (Next weekend!)  And the Designers Downtown Craft Show.  EekLots to do.
