Some Grainy Nighttime Pictures of the Kids Christmas Bedrooms :)

Big Girls' Room: 

During Thanksgiving break, the kids and their cousins spent a good 2-3 days making perler bead ornaments for their trees. It was the perfect craft to keep them busy and they turned out so cute!

Boy Room:

I bought this adorable Riley Blake Christmas fabric from fabric.com on sale and whipped up four pillow cases for the kids. They are so cute and the kids knew Christmas was really coming when I put up their trees and out their new Christmas pillowcases on!

Christmas break has officially begun! And don't let these pictures fool you- the rooms are clean but we literally spent the entire day -HOURS!- up until dinner time cleaning. I told them they had to clean and go through their junk or Santa wouldn't bring them new toys (!) And that if they did it today, then we could enjoy the rest of vacation! (Does that make me a good mom, or a lame one?! Ha!)
Have a great weekend, we are hoping to make candy houses by day and to party white elephant style by night. Only 6 more sleeps 'till Christmas!

Sweet Shoppe Birthday Party

We had a Sweet Shoppe birthday party for my daughter yesterday and it turned out great! Get ready for lots of pictures:

"Pin the cherry on the ice cream sundae"

Party favor cookies:

Welcome to the Sweet Shoppe!

Homemade chef hats for each guest baker:

Decorating cupcakes:

Party games included Sweet Shoppe Bingo, guess how many Skittles are in the Candy Jar, and this game where you have one minute to put a piece of candy between your knees, walk across the floor and see how many candies you can get in the jar, however many you get in the jar you get to keep and eat!

Every guest was asked to wear an apron to the party. It was super fun!
