So Sorry!

I haven't posted in such a long time. I am a school teacher, and since school has started, I have been so busy. I am working on several things now. I have a welcome home crayon party, a baby shower, and a Minnie Mouse birthday party. I will post some things as soon as I can. I am so excited to have had my Cricut Xpression to start my school year. I will show off some wonderful things done at school as well.

I had planned to do so much for this party. The week of, my sinuses began to ache! So, unfortunatelly, many things were omitted. For that DD, I am sorry! Here is what we did have.
The kids had pizza, fries, and fruit served in cafeteria style trays. I also made french fry boxes. The adults had wings, sandwiches, spinach dip, and fruit. To drink, of course, we served red ( strawberry) kool-aid and H2O.

The Sweet Shop

When everyone saw the sweet shop, they went crazy. The kids as well as the parents visited the sweet shop.

HSM decorations

Here are some of the decorations used for the party. We used red and white everything! The letters were cut with my lovely cricut.


Last Saturday was my DD's 6th birthday party. I am still tired. The HSM theme was awesome. Both boys and girls had a wonderful time. My camera is acting a little waky. I will post soon. I am also planning a crayola birthday party, a crayola cooking party, and a baby shower. Did I mention school is back in and I have 23 students, five year olds that is!

Happy 8th Anniversary

Eight years ago I was blessed to have become the wife to the world's most wonderful man. I thank God for him and I am so happy that we are still in love! He loves me for me and I thank God that he is the love of my life, the ice in my kool-aid, my best friend, the father of our baby, and the man that will put denture creme on my dentures as we grow old together, rocking on our deck to the tune of We're in this love together! I Love you babe!

Spongebob pool party Part 2

Here are some more pics for you to enjoy! If you would like to know about these party favors, please email me. I made them all myself!! The wall display was made with the Spongebob cricut cartridge. The bags were purchased at the Dollar Tree. The little yellow booklets are coloring books with SB characters to color. I also layed out the items that were in their favor bag: a SB DVD, a SB washcloth, SB fruit snacks, a rice krispy treat, a swirly straw, goggles, a lei, a water squirter, and a SB thank you card.

Pool Party

Hello All! The pool party was a hit! The kids and adults had a wonderful time. I didn't take many pics of the actual party because I was the designated adult in the pool while the others ate and played games. I did take pictures of the candy buffet table, some decorations on the inside, and the goody bags. I am so sorry, You didn't get to see the outside. Here are the pics I promised! Have a Blessed Day! I will do a second post with more pics and explanations for each favor made.

Target Finds!

I went to Target and look at what I found! I found the bottles (plastic) needed for my milk and cookies bar. Since my DD wants a pool paty, I will also use them for lemonade. Target has there Country Time Lemonade on sale for 1.97. They have strawberry, regular, and pink lemonade. In the one spot, I found hotdog and corn holders as well as water balloons, all for 1.00 each. Oh Yeah, the bottles are 4.99 each. Good price! I saw them at another store for 8.00 each.

2 new parties

O.K. summer is right around the corner and its time to party. My daughter wants a camp out and a pool party so some friends can come over to swim. I am on the hunt for some ideas. I will post some pics of what I found!

Take a look!

What if I told you that there is a popsicle out in popsicle land that is shaped like a watermelon.Would ya believe me? Well take a look:

Over at maddycakesmuseblogspot, the perfect watermelon pop was found at an Asian grocery store. I will be on the hunt for these tomorrow and I will let you know if I find them. Wish me look!

Monster Jam Dirt Fest

Over at the Purplepug blogspot, Kristy ( I pray this is right), did an awesome job for her son's party. I won't say a word! Just check out these pictures and/or visit the sight.

Milk & Cookie bar

Nothing's better than cold milk and some home made cookies. I have seen several parties with this theme as well as just as an add-on at a party. Do you think that would be a great addition to my HSM party? Please vote! Here is a pic from purplepug's blogspot. Please go visit! AWESOME


Sorry I haven't been posting anything. My DD has been sick and we are having some work done to our house. We are adding a deck and a small patio. Why both? Well, we've always wanted a deck and God blessed, and there you have it. the patio came due to extra red clay dirt left over from last year's pool installation. The red dirt left a huge red spot in our yard and so we want it covered. I promise I will upload pics when everything is finished! WOW, just in time for Memorial Day! God is Awesome!

Photo Op

I want to have somthing like a photo op at my DD HSM party. We are using HSM standees and I also thought about this. Over at, she created these cute photo ops for a carnival party. I will paint a graduation type theme picture , since HSM is about high school and I think we will be showing HSM 3, which is when they all graduate. So of course this will be perfect and they can have the option of photo ops.

BEE's anyone?

I have seen this Bee theme on several blogs now. I have seen it in two ways, as a birthday party and as a baby shower's theme : What Will it Bee? How cute is that. The details are very cute. So pay close attention. You can get lots of inspiration from this party, I know I have. For more details and more pictures visit the creator of this party's blog at A to Zebra Celebrations blogspot. You'll bee glad you did!
