Chocolate Butterflies and YW Temple "Tea" Party

I saw this pinned on Pinterest  and thought it was genius.  So when my MiaMaids decided to have a little "tea" party up by the temple I thought it was a good opportunity to try it out.

My version is not as intricate, but I was able to do them quickly and they turned out really pretty.  The girls like them too.  I made little sandwiches with flower and butterfly cookie cutters and strawberry cream cheese.  We had fruit and cookies and pink lemonade. It was really fun.

I love these girls!  We chatted and planned and enjoyed the view of the temple.

And it was a great view for watching the sunset.

Construction/Dump Truck 2 year old Birthday

 For my little man's birthday I did a construction/dump truck theme.  First I made him a birthday shirt.  I cut out the image of a truck on a piece of cardstock, then set it on the shirt while I sprayed fabric spray paint on and around it.  It was super easy, but I think it was perfect for the look I wanted.

 For his cake I just did a chocolate circle cake with chocolate frosting.  Then I used crushed oreos and Heath bits as dirt and some little toy construction trucks on top.  I really love the way it turned out.

Since he is turning two I didn't throw a huge, full blown party, but we did have a couple friends come over for a playdate.  I set out some of Thayne's favorite snacks and fun themed names for them.  They had some sticker sheets they could do, but mostly just played in the dirt. :)

Easter clothes

For Easter this year I went all out. I made Lena a dress, Landon a vest and bow tie and Thayne a tie and suspenders.  I let Landon pick between him and his brother who got which kind of tie and who got suspenders or vest.  I think he was more excited to wear them because he had some say.  And of course Lena was thrilled to wear her pretty dress. I am very happy with how they turned out.
