a little tubing fun...

during the break the kids were really excited about all of the snow, so quinn ran down to the tire shop & picked up some good old fashioned inner tubes! they are so great! who needs fancy sleds! becks was super timid at first, not wanting to go down by himself, but as soon as he did once he was unstoppable! avi had a blast until she crashed face first:( i was just glad i had already gotten some good shots before that. here are a couple of my favorites.

{just chillin' in the white stuff}

{if your legs get tired... just crawl}

{eating snow gives you nice, shiny lips}

{after a long afternoon of sledding, tubes make great cushions:)}

avi's party details... finally!

sory that it took me so long to get thses pics up! if it makes you feel better i haven't even gotten my christmas tree up yet:( the party was super fun & all the kids had a "sweet" time. sorry, i couldn't help myself!

{you must have plenty of sweet treats...}

{& a few yummy activities}

{adding more sugar is never a bad idea}

{a game is a must!}

{with candy markers of course}

{here's the card i made. it is 6x6, you can fit 4 on a 12x12 paper}
i printed them on cream pearlized paper & clipped the edges with a corner rounder

{i went to the store to get a # candle & when i went to put it in the cupcake
my friend said "is she 2?". i had totally bought a #2 candle instead
of a #3:) hence the 3 separate candles.}

{knowing this little one, she probably wished for more sugar}

{conclusion::: one finger licking party!}

lollipop invites how-to...

here are the promised pics of the avi's invite. i love the way that they turned out. they weren't hard, but they are a little bit timely.
**try to glue yours together a little straighter than i did this first one:)

{the finished product... unwrapped}

{a closer look at my crooked edge:)}

blank birthday candy invite
{here is the template i made for the actual info part}
i made it to have the colors to match my papers...
this one is made to be the size i made mine. but you could always shrink it down.
you just want to make sure that this one is about 1-1 1/2" smaller than your patterned paper.

{i used this circle cutter by making memories, i got it at Michael's craft}

{just cut a front & back sheet for you lollipop. i made mine with 9" Styrofoam, which i got at the cso
i cut my sheets as wide as the cutter would allow}

{i glued 1 1/2" satin ribbon around the edge of each disc... after i glued the
dowel in}

{cut 1 1/2" strips to acordian fold for around the outer edge of you lollipop}
you will probably need 3-4 strips depending on what size you make &
how tight you fold them.

{after you have folded all of your strips, glue them together in a long line, then
glue the ends together to make a circle}

{hot glue around the edge of your styrafoam, them stretch your acordian paper
& hold it down until the glue is set}

{make one small accordian paper to glue in between the patterned & word

{glue them all together, again paying attention to the space on all sides}

{this is what it should look like from the side}

{glue another piece of patterned paper onto the back, i went with a circular stripe
on this side instead of the horizontal stripe on the other side}

{wrap each one up i clear cellophane & tie with ribbon of you choice}

{making it look as close to a real lollipop wrapper as you can}

{& tada! one lollipop invite... or you could omit the word part & use then as decor}

the party is on saturday... gotta get cookin'
