I almost deleted my blog. I never ever update it. Seems like another obligation rather than a memory keeper. But I think I'll give it another go and try to get back on track. We just celebrated all the kids' birthday with one big Wizard of Oz bash. That's what our family costume theme was this year too: The Wizard of Oz! The kids were so cute!
We had 15 kids at their party and we played a lot of games/activities. It was fun (at least to me). But I didn't think ahead and get very many party pictures.
I worked on the party for weeks (as usual). Seriously I do love doing it. I love to think of ways to make things without buying them. The favor bags this year were made out of grocery sacks .... yes, I weaved 15 baskets from grocery sacks. I know, people are rolling their eyes, it didn't really take that long and it was free.
The rainbow cake turned out at 11:30 the night before it didn't seem like it was going to work. Each layer wasn't coming out the pan so nicely. I sure thought it would fall apart when I cut into it but it didn't and kids liked it and it tasted good.
