Kairi's Party

Posted By: Allie
Mar 21st, 2012
I did a My Little Pony party for Kairi's third birthday. We decorated foam crowns and visors and I had a jar full of jelly beans and eveyone guessed "how much a pony could eat". I made sugar cookies topped with marshmallow fondant and bought some food coloring markers, each kid got to color a picture on their cookie to take home. For the cupcakes I made them in coordinating colors to match the main pony characters.

That was a great party with lots of fun activities! I loved the cookie idea and the take home boxes were adorable. You are so creative!
Snow...Finally

With the lack of snow this season I'm pretty glad my kids' snow pants and boots are bigger than they should be. Most of the snow we've had was too little to play in, so when we finally got a big snow storm the kids were thrilled to go play out side. I got our sled out for them and they took turns pulling each other. Kairi gave up after a minute.

The snow has been disappointing this year
Monster Jam

We had an opportunity to buy Monster Jam tickets at a discounted price through Jared's work, and Kaden is crazy about monster trucks, so we just had to go. We weren't sure how Kairi would handle the whole experience because any loud noises really scare her, but she actually did really well. I picked up some ear plugs for everyone and some gel type ones for the kids. They helped a lot and the kids kept them in the whole time.

We got there early so we could see the monster trucks up close. Wow, the kids were so excited. They got up close to all the trucks and met some of the drivers. Grave Digger is Kaden's favorite, but we couldn't get too close becuase the line was so long. So we just stood in front of the line to get pictures.

The arena was pretty small so there wasn't anything too crazy, no crashes or roll overs, but it was still great to see. One of my favorite performers was the Titan, I think he was a little funner to watch than Grave Digger.

New Years

I know this is "a little" late, but better late than never. I just never had the motivation to update our website, me and winter dont work well together. Now that things are starting to warm up and spring is just a few weeks away, i'm starting to feel the need to be more productive. So I have a few topics to post, starting with this fun New Years party we had.

We were invited to ring in the new year at Jamie's house, it was a lot of fun! We played bingo and had snacks and the kids played while we played cards. It was hard letting our kids stay up late, I'm pretty sure kaden fell asleep around 11:30, but new years is only once a year, why not let them have fun.
