Simple and sweet.

We’ve had an overcast, at some times rainy, week.  So here is  a simple way to anticipate the May flowers.  Go make one (or 10) today.

(FYI.  I used an old t-shirt to make this.  About a 2″ by the width of the shirt length.  Pin a couple to your shirt, scarf, attach it to a headband.  The sky’s the limit.  Use your imagination!!)

Boy Parties

When he was little, I loved having parties with lots of “stuff”.  Decorations, food, cakes, cupcakes, party favors, activities…etc.  I stressed about every little detail.  As A has gotten older, he has wanted to simplify.  Parties became sleepovers, lots of food and snacks became pizza and cake.  I love how much easier it is.  That is strange for me.  I make everything overly complicated.  Here are a few short, sweet pictures from his parties.

You’ll notice how they are simplified over the years.

IMG_1132iThe Death Star was made using a water balloon as a base, then covered with numerous layers of candy melts.  I attempted to “carve” the death star details.

These cookies were made using the Star Wars cookie molds from Williams Sonoma.  I put a layer of chocolate on the back.  YUM!!!

You can’t get much simpler than this.  Brownies, green frosting, Rice Krispy treats and blue jello.  Thank you Minecraft for the easiest cubed dessert ever.  The boys devoured it.
