Hi everyone! I hope you all had a wonderful Valentine's Day yesterday. :) Just a few random things and some updates today.
First off, I thought you'd all enjoy seeing Middle Gal's birthday "cake" (although it was actually cookies instead!) from her family party. Today is her actual birthday. At 2:29 PM on this day seven years ago, my little bundle of joy joined our family. I can't believe she's already that old! :}
As you can see, she's still very much into Lalaloopsy. :) Mom and Mimi did a great job with the cake this year, as usual. They used one of the Peanut Big Top minis, along with her accessories and her cardboard house. The trees are made of star-shaped sugar cookies with purple frosting and pink sprinkles (Middle Gal's specific request), and are topped with dark chocolate Hershey's kisses. Then Mom took two thin dowel rods , used cookies to secure them, and cut the Happy Birthday pennants out of scrapbooking paper.
Adorable mini Peanut Big Top.
Middle Gal had a wonderful family party and is very excited about her birthday trip...but I'll get back to that in a bit.
I thought you'd enjoy seeing my latest Goodwill find: 45 My Little Ponies! These were purchased over two trips, but someone obviously just got rid of their entire collection.
My Little Pony Palooza!! ;)
And here they are slightly more organized. There are 45 ponies in all, 44 G3s and 1 G1.
Right now, I'm in the middle of going through the ponies, organizing them, and figuring out who they are. Once I've finished that, I'll figure out which ones I'm keeping and which ones I'll be passing on. :)
I have some great upcoming posts planned, including some reviews and a couple of fun giveaways, so be on the lookout for those. :)
But first, I have an out of town trip this weekend! Mom, Mimi, and I are taking Oldest Gal, Middle Gal, and Little Gal on a birthday trip to a Disney Store and several other places in the same vicinity. This is a replacement for the 3 crazy "friend" parties I end up throwing 3 months in a row every year. We thought it was a good year to try something different. Each girl will still have a nice, low-key family party during their birthday month, but this weekend is the big celebration. Each of them have about $50 to spend (gifts from family), so they're all super excited. :) I'll share all about the trip when I get back.
I won't have Internet access while I'm gone, so don't be worried if I don't publish your comment or get right back to you...I'll be back in a couple of days. :)
And on that note, once again I've found myself a bit behind on my emails. I was hoping to get to them before this weekend, but it just didn't work out with packing and everything else this week. If you've sent me an email recently, I apologize for the delay and will respond as soon as I can, hopefully by next week.
That's about all for now...I've got to finish packing and get to bed! ;)
