Here's the whole thing. Didn't Mom and Mimi do a great job?
Hubby helped by actually toasting the mini marshmallow that Dot is holding. :) The bonfire is made of candy clay and broken toothpicks.
A closer look at the yummy S'mores Cups. :)
Dot looks like she's enjoying herself. :)
I believed I mentioned before that Oldest Gal requested a bonfire and S'mores for her birthday (which would explain the theme of her "cake"). Here's the larger of the two bonfires we built. Unfortunately, this day ended up being one of the hottest we've had all year, so it was too hot to cook the S'mores at this fire. Thankfully, the guys made a smaller, smoldering bonfire as well, so the birthday girl and the family were still able to have their S'mores. :)
And since it's the third birthday of the year, as always, I completely ran out of steam and forgot to take pics of Oldest Gal's gifts. She got some very nice things, though, including mini Crumbs and her sister Sprinkle (Lalaloopsies), the book "All of a Kind Family", and more.
I took a lot of doll-related photos tonight to share with you, but I won't be able to get to the posts that accompany them until later. And this brings me to the "exciting news" I mentioned in the title: my uncle is giving my husband and me his old truck! A very nice truck (that to us is not very old) with enough seating for the girls. It's a huge answer to prayer, as our car has been having issues. Tomorrow I'll be traveling several hours away to go pick it up, so I'll be gone for most of the day.
Then Saturday afternoon I'll be going to a local production of "Fiddler on the Roof" with my mom, my aunt, and my mother-in-law. I'm very excited...it's been a while since I've been to a live performance. :) Even better, one of the kids I used to babysit is playing the role of Perchik. :) I'll have to tell you how it goes.
So in the meantime, don't worry that I've fallen off the face of the earth or something like that. I'll be back with more fun as soon as I can. ;)
