Organizing TShirts

Sunday, October 19, 2014

I only wish I had the before shot of this...

Our kids are in charge of putting away all of their own laundry, so today when I went into D's room and saw this drawer barely closing, wrinkled t's sticking out of it...

I knew I had to do something.

I quick emptied it out, folded the t's so you could see what you were getting, and 'stood them up' so to speak...I simply loved the end result!

So much so, that 10 hours later I went back to snap a picture to share with all of you!

Doesn't it look great!

Maybe everyone does this with their t's - 
The hubs and I do - but we don't have the same tshirt collection that our son does.
It doesn't make NEAR the difference that it seems to with our 7 year old's dresser.

Now he can easily see what's where...
And if he wants to wear a Twins Shirt, or a Minnesota Wild Shirt, or a solid colored shirt, or his Minion Glow in the Dark T...He can easily see and take it out, instead of upending the whole shabang and making a mess.

I hope?

Hailey's Birthday Party - Decorating Aprons!

Tuesday, October 14, 2014

So, part 2 of the most amazing birthday party ever!!

In addition to the super fun cake decorating we did - we also had the girls create their own aprons!

We set up a table with blank aprons, puffy paint, and gems...

The kids created various designs on the table and on cardboard...

And then my amazing husband and equally awesome sister in law helped the girls glue things on!

The cake decorating and aprons took up most of our 3 hour allotted time frame, but we still found time to make wishes, enjoy some snacks and cake!! and open a few gifts.

Life is to be celebrated, and we have so very very much to be thankful for!

Happy 9th Birthday Hailey Girl.
Here's to all of your dreams coming true!

Hailey's 9th Birthday Party!

Monday, October 13, 2014

Just like that.


I was pretty sure we were going to skip the whole birthday party thing this year, 
and just simply celebrate HER, with her, and with maybe a good friend or two...

But...when it's just us, and we're all we've got...
It's hard not to do things big! Or at least extra special!


Like we needed cupcakes AND cake, but, we did! Didn't we?

Dad and his best girl, on her big day.
(God Bless the Dad, who was a tremendous help with this party!! Frosting, gems, glue!!)

So...celebrating ~ 
What can you do for your 9 year old girl's birthday party, 
that hasn't been done time and time again?

Something fun, something special...

Well, you invite your friend Jess over from Everyday O'Cakesions!

Jess did EVERYTHING - and all I had to do was supply the space, and the party go-ers!
Because our space is pretty small - we only invited 5 friends, for a total of 6 little cake decorators!

Each girl got her own individual cake to decorate ~ 

And how FUN were these buttercream colors???

so so sooo fun!

The girls were so very excited - and Jess got right to work decorating with them.

So much concentration as they followed her instructions carefully.

See the green turtle resting on the top of this one?

It was so much fun to see the smiles on the girls' faces while they made masterpieces!

Every cake, as unique as the child creating it.

It was something very different, very fun.
Something I highly recommend, if you are looking for something to do for a unique birthday party!

Decorating your own cake, AND...what else? 

An apron of course!
