Last Day Of School!!

A few pictures from the kids last day of school and Mya's preschool graduation.




Superhero Popcorn

It was superhero week at preschool, so my daughter and I came up with these cute popcorn cups.


The supplies you'll need are:

Blue Paper Cups
Red Felt 
Superhero printable you can find HERE.
Liquid Glue 
Optional- Plastic food wrap
Optional- rubber bands 

#1. I drew a template of a cape and cut it out.

#2. Pin the cape template you just made to the piece of felt and cut around the template. 

#3. Slip the cape on to the cup and place a little glue around the cape to keep it from falling. 

#4. Print out the superhero printable and cut them out. Then glue them to the front of the cups. 

#5. Then fill the cups with popcorn and you're done!

* Since I still had to bring the snacks to school, I cut a piece of plastic food wrap to cover the popcorn and I used a rubber band to hold it down. That way they didn't spill. 


Teacher Appreciation

My kids were blessed to have such wonderful caring teachers and we wanted to come up with something just to give a little thanks! The kids and I looked through Pinterest for some ideas (we LOVE Pinterest!) and they picked what we would make their teachers.

This is what we made, a candy dish and some apple Oreo cookie pops!

This was made from a planting pot and a glass bowl. We purchased everything at Joann's craft store. 
You can see the tutorial for the apple cookie pops HERE. We bought our supplies at Joann's craft store and Walmart. 
These are tags printed from Lauren McKinsey

Easter Morning

Here are some pictures from Easter morning of the kids with their goodies :)

Easter Bunny Card

This was my card for a swap. I made it using a circle punch, a scalloped circle punch, and an oval punch. I also used my Stampin' Up embossing folder to create the tree.

I wanted to add some dimension to the bunny, so I stuck in on a spring from CTMH. That way he moved around and wasn't just laying flat.


Mya's American Girl Birthday Breakfast

Mya celebrating the morning of her birthday with a very special breakfast!

Having French toast... One of her favorites :)

For the table I put together little flower vases and added a mini American Girl bag. 

Her gift table. I used some of my oldest daughters dolls for d├ęcor.

I also made little party hats for the dolls.

One of the party favors were American Girl necklaces that the girls received in there bags for them and their dolls with their names in it. I ordered them from Amazing Grace Headbands. 

I ordered her doll a birthday cake also with her dolls name on it from a shop on Etsy.  I also ordered the cute picnic table from an Etsy shop and she absolutely loved both of them! 

I ordered a set of printables from an Etsy shop for the banner. The printables package came with some other things so I cut out the dolls picture and attached them to a Starbucks bottle. 

Her birthday hat I made. You can find the hat template  HERE.

Mya's American Girl Birthday

This is way late but I thought I'd share the pictures from my daughters 5th birthday. We took her to the American Girl Store and she picked out her first doll. We also had a small celebration with her sister and cousin at the Bistro.

She found her doll and named her Kailee :)
Her and Kailee picking out a few outfits...

And some fun accessories.

Having cake and lunch at the Bistro with cousin Malia and big sister Kaleia.

The dolls even got there very own seats, party hats and bags, and table settings.

Mya making sure Kailee had enough pink lemonade.

Checking out all the cool goodies in her party bag.
