My Mom helped me with all the picks for the cupcakes and she even cut out the tickets on the new Cricut
the cotton candy wouldn't fit on the clothes pin so I was throwing them over, it was too funny we had flying cotton candy everywhere
And this is what Elliette wanted, all the fondant balls I am seriously exhausted today. I had been planning a carnival themed birthday for Ellie this year. I thought how easy is corndogs and pretzels, with cute individual dipping sauces for them. Little did I know it would be harder than I thought. I didn't want to start them too early so they would get cold, but then they were not cooking fast enough. I wanted to start the popcorn earlier but Jeremy said don't start it too early, so needless to say I was rushing at the last minute. But thanks to Jess, my Mom and Krista who all jumped in to help. We actually lucked out on the weather and it was really nice, not too hot. The food turned out and everyone liked it. I decided to do one game, and we had a little fishing pond. The kids had fun casting the line and turning in their tickets to have a turn. We opened presents and had cake and cupcakes. Jeremy and I when we finally got into bed last night said okay next year we are ordering pizza, this is too much work. But I love it, I love planning and coming up with fun theme ideas. It gives me something to do. I love having something to look forward to. Love you Elliette! My baby is 2!
