Ten on Tuesday

1. We have been in overdrive trying to get ready for N's party. I have so many plans for it, and hopefully at least half of them get done! I am trying to paint, hot glue, draw, and cut out all during the 5 minutes at a time that Ellie will sit in her bouncer. Here is your second sneak peek of N's party! These are little bags that I ironed on a skull and crossbones clipart. Emma helped me load them full of chocolate gold coins, although, somehow a few of those chocolate coins disappeared! :) Anyway, these will be in the treasure chest at the end of the treasure hunt!

2. N had a little accident Friday evening and we ended up in the emergency room. He got in a fight with the car door and obviously lost. :( We thought he had a broken nose, but he didn't. He does however have lots of swelling, cuts, and two black eyes. This is an iphone pic of the night it happened.

3. I found THE cutest thing that I am getting Emma, Ellie and McKenna for Christmas! Here is the Etsy link to it!

4. Please let it rain soon, just not on N's party day! We need rain so, so bad. Our yard is seriously dying a fast death. I just cannot keep up with the watering of the yard, and it really shows. We stupidly didn't purchase the option for a sprinkler system when we were building this house. We are both hitting ourselves in the forehead over that big mistake!

5. I want a Silhouette machine! I dream at night about everything that it can do! The options are endless and imagine how much prettier it would make my parties! MUST. HAVE. A. SILHOUETTE!

6. Garett is going on a guy's only trip to Vegas soon, so it will be the first time I am left overnight with all three kids. Yikes! Do you think that deserves a Silhouette machine? ;) I hope he wins big there (and has a good time)!

7. I will be in a baking frenzy the next two weeks! This week I am making my mom some apple cut out sugar cookies to give to her class on the first day of school. She said that last year several of the kids wouldn't eat themat first because they thought they were too pretty. She teaches at a very low income school and many of them had never seen iced cookies in real life. I wish I had time to bake them for her kids at every holiday.

I also have many things on my list to bake for N's party. One of which are these:

That was my test run a few weeks ago.

8. The kids have a new favorite show and I think it is pretty cute. I especially love it because it is so educational and fun! So, if you are a mom to a young child, turn on Super Why!

9. Pinterest is my new obsession! I love it and I don't think I will ever lose an idea I find again! Follow me!

10. The house next door to us finally sold!
