I really hate to start each blog post with "things have been so busy here", but it is true! I need to get back into blogging more regularly. So, that is my plan. :)

We recently celebrated my Littlest One's 2nd birthday! She actually had 2 parties, since we have a big group of family and friends. She had a blast! We did a cupcake theme, as you can see. Lots of pink, lots of sweets!

Here are the invitations that I made.

The cupcake part lifted out of the liner to reveal the event details.

Here are some cute cupcake favors. Each one of these holds half a big bag of M&Ms!!! I saw the idea for these in the May 2008 issue of Parents Magazine. you basically fill a baggie with candy and tuck it in a paper cup to resemble a cupcake. These could be foofed-up into something really cute, with ribbons, tissue fringe, etc. I just was running out of time! Yikes!

Some chocolate pops we made. We did iced cupcake cookies too, but I guess I didn't take a photo. I'm pretty sure that all of the kids had enough sugar by the end of this party!!!

I have definitely been on a cupcake kick! These ornaments weren't for the party, but for Natalea's Valentine's Ornament Swap. Such a fun swap... you can see all of the other lovely ornaments from the other players here.

The little invitations are darling. I'm planning my twins 1st birthday party right now. Trying to settle on one design is impossible but so much fun to brainstorm. I love your latest mailing. I want so badly to go but I think a night away is too much at this point. I'm not ready to be away from my little ones yet. :) I should be mailing your package shortly. Can't wait! xo
