Magic Show

The older kids at Blake's school put on a magic show this last weekend.  They needed baked goods for the concession stand so I decided to pitch in and offer some themed cookies.  These were very fun to make and my hands had black food coloring stains for days!

My 7-Year-Old

Blake turned 7 and it was a weekend full of celebration.  
Friday = school birthday celebration
Saturday = family birthday celebration followed by a school magic show
Sunday = Chuck E Cheese's birthday party.

I LOVE Chuck E Cheese's.  Seriously.  I had a blast.  I think Blake did too.

Piper used a stool and got down the hair cutting bag from our hall closet.  She decided it was time for her first haircut.  I didn't know this was happening.  She cut bangs and "layers" on the front sides.  That will teach me to think she is napping!

Green and Ungreens

It was 8:45am when my husband texted me, "Happy St. Patrick's Day."  I had completely forgotten and dressed two of my three in plain clothes, not a hint of green in sight.  Thank goodness my oldest goes to a hippy school because he came home and said, "We don't pinch at Kapka, we give hugs."  So it was a surprise when the leprechaun found time to sneak attack the kids while "everyone" was out of the house for the day.  Can you believe that sneaky guy?  He made a horizontal green block in front of the kids' closets.  Piper got vertical streamers and each kid found a bag of golden chocolates.  That leprechaun is tricky and endearing.

Doing my Monday morning calendar routine.  
A friend just lured me over to Instacart and I am hooked.  They have recipes and everything.

 More school potlucks ahead.  I think this will be my contribution:

Piper is not so sure about all those people at my Nana's new home, but she does like the ice cream.  My Nana is indulging in a dessert banana.

I get to lead an art project for Piper's preschool and I think I will do space stuff.

First, I will read this book:

If only I sounded as cute as this:

Then, we will make Galaxy Dough:

And decorate it with these:

For unhealthy families like my own, I will be making moon phases out of Oreo cookies over the summer!

Women's Retreat

I just got back from a wonderful women's retreat weekend.  Blake's school makes time for all the mommies to spend the weekend together in a house so we can surround ourselves with fabulous, female energy.  It was awesome and I am very happy to have these women in my life.
