A Princess Tea Party...

She's 6 so whats more perfect than a Princess Tea Party for a Princess named Aurora? She loved her Castle cake with none other than Princess Aurora at the front door! It took me about 5 hours to make including the 310 forget me nots that I cut from fondant but was well worth it for my princess!
I thought this flower teacup was so sweet....I found it at the thrift store for $1, how can you beat that!
This cute little bunny teapot was another score from the thrift store and she loved it!


Princess Aurora enjoying her tea with Princess Snow White.....(we served Iced Tea).

It was a great Birthday Party for my girl, I can hardly believe she is 6, seems like she was 3 just yesterday!

Feel the Spirit....

The Olympics are here! I decided to take the kids out of school for a field trip to Vanocuver so we could check out the free stuff and see what we could find as tourists in our own part of the world.....

The kids were amazing all day....we stood in line for about an hour just to get into the Coke Pavilion located in Live City. I felt like I was jumping onto a plane just getting through the security to enter Live City. Our bags were looked through and our stuff put into bins for searching and we even walked through body sized security machines. I do appreciate the fact that we were kept safe though and it was really a quick process. Once inside we stood in line for about an hour to enter the Coke Pavilion, the kids were amazing, no one whined! The best part for the kids was saying "Hi" to the Coke bear!

While we were wandering the streets we came upon Fin the Canucks mascott. The kids were super excited to see this guy!

Look can you see the fence, I mean the Olympic Flame from the Cauldron? The fencing around the Cauldron was a bit much and totally an eyesore but at least we had the opportunity to see it....

Afte 10 and a half hours on the streets of Vancouver this is exactly what I wanted to do. Eva fell asleep while we were walking to the Stadium Skytrain and stayed asleep during the entire train ride.....
