Disney: Our Trip

Here is a video of our trip....I plan to pop back with some more posts about what we did on each day, etc., but for now, here is a video to enjoy.

It was hard to fit 8 days of awesomeness into 30 minutes, but I think I captured the feeling of our trip - amazing!!!

Disney: The Surprise

I know I have been totally absent from the blog lately....I have several posts I'm "working on", but just haven't been feeling it lately, so I took a break. During my break I found out that there are more people that read this blog than I ever would have imagined....more people than just my mom!

We just got back from a great vacation to Disney World and I am hoping to do a couple posts about the trip. We decided to surprise the kids again this time....mostly because Lily told us that if we ever went again, she wanted it to be a surprise (it was much harder this time around).

A Woodland Animal Birthday Party

Lydia's First Birthday (and party) was Saturday, November 1st.

We celebrated with a Woodland Animal themed party.

I made her birthday invite and then based everything else around it.











I got all the ideas for the food from pinterest {of course}



The day before the party I found hedgehog, owl and squirrel cookie cutters at World Market for $.99! It was meant to be!


These "Mushroom Caps" were made with cream cheese frosting I died pink and then I stuck white chocolate chips in them upside down.

The chocolate mushrooms are available for purchase at World Market.

The acorns were made using Hershey Chocolate Kisses, Mini Vanilla Wafers and Mini Chocolate Chips, then I used melted Candy Quick to "glue" them together.


Hedgehogs were doughnut holes dipped in Candy Quick and then dipped in chocolate jimmies.



The cake was done by The Gingerbread House. They do amazing work, I just gave them her invitation and they recreated it on the cake. I cannot say enough good things about The Gingerbread House cakes, they are amazing looking and tasting.







Lydia's Smash Cake also by The Gingerbread House


For the "big kids" we had Sub Sandwiches and a Chili Bar.






Favor Bags were a S'more bag with: Teddy Grahams, Mini Marshmallows and Whoppers







I made this little banner to go on Lydia's highchair during her cake...and you know what? I forgot to move it to the highchair - oh well!


I made Lydia's scrap skirt, her shirt and her headband, her legwarmers are from TheRitzBoutique Etsy seller. {on a side note: she is starting to sell leggings now that are blowing my mind}



I also made matching shirts for Lily and Liam from extra fabric that was left over from Lydia's skirt. I made Lily's match bow and her leg warmers are from the same Etsy seller. 















During our picture with the cake, someone may have dipped their little toes in it!








Singing Happy Birthday!!


Time for cake!





















She had a wonderful first birthday!!!

The next day we opened presents...she loved it and got a lot of amazing gifts!
