- I got 15 rolls of adhesive for my ATG. My supplier is no longer in business so I was stocking up.
- I got my latest CARDS magazine
- I got these awesome little treats from Savvy Mom! They are called Sipahhs...the kids loved them! They are delightful straws filled with 'flavour beads' I will call them. They are also allergen free (no nuts, milk, soy...hooray!)
I hope to have more creative adventures to share over the weekend...it's been a busy week here!

Here is Sarah showing her stuff...it was hard to get a picture of her because the new bike is SO fast!!! ;)
Now here is Sean who is showcasing his muddy pants, coat and mitten (the boy doesn't miss a beat!) He even rode directly into a snowbank...even I can't explain it...but I do know where he gets it from!!! He finished today's ride off by crashing 3 more times and breaking not just his horn but also his bell!!! Definitely my boy!!!
It is nice to see that spring is slowly waking up...at least we have had the bicycles out! Even Martin was on his today and they have another ride planned for tomorrow!
Anyway, we had a fabulous visit with family on Saturday and we enjoyed some great food! I made these boxes (I used my Cricut to do the cutting and I did the rest) and taped the tags one...the best part was the treat inside...each box had one of our homemade Easter Cream Eggs in it. Yummy!!!
I had planned on baking a simple spice cake for dessert (honestly!) but then the kids saw my Mini Easter Egg pan and it was all over!!! So, I took a break and decorated some Easter Eggs! The kids LOVED them!!! Aren't they delightful?
We had a great family filled weekend...although we did miss one set of in-laws that I hope we can connect with soon!

Today was the much anticipated Creative Kids Luau! Sean has asked me every morning for the last few mornings "Is today the Lu Owww??" He had his Hawaiian shirt all picked out and even put it on yesterday he was so excited!
So here is some of my stuff all ready to go...
we used the flowers and neon straws to make Leis, we used Plastic Easter Eggs and filled them with dry pasta to make Marraccas then decorated them with some podge and bright tissue paper, we made flowers out of tissue for the girls' hair and made pins for the boys' shirts. Then we enjoyed a tropical smoothie and some tropical fruit for snack!
Here are the kids all dolled up! They had a great time! They especially enjoyed the special bag of tropical treats I sent home with everyone (you can see my little Palm Tree treat bags in the photo above). The Moms loved those too!
We will definitely have more themed events in the future as the children all LOVED the Hawaiian Theme!!!
