There isn't very many outfits this week due to my being sick. 

As the previous weeks I'm linking up with The Pleated Poppy and Mama Go Round.

And of course the kids had to get into the self-timer action.

This is what I wore to Monkey's party. You can check out my decor for the party here and I hope to be posting more pictures from the party later today.

And that's all you get because I got sick and have been bumming around in sweats. Tomorrow gonna try and head back to work. I hope the cough doesn't keep me up all night and the sinus headaches go away.  I've been pretty miserable. And can I say after 2 days of sleeping getting up this morning sucks, royally.


Pamper Party

So to celebrate Monkey's 7th birthday I planned a pamper party for her at home. Over the summer she went to a party at a salon that did something similar but with a much heftier price tag. Being the cheap frugal person I am I decide to do this at home.

 We did face masks

And we coloured.

Getting nails, done, face masks and makeup.

And we had a dance party in the basement waiting for more guests to arrive.

These are the headbands I made for all the girls, each one is a little different but I love the way they turned out.

 And we had some princesses visit.

And we had cupcakes

And the completed gift for Monkey.

This week between being sick, having to go to Church for Monkey's school's Advent mass (that we were only told about on Tuesday) and life it's taking me since Wednesday to upload pictures for this post.

Hope you enjoyed the pictures of the special day as we enjoyed the actual day.


Pamper Party - The Decor

On the weekend we celebrate Monkey's 7th birthday this weekend with a pamper party.   I'm a bit under the weather now so I'm not up for a full post but I will share some of the decor from the party.

Holiday Party and a lot of craziness

We had a busy weekend and it's going to be a busy week so there isn't going to be too many posts from me this week. Over the weekend I: ran to Shoppers Drug Mart and printed out my pictures to use in my Christmas cards and scored 20X the points,  cleaned up the backyard with the kids (put all the summer toys away for the winter), finished making the chocolate picks for the cupcakes for Monkey's party next weekend, made chocolate mustaches for the party, prepared 2 backgrounds and sketches for 2 more wall hangings for 2 birthday girls next weekend, made some paper banners to decorate for Monkey's party and started decorating, went to our work's Holiday party for the kids at the Science Centre, finished up all the loots bags for the party, filled the pinata, took the girls to a birthday party and started working on our Christmas cards. It was a busy a productive weekend,

This week I am trying to do a little of the major cleaning each night and then on Friday night finish it all off. We're in party prep mode. In the morning we are having Monkey's classmates over for a pamper party,nails, face masks, make-up, making body glitter and a spa lunch and in the late afternoon we are having our friends and family over for another party.  This way I only need to clean the house once.

Saturday night we went to the Science Centre, we used to have a family membership and it looks like we might be getting another one in the new year because the kids had sooo much fun. They didn't want to leave.  We had the whole place to ourselves after hours, it was still full since it was all the offices in the GTA but it wasn't crowded.

This is what Muffin was doing waiting for Santa.

And Tutu waiting for Santa.

Monkey went one stage to help just before they started showing the Vandergraph Generator.   She was an electron orbiting the proton,

The girls on the Vandergraph Generator.

Checking out a tornado.

Tutu enjoying Kidspark

Maybe he`ll be a Doctor?

Love it when my kids play together.

 Dizzy baby

Tutu loved the construction area.

And the girls loved the shopping area.

Tonight I did a little more cleaning, I purged a big garbage bag full of toys from the basement toy room while cleaning.  I also worked some more on the birthday wall hangings, they aren't finished but are looking great. I'm so excited I just need to share.
