HAPPY BITHDAY SELAH!!!!!! My hope is that you will remember your 10th birthday forever! It was your first birthday sleepover with lots of emoji fun!
These girls left here with so much emoji fun all thanks to Oriental Trading! Emjoi characters are a hot thing in my daughter's grade right now...well for a few months. These girls had so much fun winning emoji prizes! We had inflatable balls, to poppers, to rainbow poop lollipops, inflatable balls, to notebooks, and pencils! There was emoji everything. They all had a few things in a gift bag but then we played a fun dice game where they won more and more prizes. The dice game was simple, if they rolled a certain number there was something they had to do. So it went as follows
1. pass to the right
2. pass to the left
3. get a piece of candy
4. eat a piece of candy
5. Steal from a friend
6. Get a prize
The girls loved this game more then I had anticipated! WIN WIN for me! Seriously, this party was so easy to plan because I did all the shopping of emoji items in one spot, Oriental Trading! It was super fast and easy!
The party started outside where the girls were playing on the playground for awhile. Then we painted pumpkins as EMOJI of course! Here are a couple of my favorites!
Don't they look cute? After being outside for some time the girls were hungry for pizza and cupcakes! I got all my emoji plates also on Oriental Trading! SO FUN!
I love planning my kids birthday parties. This one was delayed but overall everyone had fun. Even in my small house, we fit the girls in really good... even though my air mattress lost some air and some of the girls were on the floor by morning...oops. I think I won mom of the year for this birthday party!

St. Patrick's day is March 17th so its approaching quickly. I have a few ideas on art and food projects that i want to do with the kiddos. Hopefully I will have enough time to complete them and share them with you. This was a super easy one for those little hands. I cut the stripes of colored paper but if you are working with a preschooler or school aged child then they can practice cutting. The two toddler boys here only had to glue the pieces on their piece of paper. EASY, but they enjoyed it! :) It sure has brightened my kitchen with them hanging on the fridge! :) I also talked more about the Promise God gave us with the rainbow since I know that history a whole lot better then the history of the Irish Holiday!
MY MEMORIES SUITE Review and giveaway! (#1 rated scrapbook software) The above is one of the scrap pages I have created. Super easy and super fast. I only took a couple minutes to create a 8 page photo book. I am still going to do some more with adding more embellishments! The below is one I created all from scratch and it only took me about 5 minutes! :) SO EASY! Here is a great video explaining more about the product. There are also tutorials available on youtube.com I am not sure if you are like me but I have spent hours online trying to upload photos to the web to place them into something I was trying to create. THE BIGGEST BONUS to My Memory Suite is the fact that it is downloaded to your computer so you do not have to wait forever for a picture to upload! It made my experience much quicker then other programs I have used online. The scrapbook software was very easy to download on my computer and did not take long to learn how to create. :) One feature t
