The New Dress

75. Sew my DD a dress.
I saw this pillow case dress at a thrift store and thought I could totally make it. Well, I went to my MIL house a month ago and showed her the picture. She has been sewing for years and normally works off of pattern. Me on the other hand will see something I like and want to create it from scratch. She stood next to me for support and available for questions as I made a dress for my DD 5th birthday party. Here is a picture of her with her party dress on standing in front of her presents.

Let The Party Begin

72. Go all out for my DD 5th B-Day Party.
Very excited my DD is 5 years old today.  We had her birthday party a couple weeks back and it turned out awesome!  The theme was cupcakes; the kids got to decorate their cupcakes and the decorations were all cupcake related.
My sister made this cool sign so everyone would know where the party was. 
The table.
 Love this pic of Trinity eating her cupcake.

The Presents
The day ended up being a little cold but not to bad.  We all had a wonderful time.  She was very excited that her friends from preschool came plus other friends and the whole family.

I Got Bit By The Creative Bug

70. Get 5 decorative items for my home. (1/5)

I got bit by the creative bug and almost by a spider.  I put together a spring time wreath for my front door a few weeks back.  I finally got around to taking a picture this morning.  Since it's fabric it needed a little fluffing up.  I took it off my front door and fluffed it up with my hand and put it back on my door.  I saw something on the fabric and almost grabbed it when I realized it was a spider.  I don't know why I was so surprised to see a spider but I was.  This is my first ever wreath hanging and it never even crossed my mind that a spider would want to live in it.  Now I know better the next time I pick it up.  Minus the spider what do you all think?

Camping and Fishing

DH really enjoys taking our kiddos fishing.  So when we went camping last month they were super excited to break out their fishing poles and tackle boxes.  My BIL and DH took them so my sis and I got to relax, chat and play cards.  Love those Mommy breaks when I get them.  :)
