The last couple of weeks have been busy, busy, busy. My son just celebrated his 5th birthday and planning a party for 17 kids (including mine) can make your life a little hectic. But the joy on his face and the permanent smile still plastered on at bedtime makes everything worthwhile.

Lizard cake:

The food: Swamp water(bottled water), jungle juice(juice box), snake skins(Cheetos), frog slime(green jello), creep cakes (cupcakes),  lizard eggs(grapes), baby lizards (cookies),   and lizard legs(chicken wings), Lizard sandwiches, pizza with lizard guts (pepperoni pizza), lizard scales (potato chips) (not shown in pictures)

The entertainment: A reptile show

Crafts and games: lizard blower, lily pad toss, snakes and ladders

I love spring!

I love spring! I love tulips, daffodils, lilies, and hydrangeas. I love when all the snow melts, when the grass turns green and the flowers start to open. I love listening to the birds chirp and the warmer days. Spring is my favorite season of the year. Today is a gorgeous spring day and to celebrate I am sharing my Garden Fairy cake with all of you.

My garden fairy with her pretty pearlized wings and a flower in her hair, sitting on some leaves among the daisies and mushrooms, while watching the caterpillars, snails, ladybugs, butterflies and bees.

I hope you like it as much as I do.
