Happy Birthday Brooke!

Brooke, my niece Emma and their friend Rachel all have
birthdays in April, so we decided to have a joint
party and let them invite all their friends.

Brooke turned 9!

Emma turned 11!

And Rachel also turned 11!

I don't even remember how many people came.

The girls requested chocolate chip cookie cake. Bethany
and Brooke also made cake pops. They were quite the challenge. They really needed to be put in the freezer for a while, but since we waited til the last minute there was no time to do that. They kept crumbling while they tried to ice them. But, they tasted good.

Make a wish!

The kids did a relay race, balloon pop and, a group favorite-fruit basket turnover.

My brother in law Dominic and his new wife, Kim. And, of course, Travis.

Thrifty Finds!

The ENTIRE family went out yesterday for a neighboring city-wide yard sale. We even took my nephew Devin and Tyler's friend Jack. You KNOW the looks we got when all 13 of us got out of the van.....

Two cute baskets for 75 cents.

I just love animal prints and we don't have anything special in our master bath right now, so all of my finds today will go in that bathroom. This set was $5.

This $2 picture will go in there as well. Now I just have to find some towels.

Total spent: $7.75.

Next week is another neighboring city-wide yard sale and the teens' missions fundraiser yardsale for our church.

I can't wait!

Head to Rhoda's Southern Hospitality to find some more Thrifty Treasures!

Monday Musings

Because the little kids can't handle keeping gum in their mouth, I don't give it out very often.

I had some in my purse and Thomas, who is five, knew it.

Thomas: "Can you give me some of your gum? I won't tell anyone else. We can keep it just between you and me, okay?"
