It's been a busy but good weekend around here with the main event being the boys' birthday party. Yesterday, after a busy day of lessons and last minute preparations, I discovered these lovelies waiting for me:
My dear friend Luise sent me these to celebrate the new house and blog. I have such amazing friends. I am so thankful and touched.
Next up, I had to decorate a cake for the boys. I like to buy a cake from our local grocery store and then decorate it to add a personal touch. This reduces the mess and anxiety and I still feel like I've done something special for the boys.
Since I forgot to snap a before pic - this is a pic from google images to give you an idea of what it looked like before I started (minus the swirls and add cupcakes underneath). It's complicated I know but stay with me ;)
And this is what I came up with:
Considering I decorated it at 10pm the night before, I was pretty happy with how it turned out.
The party was held at an indoor trampoline park called Skyzone. Definitely a good way to get some exercise. Here is an action shot from my oldest (who I am struggling to terms with the fact turned 8) doing trampoline basketball.
So as you can see it was another action packed weekend at Casa Marshall - but that's how we like it.
I leave you today with this amusing item:
