I am not much of a cake person, so this year for my birthday we had chocolate fondue with cinnamon bears, heart shaped marshmellows, sponge cake, strawberries and blueberries. I had to eat a cinnamon bear first. They are my favorite!
Yes, I am 34. I can't believe it! I was actually freaking out earlier because I thought I was turning 35. It wasn't so bad when I figured out I was only turning 34.
I got an exercise video and some new curlers because my old set I had since high school died. It was a fun day.
I made a little obstacle course for D for Valentine's Day. When he got home from work there was a string tied to the door knob. He had to follow it all over the ENTIRE house to find his present. Have you seen the movie Entrapment where Catherine Zeta-Jones has to weave her way through some lasers. This was my little version of that. It was so fun to watch D weave in and out of all the string. He really got into it! He is such a fun husband.
I got behind on all the birthday presents this year. That is what happens when you have 5 family birthdays all in October. I got M's present done in January as well. She loves loves loves horses and has lots of little play horses. I made her a cute little play mat for her to play with them on.
It has a little fenced in horse coral with bails of hay and a water barrel. There are a few horse jumps as well.
The little barn is a pocket to keep the hay bails and other things in. There is also an apple tree and a garden with fresh veggies for the horses to eat.
And there is a cute little duck pond-complete with ducks!
It turned out so fun! She has lots of fun playing horses on it.
I made this little tent house for H for her birthday. I started before her birthday in October, but didn't get it done until January. I was going to make a card table tent, but she was too tall for a card table, so I had my husband build a PVC pipe frame for it to go on. It is nice because it all rolls up and fits under the bed. I thought it would be cute to make it look French with little shops and a house. This is the house side with a heart shaped window in the door, and a little mail box for letters.
This is the flower shop. We put silk flowers in the Fleur baskets and you can come to the window and buy them.
This side is a little fashion boutique where she can dress up and come prancing out.
This side is my favorite. It is a little pastry shop. There is a tea pot and cup on a cute little table.
I also made felt little cookies to go in the pockets. She loves getting out her tent and playing. It makes for lots of different playtime activities with all the different sides.
