Well I can tell you this much. It sure wasn't a bunch of 9 and 10 year old girls!
I think Slumber Party is an oxymoron.
Trust me - there is NO slumbering going on here tonight. Well the cats, Sam and Brody might be asleep, but that is even in doubt.
This was the first year since Baby Bee turned 4 that I haven't thrown a big theme party.
|Saw this Milk Glass Taco used for rolled napkins over at Heather Bullard. Went right out and found my own Milk Glass Taco and used it for this first time tonight.|
This year I said SIMPLE. This year I said QUIET celebration. This year I said I WILL NOT EXHAUST MYSELF HAVING A BIRTHDAY PARTY FOR BABY BEE.
Apparently I don't listen to myself very well - or I've never been on the parent end of a slumber party.
As I write this it's 12:11 AM and there is no silence from our sunroom. They just now came in and said, "The bricks on the patio are white and so is the grass. It must be snowing!" Well there is a very slight and very rare chance of snow tonight, but it ain't here yet. I guess I shouldn't complain about active imaginations.
I should be making the muffins for in the morning, but I'm too exhausted - and yet I'm here blogging. I think that's because I can sit while I blog and not so much when I'm baking muffins.
|Here - enjoy some cake while I get those muffins started.|
Okay, the fresh blueberry muffins are baking right now. Tomorrow morning (which will be here ALL TOO SOON) I will make Baby Bee's favorite muffins - Pumpkin Chocolate Chip - for the girls to enjoy.
Do you see those cupcakes? I really wish this was a scratch'n'sniff blog because those cupcakes smelled divine. They are from the Cake Doctor cookbook - Buttermilk Devil's Food Cake and Peanut Butter Frosting. Now I know what makes the inside of Reese's Peanut Butter Cups so stinkin' good - powdered sugar and butter! Ummmm......there are none left and I only got one. I sat in the kitchen for a bit visiting with a friend and they were g......o.....n......e.....
Here are the girls lookin' all sassy for their picture.
(So far the sassy is just for show - but rest assured - I know those full on sassy days are coming.)
It's getting quieter out there. Fewer and fewer voices........
Almost time for me to go to bed. The muffins are nearly done and SO AM I!
Thank you so much for buzzin' by today! I know Baby Bee will be delighted to know you visited. Hurry back and I'll make some more of those divine cupcakes just for us to share.
