Kate's party could have been a bit more creative on my part, but I was feeling a bit under the weather (worse now) and didn't print out cute labels like I planned....
Here are how the Ice Cream Cone Cupcakes turned out.....
(here's a step by step of how I tried it)
First bake regular size cupcakes and small ones too
Then fill your ice cream cone with candy to help weigh it down. (I used Valentine M&M's)
Next take a bit of your icing and smear a bit on top (think glue) and invert your cupcake on your cone
Do the same with the smaller cupcake
Finally smear that bad boy with tons of icing and add sprinkles or whatever you choose to look like ice cream
It was so funny.....the girls thought they were actual ice cream and couldn't figure out why they wouldn't melt. I finally told them to quit licking the top and take a bite. I giggled watching their faces.
I think I need to hire Lily out. As the guests started arriving she got out her ipod music and made the girls dance and sing. (current tunes mind you....we are hip in this house) stuff like the Fresh Beat Bands "Rock Star" and Miss Gomez's "Love you like a Love Song baby" and other Kidz Bop stuff. The girls were giggling at how funny Lily was. Then she made the girls get on the floor and do the "caterpillar" and they DID.
I think the girls had a great time...I'm sure the parents enjoyed me giving their girls a sugar rush before dinner!
I got to bed by 9 last night thinking....awww sweet bedness.....pillow come to my head and send me to dreamland.....and I did until 9:30 where Lily woke with a screaming fit until 10:30...no idea what was wrong.....I slept from 10:30-1:30 where she did it all over again.....only Reid woke at 2:15 for a boob shake. He really needs to quit this since he only snacked for 15 mins and was out like a light...I think it's more habit now....anywho....I came to bed at 2:30 only to cough until 4:30....non stop. I was in tears I was so tired...I did take some cough medicine only for it not to help.....fell asleep at 4:30 only to wake at 5:15 in another coughing fit....I coughed until 6:40....finally fell asleep only to be woken by miss thang and Reid at 7. Did I mention I'm tired....running on maybe a total of 11 hrs of sleep in 3 days? I'll never get better at this rate.
I thought a cup of warm java with French Van creamer would make my throat feel like a Rock Star...I'm coughing more lungs this morning.....There I sit to drink the warm goodness....when Lily and Reid come running over to me and jump.....It's like that slow motion "NOOOOOOOO"
Splat.....my coffee went all over my hair....down my shirt and all over my skirt. It was like I jumped in a pool of coffee. I tell you today is not my morning. Can I get a do over?
