WWW ~ Cole's 6th Birthday, Cupcakes & Treats

Oh my what a weekend we had! Friday was Cole's birthday so I made cupcakes for the classroom and gave them each a color book and of course a lolipop rings! The individual cups cake turned out great!!!
Then Saturday was my first Saturday off in a while. It was so nice but it wasn't like it really was a day off! LOL we had a busy day it started early and didn't stop. I was a little sad the lady that filled in for me had a GREAT day, yes just a little jealous ... haha!
Now my second attempt at cupcakes was a cupcake cake ... let's just say it tasted good :). The kids had so much fun and I was so happy to be able to let all the kids enjoy themselves.
Cupcakes for the classroom
My attempt at a cupcake cake!
I learned that the frosting with tips is tricky!!
I had color books with crayons on the tables for the kids.
I obviously can't count I had one extra :)
The kids, some even dressed up!!!
You know how hard it is to get all kids in pic & facing forward!
We had face painting!
Cole loving transformers went for bumble bee!
Yes and a daddy got talked into by daddy's little girl!
Fun with Balloons, Pizza, Cupcakes and toys!
Rick thought my cake would be funny looking so he got Cole a special cake

Cole's BFF from across the street came to the party and his mom Brenda came along. It was so nice to actually sit and talk to her. We're going to put the boys in a parade next weekend. While talking I found she loves the peanut butter treats I bring over so I found two new recipes to try!! I'm so excited I have a new adult friend to talk to, talking to the kids can only take me so far. I even hung out talking to her and her husband for a few hours on Sunday! Yeah, now onto the treats.

  7. Jeeze girl! Do you ever stop? The party was great and the kids had a TON of fun (they were mad at me for making them leave but we had too many other commitments to stay any longer - they don't really understand that tho).
    I thought your cupcake cake looked fine! Next time you get a day off- Run AWAY (you know like to that free spa with the yummy massage boys and the fat-free-but-still-delicious-food and the oh, wait. That was a dream).
