We're celebrating Patrick's 1/2 birthday, at school today . . . since he has an August birthday. His "real" 1/2 birthday was actually in February, but they have alot of summer kids in his class . . . so the teachers spread them out a bit.
I made cupcakes, Patrick's choice . . . white cupcake, white icing, and sprinkles! The below picture, I was attempting a Food Network "glamor" shot . . . how'd I do?! :o) Do you have one of these cupcake carriers? If not, I highly recommend it . . . it's wonderful! It holds 24 cupcakes and doesn't get icing bumped on anything! I got it at Walmart, for under $20 . . . we figured since our boys are just starting into elementary school, we'll get alot of years of use!
I took tomorrow off, from work, so I can go to Patrick's party. I don't think I've worked a full week in April . . . so why start the last week of April?! :o) Fannie Jo (AKA: JoJo), a friend at work, and I were discussing the May calendar today. You know . . . May is looking pretty much the same for me! I'm not working a full week until June! These end of school year parties, field trips, and Teacher Appreciation luncheons are detrimental to my vacation balance! I need to attend these things now, because in a few years (so I'm told) . . . the boys won't want anything to do with us, being at school!? That can't be true . . . can it?! :o) Luckily, I get five weeks of vacation every year and have a very understanding (male) boss.
Patrick's really looking forward to this tomorrow! His first school party . . . oh you know I'll be there with my camera!! It'll have to be scrapbooked too!
Have a wonderful day today! Thanks for stopping by my craft room!
