So on Friday, I was given a gift from my mother-in-law of almost an entire day off from parenting duties. My plans run the few quick errands that I had planned to do with Hazel and then come home and finish my quilt. However, I came home from running my errands and called a friend to check in with her. Her son's first birthday party is today, and I knew they were having an awful week of doctor's appointments due to his food allergies. (He is allergic to just about everything but now needs to avoid touching all wheat and dairy.)When I spoke with her my day changed to helping her with the party. The only things she had for it so far were the decorations I made for her, the napkins I bought for her and the cake her mother-in-law was making (which her son cannot touch or eat). You may remember I showed you the invitation and pieces of the banner I designed for her when I reviewed My Memories Software. Well, using that same software I made her a few more posters to hang around for decorations.

I also put together some crafts for the kids. (They have 70 people in extended family alone and there were kids everywhere!) Last night I cut some felt pieces. I intended them to be like the Christmas trees that were all over Pinterest where you could decorate and redecorate, but the kids had other ideas. We also had left out glitter glue, gem stickers and felt snowflakes, foam snowflakes and some snow themed oversized tags. The kids glued and had fun decorating them to go home. Here are some pictures I took last night of what I intended. (I'll be cutting another one later for Hazel to have to play with.)
As for the rest of the weekend, yesterday was unusually warm here so we spent some time outside. Hazel wanted to blow and chase bubbles. We also go the bubble machine working and were pretending to be bubble fairies and butterflies flying through the bubbles.
I hope you had a wonderful weekend!! Now maybe I'll get to finish my quilt.
