I have mentioned the board I have at the' Bou. Well, today, the girls and I went by to see how things are going. As you can see, there is some money in the jar. One kind individual donated $5! The rest are ones but hey, it's more than we had a few days ago. I'll take it. The girls thought it was pretty cool to have it up in public like that. If you are in the area, stop by to see the adorableness of the kids AMH is helping.
I don't know what inspired her to want pigtails. Last night Macy asked me when she stopped wearing pig tails and then asked me if I would put them in her hair today. Of course, I agreed since pigtails are my absolute favorite on little girls. For those of you who do not remember Macy at 2, she had pigtails EVERY day. Until she was almost 5 when either she or Delaney ever drew a picture of her, she had pigtails. It was a sad day for me when she wouldn't let me put her hair up any more.
On Wednesday, Macy and Delaney went to Z Pizza with the Clubhouse. Macy enjoyed it so much, she pleaded with me to take her again. I agreed to take her today. I had a coupon so I ordered a 14" 1/2 bacon (Delaney's choice) and 1/2 extra chefs (Macy's choice). I figured I'd have several pieces left over but to my utter astonishment, Delaney ate 3 pieces and Macy ate 2.5! I have never seen them eat that much.
On most track-outs, we cupcake. Well, we start together and inevitably, the girls get distracted by the K girls and I finish by myself. This time the girls chose pandas. I have done several different designs and noticed that many would be better if I had the extra large cupcakes. The other day I was at the grocery store and found "Texas" sized muffin pans. I thought I'd just be able to go to the AC Moore and pick up some liners but no luck. So I had to improvise and use parchment paper as liners. It wasn't ideal but it worked well enough.
Here's the beginning of the pandas. The little ones are the heads.
Here they are in process
And the finished product! Aren't they cute?
I'm a mother of 2 girls living in NC. I've dabbled in photography on and off but really this is just for fun
