Happy 4th of September--a little late

Okay so it is a day late,
After all the party prep yesterday, meeting with Katelyn's teacher, taking Alyssa's picture, and decorating a cake I crashed early last night. I woke up this morning and after playing with the girls and Alyssa'a new doll, I headed to the computer to post a winner.
And I felt this tickling on my legs. I looked down & I was standing in a swarm of ants. They were all over the floor, I think they were after powdered sugar from making frosting yesterday, but it could also have been water, In-N-Out crumbs, or just the heat. Needless to say I have been busy, busy, busy! The kitchen table had to be moved outside, the floor mopped and believe it or not, even the inside of the dishwasher washed out because the ants were in there. I counted 4 trails of ants coming in from outside spreading out across the floor and going nowhere and everywhere. YUCK, YUCK, YUCK!

On a different note, have you checked out the newest Bunny Hill BOM it is the cutest block with a Scottie Dog and apples. I have learned how to get the block a few hours early (I'm not telling), so yesterday before my mom came over for the family birthday gathering I snuck into the craft room for a few minutes and made this adorable dog. And the fabric with the math is going to be my basket! I am going to be taking out one apple, and putting in a football! Honestly, I have to celebrate both the start of a school year and the football season. At least it's not a whole quilt this time right? I don't think I am obsessed...

Alyssa loved her Monkey Cake. It is not my best frosting job, but she was thrilled with it.
She also got a hide and seek monkey toy, a stuffed monkey, a monkey water bottle and a monkey puzzle. Do you sense a theme? So who won her prize with the monkey pattern-well, no one! Since no one really wanted it, I thought I would give a second place prize that everyone would be excited to get. But you have to wait, I need to introduce you to Lily first. Remember Rebecca modeling the selvage dress, Lily is also sporting an outfit I made.....

I think they're cute, and much faster than making the fabric with selvages then sewing them into clothes.

So who is winning the Mommy Prize Pack.... DianeH. And for reading the fine print in the blog, I am enclosing a cupcake just for you. Don't worry frosting won't get all over everything, this is a little pincushion.
And I opened up the 2nd place prize to everyone who posted a comment, and Lori Pierce wins the other cupcake. I hope that you will use it, I love having one by my sewing machine, and another the ironing board.

Have a great day, everyone.

Looks like a great birthday party! The "ant thing" was making me itchy and creepy just thinking about them! Hope they are gone for good! Cute cupcakes, too.

Love the pictures of Alyssa on her birthday. Looks like it was a fun party. I think the cupcake pin cushion is adorable too.
