I've been getting things together for K's birthday. He picked the theme, pink teaparty. Since its impossible to find boy's pink shirts I dyed this shirt and sewed a pink three on it. I also made these little garden banners for the kids to decorate and take home.

Its been quite a long time since I've made any new gnomes. My mom came over to help with the boys and I used the opportunity to make a few gnomes. :) The green one was a long overdue swap gift for a friend, the blue one was a new sister gift to a friend, and the sunny flowery one is our new summer gnome. I had a lot of fun sewing the flowers on his belly.

K's 3rd birthday is coming up. He had requested a pink tea party. My mom bought me this great bundt cake mold of bugs. So this was my trail run at making vegan bundt cake. They turned out great! And they taste super good too!

Tried the egg paint bomb project:
I saved our egg shells for quite awhile before we were ready. They were really easy to fill and glue shut. The problem though was that none of the kids were strong enough to actually break the eggs (the kids are were 2, 3, and 4). In the end us adults threw some and the kids stomped on them.
Its been quite awhile since my last post. Right after having the baby we ran off to Indianapolis for a month, so its been pretty hectic. We are finally settling back into a routine at home, although I am having a terrible time figuring out where to fit posting to my blog into that. Anyway here are some of the things we've been up to since coming home:
A silk fort in the backyard
A visit to my brother's new recording studio.
I've been crafting madly so I'll be back soon with pictures.
