two kids and a cake :)

Well, I'm not sure what happened to
Pink Week,*
 but I decided to share
some  pink love of my own! :)
Olivia pretty in pink!
And it's been awhile, since I posted a pic of my favorite little man!
So far he's lovin' his new Lightning McQueen potty!

 I thought you might like a peek at the cake I made for the art teacher at my school.
{We draw names to celebrate birthdays, and I was happy to get Mrs. M's!}
I made a rectangle Funfetti cake and cut it to look like an artist's palette.
Then I sprayed a cookie sheet with Pam and melted a
few Lifesaver candies to represent blobs of paint. 
I added a Happy Birthday cupcake topper that I'd saved
for just such a time as this, and a cheap paintbrush for effect,

~birthday cake extrordinaire~
{and so simple!}
*Update Wednesday night~
PINK WEEK has been extended to ten days and starts today at
