Last Day of School

Both Xiera and Zella's last day of school was today. They wanted to go out in style with Frozen hairstyles. Xiera's hair was reminiscent of Elsa's while Zella's was very similar to Anna's.

They have grown so much since their first day of school.

Xiera will be going into the 5th grade in the fall and Zella will be a second grader. They both did very well this year. Zella received all plus's on her report card which is equivalent to all A's in the first grade.

Xiera got honor roll 4 quarters in a row and raised her B in Math to an A.

We are so proud of the both of them.

Latest Milestone Achieved

Last Friday after school, Zella told us she was ready to take her training wheels off of her bike and ride without them. After dinner, we went outside and did just that and helped her ride up and down our driveway for about a half an hour.

Then we began letting go, spotting her here and there especially during those turns and then, just like magic.....She was riding all on her own!

We are so proud of you Zella! Congratulations!:)

Teacher Appreciation Tissue Box Cozy Gifts

Today is National Teacher Appreciation Day!

I made these adorable cake tissue box cozies for my daughters' teachers, to show them how thankful I am for all of their hard work and dedication bettering their education. I used Twinkie Chan's FREE pattern as a base pattern to create all of these.
The chocolate cake was created from the original pattern. Instead of mini 5mm pom pom balls, I used mini buttons as sprinkles.

The party cake was created using the the same pattern; with the exception of the strawberry pink icing, and white icing piping along the edges. I also added a few cherries on top.

The rainbow layered cake was slightly different from the rest. I used the original pattern for the white icing and icing piping along the edges but did something a bit different for the cake part. I crocheted rainbow layers with white icing in between each layer. I hot glued mini pom pom balls on the top to resemble sprinkles.

These were so much fun to make! I know the teachers will love them.
