Here's a few pictures prepping for Laurel's party this weekend. I found tons of great ideas on Pinterest and am making most of them - regardless of how much leftover food that will mean in the end!:) The cake pops were very easy to make - I made a sheet of chocolate cake and crumbled it up. I mixed in a tub of icing and then molded the strawberries by hand. For future, I would refrigerate the pops to keep them more firm. I bought red chocolate chips and melted it. Keeping that liquid enough to dip was difficult. But they ended up turning out ok! I made the cake out of a 2 layer circle and lots of fondant. I think this was my best cake yet!

(that is audrey's "snorty" face:))
All day during my birthday, Laurel was asking when it would be her birthday. "Mommy is your birthday over yet?" "After the presents is your birthday over". She knows hers is the next birthday we'll be celebrating at home, so she's been asking about it constantly. Even toy she sees in a commercial is something she wants for her birthday! She decided she wants a Strawberry Shortcake birthday party. Appropriate since she still insists on being called "regular strawberry shortcake"! I just took her to party city to choose decorations and we're all stocked up. I also went to Carter's and toys r us for her presents. All set! Her party will be at a local park so that the kids can play on the playground and we have access to picnic tables.
