The family that frosts together...


While Clara has properly embraced her outdoorsy future by accepting a hiking birthday party Lilly's in a rebellious stage. She insisted that we not hike, but rather that we do crafts and have a ladybug-themed party.

Ok, ok. I've got two more years to work on her.

Of course, we're not happy to merely have a bunch of ladybug plates and napkins. Oh no. We decided we needed live ladybugs. The kind that crawl around. And rather than do distribution into the you-gave-my-kid-what-to-bring-home bug houses outside we opted to do it on the kitchen table.

And much hilarity ensued.

Although one child did in fact have a bit of a fearful reaction (no, not me (while the kids could see)) it was a big success. Just like the cupcakes that Amy painstakingly made. And the cake that Amy painstakingly made.

And just like the cake, we had ladybugs all around the house (and under shirts and in pants) for the next week. In fact, we still have some in the fridge. Some of those are even still in their container.
