We have several sets of rabbit ears that we've collected over the years for the Billion Bunny March. Add a waistcoat and pocket watch and you're ready for Wonderland!
Grass skirt, leis and a real coconut bra... if only the weather in Ottawa could be a little more Hawaiian too.
80s Fashion Victim
I wore this outfit for a pub crawl back in university and my mom recently sent it to me when she was cleaning out my old closet. When Chris opened the package he said "ummm... there's a shirt in here that looks like the 80s threw up on it"
As Axel's birthday falls so close to Halloween, I was hoping to save a little sanity by working his Halloween costume into his party theme. He was really excited about his upcoming Rocket and Groot party, but, three-year-olds being the fickle creatures that they are, on the day of the party he insisted that he would be the Flash and nothing could convince him otherwise.
Now that Axel is getting older he has strong opinions on things, like how his party should be, which can be a little challenging for me, but on the flip side he is able to help out with the preparations which is a lot of fun.
This theme worked well for the skill levels of a preschooler since nebulas and starscapes don't need to be precise and actually look best a little messy. My little helper and I had a great time baking and decorating galaxy star sugar cookies and painting the photobooth backdrop. His pride in the projects was so heartwarming, I'm smiling just thinking of it.
I hope you are enjoying the long weekend! We've been having lots of fun with Easter stuff now that Axel is old enough to be excited about bunnies and eggs.
Axel helped blow out and dye the eggs. I'm impressed that we only broke one!
We used food colouring, water, vinegar and a bit of olive oil to get some pretty marbled eggs. And it was easy enough for a two-and-a-half-year-old (with a bit of supervision).
We decided to cook a turkey and invited a few friends over for dinner. I really need to host dinner parties more often, they're so fun!
I set the table with cute napkin bunnies (thanks Martha Stewart!) and flowers in some stuff from our silver tea set collection.
Since we have a huge collection of bunny ears for the Billion Bunny March, I had enough for everyone at dinner.
This morning Axel hunted for eggs around the house (the ones we dyed and a few chocolate ones too). I think Chris and I had as much fun hiding the eggs and watching Axel search for them as Axel had fi…
