Mother's Day Rose Cookies

Today is Mother's day and there is nothing more special for me than spending time with my husband and children. I have had a wonderful day with them today and was truly blessed and showered with wonderful homemade cards and homemade gifts. 

I love homemade things, they are so special and thoughtful and take much longer to do than just simply racing to the store to pick something up. It seems these days we have lost the art making things ourselves because we are usually too busy, time is something that we no longer have and so many of us say "time flies" but time really sits on it's hands as we rush by!

Don't rush today and miss the little things in life that one day will become the big things in our lives.

Happy Mother's Day!

Hobbit Cake and Party

My eldest son turned twelve in January and he is really into the Hobbit. It was required of him to read the book first before seeing the first movie and even then we edited the movie as it's pretty violent for a young child. He is dying to see the second movie, but I have heard it is even worst then the first so we are holding of until he's a lot older, (unfortunately he's not overly happy about that!)

He had a wonderful party and the best part was that he got to share it with his cousins! They happened to be in town so he was completely stoked!

We held the party at a local park and began the adventure like JR Tolken began the book. All the dwarfs, aka children, came and Bilbo, or should I really say we, provided a very rustic feast. Root beer was handed out and of course then came the burps!

After we were all full, the adventure began! We headed off into the woods and down by the river where we met Gollum, found the ring, answered many many riddles and also found Bilbo's dagger, Gandalf's Staff and Thorin's Key, which were hidden deep in the trees and were only allowed to be retrieved if it had the child's name on it. I am thankful we didn't find any snakes!

It was then back to the main park for cake and presents! I enjoyed making this cake so much. It was great fun making all the little details and my favourite part was actually being able to use the White Elephant Christmas Gift! See our little dragon in the background?! We found a use for him after we actually stole him back from the annual Christmas party we attend!

Each child took home a knapsack full of Hobbit surprises, such as apples, riddles, rings, hobbit pops and best of all second breakfast lip balm!

My boy had so much fun and his face was a delight! My silly Hobbit boys!
