|I wanted to make super cute tags, but as with everything I ran out of time and steam.|
So Pork Chop is 8 now, and I am not as cool as I used to be. I really thought I had until he was at least 10 before that happened. But alas my kid is growing too fast. There was a class trip and I said I would volunteer. I am so lucky that at work we get one day a year to volunteer and get paid for it. I mean really, how cool is that?
|Simple as that, print it onto icing sheets!|
So I got the letter that he was going to the Royal Winter Fair. I used to take him every year, but there is less and less to do for kids his age. I mean it's not bad, but for the price for us it's just not something I plan to do any more until he is older and asks to go.
Fun fact when I went with him when he was 4 or 5 I met a lady and for some reason the topic of weight loss came up, and she told me about having gastric bypass. And that was how I got myself into the topic and got myself taken care of. Weird how things work out I tell you.
|This was the set up, cookies, icing sheets and somewhere was the icing too.|
Anyway, I told him I would go and he was all "ok" then I go to work and book the day and get it all set, and the next day he tells me he wants to go with his friends mom. Sigh.
I told him I was still going and that I was going to spend time with him, and that we would have fun. I then said I would make cookies for his class. I am officially uncool, and attempting to win the cool kids over with cookies.
|I am getting smarter, instead of lining my table with cookies I put them on trays so I can move them around. It only took me like 3 years to finally do this.|
So I went on line to find a logo for the fair. And can I tell you that they have the most boring logo ever. I mean really, I wanted a circle, because I like to work with those, less work really. And all I got were rectangles. So I got Hubby to work his magic, no idea how he did it, and really I better not ask. He may expect me to clean something to thank him, and we all know that's not going to happen.
|See my little tooth pick thingy, it is amazing, I love it!|
|I outline them all first.|
|Then I go back and flood them|
|All logo'd up.|
|Just so you can see how I sprinkle my disco dust. Cute little shakers.|
|I am so embarrassed with how crappy they look, but I was tired and figured the kids would care less.|
So the day of the trip I go in and the teacher gives us our groups. I had Pork Chop and two other boys. And we were told to basically have fun and do what we wanted. So we got on the bus, which had the craziest bus driver ever. The kids loved her. She told them as long as they stayed in their seats and listened they could listen to music and be as loud as they wanted. Well then she put on the radio and Gangam Style came on and the kids were screaming and doing the dance in their seats. It was hilarious. Also did you know that 8 year olds like to change the words to songs? I cannot type it here, but they make up their own word, enough said.
|All bagged up and ready to go.|
|Go Pork Chop go!!|
After that super long day we got back to school and Pork Chop handed out his cookies. We then went to a super amazing kitchen store and I shopped like crazy. Why? Well I was very lucky to have been given a gift certificate from a friend for making her wedding desert table. It was amazing and I didn't even spend it all yet!
After that big Friday, we settled in and Pork Chop got his braces put on the next day. He was very upset and I get that. I think he is getting used to it now, so perfect teeth here we come!
|These are the left over cookies I had, I wrote on them for my friends at work who had kids. The thing 1, well there are four kids and for the life of me I could not remember their names. But one of them had a shirt with that on it, so they all got thing cookies. The other people, well they still got cookies but I didn't do anything fancy. They still ate them all though!|
