13 years ago and... a Pinata!!!


As I may have mentioned, my husband and I are celebrating 10 years married this month. That day passed on Thursday.. And I wanted to post a few pictures for my husband.. a few remember these? pictures.. They were taken 13 years ago when we were just dating.. just a couple of knuckle-headed little kids who didn't know where this relationship was taking us. Seriously, don't I look like a Baby?!! The first one was taken in front of Bobby's apartment, and the last 2 were taken by Bobby, when - for about a week - he would wait for me at my car and when I would get out of class, he would snap my picture. ha ha.. that is a funny memory. Anyway, I miss you, hon... (he is in North Carolina for work)

And now to that Pinata that I am working on for Allie's birthday next weekend. The first layer of Paper Mache on the balloons:

I did the second layer with colored tissue paper and Allison had fun popping the balloons. I should of taken a picture of that..but I am only one person, and I had to hold the balloon... so.. that probably wouldn't have worked.. ANYWAY...

Allison thought, this would make a perfect hat!

And Emily agreed:

Then, I cut 3 of the balloons in half.. to form a flower.

I have to complete the pink center, to make it round.. this is where the candy will go.. and I have to strengthen up the petals and attached them to the center.

I have a way to go.. But, I think it will turn out great!

I have a few seriously baby pictures of you stashed away at my house. I just saw them earlier today looking for old STAGE photos. I came across some Godspell ones. I'll have to scan and send them to ya!
