My MIL sent me an email about cookies. Last year, I made cookies for her to give people at work, and apparently, a couple of them LOVED them, so they asked her if I could make some for them. One woman wants ice skates and the other, footballs. As of right now, I know the football lady needs 70. 70 footballs. How much do you charge for something like that? My wrists are going to be killing me after that. It will be fun though! The ice skates are the ones that most interest me. I've already decided that they will be white, with edible shimmer powder on them. How pretty, right?
On to what I've been doing. Tomorrow is Thumbelinas birthday party. She was at her dads last weekend so we couldn't do the party on her birthday. It gave me an extra week, so I'm not complaining. I will complain though about the lack of RSVP's. Is it really that hard? Do parents not realize that a person needs to have a head count for treats and food? Are they rude or just clueless? I'm sure I put them all on the spot by calling, but I now know there will be 8 people at her party, which is a nice turnout. If they all show up. That's another "WTF?" scenario I wonder about.
Enough stress about that. I handled it, I smiled, I went shopping. From dollar store to dollar store, I trekked to chase down everything I needed. Also, 3 trips to Walmart. (I tend to forget things. Oops!) I think we have it all except for cups and ice. I bought juice packs for the kids. The 100% Juice (bullshit) Capri-Suns? We are having a Scooby Doo cake and I'm ordering 8 pizzas for 27 people. Large pizzas. I hope it's enough.
For the treats, I bought Scooby Doo coloring books and a pack of crayons each. Then yesterday I made sugar cookie dough to make Scooby Snacks! I cut the dough into 3 balls, and colored them purple, teal, and green. Parents are going to LOVE me! I bought the white lunch bags to put them in. I'm going to use the girls markers to write Scooby Snacks on the front. The Scooby Snacks are going to mysteriously go missing, which will lead to our Scavenger Hunt! Yay! Alice is in charge of that. I still have to print the clues and glue them on index cards.
We are also playing Wrap the Mummy/Mummy Chase. I bought $1 Store toilet paper for the kids to wrap Mr. Peaches up in. When they are done, he's going to break lose and chase them. What 4/5 year olds won't love it?
This morning, as soon as I got up, I started baking cookies. I accidentally cooked the blue ones a minute too long, but i figured that kids don't care.
I had a small amount of dough from each color, so I mixed them together, and made a few tie dyed Scooby Snacks. Seemed fitting, right?
