Crazy day

Have you ever seen a cupcake like this?! Seriously, how cool is that? A rainbow cupcake. This was from the party at Jake's school today. Please excuse the frosting under my thumb nail. :)

All you do is make a yellow or a white cake mix, separate it in 4 bowls and add the food coloring. then just layer the colors in the cupcake liners. How cute! It didn't taste all that great...but whatever. I don't think the colors had anything to do with the taste. Probably just a junky cake mix.

And check this out:

This was the kids lunch. 1/2 a bagel schmeared with cream cheese, an apple mouth, strawberry nose, blue berry eyes...and well the rest is pretty obvious. But aren't they cute? The other mom's and I were all saying how this will only be cute for another year or so and then it will be dumb. You know, to the kids. Kinda sad. Of course no one hardly ate these cute little bunnies. They were all too concerned about what was inside their eggs from the egg hunt earlier.
It's been a crazy day around here. I was ready for a nap by 1:30. First I woke up around 4:30. Our little dog, Nacho was barking ferociously at something. Nacho hardly ever barks so we knew something was up out there. And Maggie (the one who always barks) was not making a peep. Then in between the barks, we heard this other strange noise. So both Pete and I decided to get up, go downstairs and investigate. We're not exactly sure, but we're almost positive that Nacho is a Rat Terrier. When we went out to the kennel, both dogs happily came up to the gate. So we knew they weren't sick or anything. Pete said "What is it Nacho?" and he ran right over to this spot on the side of the house, stuck his nose up in the air and started barking away. What a smart dog! I guess there was some sort of critter that got itself stuck in between the slats of siding. I don't know, but that dang dog was obsessed. There was no turning him loose of that critter. In fact, he kept going all day and ended up chewing up the side of the house. Bad dog!
I went back and layed down after the dog inspection, but didn't really go back to sleep. The alarm was going to go off at 5 anyway. So I ended up just getting up after Pete left. I ran Jake to school at 8, came home and had coffee, only to turn around and go back to school at 10 to assist with the party. After school we ran to Costco and then to Safeway to get all the provisions for our party tomorrow up at the ranch. Hosting a party is really hard work! Not to mention expensive. But it will be fun. After coming home from the stores I started loading up the fridge with all the goodies and of course...I'm in a hurry because I've got to get the kids a snack...Megan is really, really whinny so I know she needs to go to bed....and what do I do?? Drop a brand new glass jar of yummy BBQ sauce out of the fridge and onto the tile floor of my kitchen. That's when Mommy Dearest first made her appearance. *sigh* It really wasn't a big deal, I was able to salvage most of the sauce. It just happened to happen at the wrong time and kinda sent me over the edge for a minute. No one was injured, just frantic screaming from me "GET OUT OF THE KITCHEN! GLASS ON THE FLOOR!!"
After that I put Megan to bed and proceeded to cut up 5 thousand strawberries for dessert tomorrow. I thought my hand might be permanently stained red. It's not.
The rest of the day was mostly uneventful. Aside from much whining and crying from 1 boy and 1 girl. Thankfully, Grandma called and invited Jake to come spend the night at her house. Hallelujah! I may have too eagerly accepted the invite and promptly dropped him off. :) By the time I got home it was time to stick the little one in bed.
Now it's quiet. I can breath. Pete is on his way home. Tomorrow is another big day, but should be lots of fun. We have probably 300 eggs for the kids Easter egg hunt tomorrow! The guys are going to shoot clay pigeons. (I might's kind of fun!)
Happy Easter everyone! Remember, it's not just about the Easter Bunny either. He died on the Cross for you (yes you) and for me.
