ice cream date!

 Ella has already filled her jar to the first line and she was very excited about it! Bob and Ella share a love for ice cream so I set up a special ice cream date for them at home last night. 
Ice cream at the house is nothing out of the ordinary for Bob and Ella so I wanted this time to be extra special. Lots of toppings and I dipped the cones in chocolate and then dipped them in sprinkles. Ella made sure to have a little bit of everything on her ice cream, she knows how to do it up right!
I hung some balloons from the ceiling and taped brown paper and a pom-pom ball to make it look like ice cream. I saw the idea on pinterest and just did it upside down since I didn't have helium balloons. Ella loved them. She couldn't stop talking about them while she ate her ice cream and she couldn't wait to hold them. 
Speaking of pinterest, I pinned this recipe for Kung Pao Chicken a while back and made it the other night. It was amazing. Like I am going to make it again this week kind of amazing. Plus when else am I gonna use the rice wine vinegar and sesame oil that I bought just for this dish.

Are you kidding me!? How DARLING is this?! Its a little after 5am & I'm up w/AK for a feeding..... I was 1/2 asleep, then I read this & I'm wide awake thinking how i want to do this little treat for Masyn! My idea of an ice cream date would be orange leaf or peach wave..... This is so much cooler than that :) I'm going to be on pinterest soon & this will probably be my 1st pin. Fab.

I also wanted to share a sweet picture that y'all inspired: http://www.facebook.com/#!/photo.php?fbid=241430809211131&set=a.241226565898222.68135.100000326419518&type=1&theater

(hope that works!)

My sister is currently leading a group to Rwanda that is serving an orphanage there and they were wanting exersaucers...after I saw the Go-Pod on here, I quickly told her and she ordered them to take with her! Thanks for the inspiration, ladies :)

I just had to stop back by LL tonight to let you know I had an ice cream party for Masyn. I couldn't wait! I didn't make the balloons......yet- but maybe next time. She love every minute of it and so did I. Thanks so much for sharing the sweet fun things you do because I never would have thought of this :) and the Tharp household LOVES ice cream!
