TGIF "Thank Goodness I have Friends"

TGIF! I woke up on friday morning with my day all planned and very full. However, plans change. It was my friend Jenna's birthday and we had a playgroup planned at my house. Well, Jenna'a kids were sick along with EVERYONE else's that normally would come...EXCEPT my dear friend Heidi. So what do you do when you have a good friend, a tank full of gas, 3 kids under the age of 4 and a 30% off coupon to everything at Gap or Old Navy? YOU GO SHOPPING! So we loaded up the kids and had a BLAST!! Now being impulsive is great, but forgetting your stroller...not good! We did however work that coupon to its full extent. Thank you Heidi and Max for a great day of fun.  Next time there will be pictures!

After the fun shopping it was time to pick up Ellie, bake a cake and drive down to Chuck E Cheese for a birthday party.

Ellie is an AMAZING ski baller. Her top score was 25,000.

Ellie with her four buddies. What a FUN 6th birthday party.

After Ellie had her fun and I had some fun with the other Moms, who I just adore, then I got to have fun with my friend Julie. We spent Friday night mixing, frosting and talking. Julie, her sweet hubby Marshall, and I decorated Savannah's 4th birthday cake. We had a tinkerbell theme and there was a lot of practicing.

Here is Julie attempting to teach me the tricks of doing a pretty flower

Here is the AMAZING cake that Julie designed...she truly is an artist!!

So I DID IT!  With help from a good friend, Savannah will get her dream cake. 
Thanks Julie.

Saturday came and I was shown yet again how blessed we are with sweet friends.  Thank you Tara for blessing us with a day in Chicago and a day off from the worries of life.  So yes, THANK GOODNESS I HAVE FRIENDS!!!
