{A Little Unicorn Magic and a Relaxing Mother's Day}


With six grandchildren birthday themes are always changing. Oh we have done every theme you can imagine. But, I've not seen a little girl yet that doesn't love unicorns. 


This sweet and sassy little thing will turn 8 on May 16 and we celebrated her with a Unicorn Birthday party.


She requested for Nana to make her a unicorn cake. So a three tier rainbow color cake was made and though not perfect it sure made my Kyleigh happy. 


We added Unicorn cupcakes to the party and everyone had a choice of dessert. 


A friend made the unicorn cookies and each child got to take one home. Aren't they adorable?


The kids had so much fun. Pulled pork sandwiches, chips, drinks, and desserts was the menu. The kids had a ball playing in the pool, jumping on the trampoline, and playing corn hole. 





They enjoyed roasting marshmallows for S'mores.



We sure had a fun time celebrating my favorite 8 year old. She truly has the "sweetest heart". She loves everyone! 


Recently she spent the night with me so the next morning I asked her what she wanted for breakfast and she wanted a scrambled egg with syrup. YEP, she likes syrup on her eggs. So, when I poured the syrup to the side of the egg all of a sudden she says, "Nana, do you see the heart"? My Kyleigh always looks for the sweetness in life and I love looking at life through her eyes. 


I had a wonderful Mother's day. Our family gathered for lunch at my oldest daughter's home and we enjoyed a relaxing day after church. All three of my daughter's are wonderful mothers. Marty and I could not ask for anything more than to see our children raise their children under the Word of God and instill godly values into their lives. What better gift could I ever desire? 



Speaking of gifts....I racked up! YEP...love having three daughter's that knows what their mama likes! Beach time is here and that is my Happy Place. Our family beach trip is coming up in July but shhhhhh.....mama and daddy are sneaking off to the beach in a few weeks. 



And a gift card was included that I am so happy about! I gave a gift card to the Salon and Spa to my oldest daughter recently so now my girls purchased me one as well and I can be pampered too! 



And on the home front I've harvested the last of our potatoes...YUMMY!


And, I have truly been enjoying my beautiful lily's. 


I hope that you all have a wonderful week and here is what I am wishing for you....


Hugs and blessings, Cindy

    1. Thanks Benita. She loves unicorns so this theme was perfect for her. Next party up is an ice cream theme for my youngest granddaughter who will be turning one. Can't believe she will be one already. YEP, girl, get your beach bag packed and head to the beach. You deserve it after that reno!

  6. Your sweet 8 year old granddaughter is just the cutest little thing. I love it that she saw the heart on the plate with the scrambled eggs and syrup. I had to go back and look for it. ;)

    Your Mother's Day sounds lovely. You have such beautiful daughters and it isn't beauty that is just on the outside...it comes from within. They are just like their beautiful and sweet mama.

  7. So glad that you were spoiled on Mother's Day.

    The unicorn cake is awesome! Back in the '80s, I used to read the Sweet Valley Twins book series. The popular girls formed a club called the "Unicorn Club" because they were unique. So every time I see unicorns, which is en vogue these days, I think of these books.

    1. That's funny Kris about the syrup. I know people that like ketchup on their eggs. I just want regular eggs. LOL! But then I do like to dip my sausage in syrup occasionally.

    1. Thanks Bonnie. Girl, I am in need of some beach time. Even if only for a few days. Hoping it works out that we can go. Then family beach trip in July and we spend 7 days together and have so much fun.

  19. Wow! I am amazed at your unicorn cake decorations! That was so beautiful, I would not have wanted to eat it, but I am sure it was delicious too, and I can imagine how your sweet grand girl loved it! What a super wonderful Nana you are! And what lovely gifts for Mother's Day! You are truly blessed to have such wonderful, thoughtful daughters and family. Syrup on eggs? hmm, well, when we have waffles, eggs and sausage, I also spill a bit of syrup over everything...so I guess I like that too, but mostly I like it on the sausage!! I do hope you and hubby will have a wonderful beach getaway. Sounds delightful. God bless you and have a wonderful time.

  22. You are so right about little girls and unicorns. Our 4 year old Granddaughter LOVES them. Her 4th birthday party in Feb. was all things unicorn. I'm sure impressed with your cake making ability. Your family is just beautiful and you are extra blessed to have them nearby. I just hate having our daughter 8 hours away. Hugs!

    1. Thanks Jenna. My daughter takes the credit for all the goodies and treats for the party. Nana was in charge of the cake. LOL! But that was enough because I'm so slow these days that it took me almost all day to do the cake. Ha! I'm sure not fast as I used to be! And there is nothing more important than seeing my children and grandchildren follow after Christ. I surely give Him all the praise.
