Happy Birthday Lil Sis

Lil Sis just hit the big "3" this weekend. She requested a Pony Pinkie Pie cake. A little to ambitious for me so we settled on cupcakes with a Pony Pinky Pie decoration. We just had a family party, and invited her bestie Pita and her family. I really can't handle big birthday parties every year. Both girls birthdays land right on the two biggest holidays, Thanksgiving and Christmas.

She enjoyed her party. I learned an important lesson. I'm going to remove the toys from the boxes before I wrap them. I mean it took the whole family cutting and sawing our way through all that plastic packaging about 10 minutes. Toy makers if you hear me, please do something about this!!!

It's funny how siblings get so jealous when its not their birthday. After Lil Sis received a gift from Oma and Opa, Big Sis exclaimed "wow, thats just what we wanted." It has been hard for Big Sis to come to terms with the fact that these new toys belong only to Lil Sis.

A big thank you to Grandma J. We love the CooCoo the Rocking Clown Game. It is a lot harder than it looks, even for mom and dad!

I'm not normally a stooge for companies, but Amazon has started an AWESOME revamp of how packaging is done.

They have really cool movies available that show how easy the new packaging is to open.

A major part of is that modern packaging is optimized to be displayed in a store, whereas most people are buying things online, so they can optimize for the unwrapping.
