first grade and the BIG 7

I can't help but get emotional writing up this post! My baby is in first grade and turning 7 on Saturday!!


I can only say that it's pure joy and torture watching them grow up! Slow down......please slow down and don't grow up so fast!!


I'll be very busy this week preparing for his party. I'm making these little treats for him to bring to school on Friday to hand out to his classmates.



I started last night and was fussing over the colours (gotta keep them neutral) etc when I reminded myself.....they are a bunch of 7 year old who will appreciate the 'pretty paper' for about 10 seconds before they rip into them to get to the good stuff!!!



After Marko's inspections (the one that's farthest back....you can see it's a little worn after Marko's poking and squeezing!! lol) he gave me the thumbs up on the design. I have to make 25 (one for Mia) by Friday!!



That's it for me.......have a great day!!
Pin It!

What a good mom you are! I hear you...I just wish there's a pause button somewhere so my girls wouldn't grow up too fast. It'll be a very sad day when my youngest leaves for kindergarten. I'm thankful school only lasts half day here in Croatia.

Yes, slow down! Cute treats! Funny that you used TROLLI sweets! The company is seated in the town I live!

Hugs,
