Party People in the house....

sunday was party day in our house...woooooooo
and what better way to celebrate nooshies up coming 1st birthday than with a  sausage sizzle and ice-cream party!

saturday was filled with cake decorating, sorting lolly bags, and ice-cream making! we were so blessed to have my big sister come and help with lots of the pre-party prep. one job that she did an amazing job on was the chocolate ice-cream! 
heres how you can make some yummy yummy chocy ice-cream for yourself using your ice-cream maker!

3/4 cup cocoa powder, sifted
1/2 cup sugar
1/3 cup packed dark brown sugar
pinch of salt
1    cup whole milk
2    cups thickened cream
1/2 tablespoon vanilla extract
step 1...whisk together the cocoa, both sugars and salt, add milk, using a hand mixer on low, beat to combine until cocoa, sugars and salt are dissolved. stir in the thickened cream and vanilla. cover and refrigerate for 2 hours.
step 2...once chilled turn on your ice-cream maker and pour the mixture it turn into yummy ice-cream! 
step 3...ENJOY!

while this yummy treat was being made i was also in the kitchen creating a hot-air balloon cake! now i must admit me and the icing had a few disagreements mainly due to it being too hot. but we managed to kiss and make up in the end, and i think i managed to pull off a pretty good birthday cake.....

next on the list was the decorations....finally i got to put up my party bunting, and create my pom pom hot-air balloons!

party day started bright and early so husbandito could inflate the balloons! and i was really lucky and nooshie had a nice long morning nap and by 11am the party was starting!

the sun may not have made quite the appearance that we had hoped for, but it was warm enough for the kids to play with their bubbles outside and for everyone to enjoy their snags and ice-cream.

the birthday girl was a bit over whelmed with the amount of people and babies in her home, and i have had to deal with sore arms the past few days, from having to lug her around with me for the entire party....but i think when it came to present time she pepped up and enjoyed herself. 

after weeks of preparations, hours of party planning, sewing, baking, and ice-cream making it was all over in the blink of an eye. but worth it!!!!
