Within 24 hours I went from 131 to 200 thanks to the help from my fellow autism moms and family and friends. You would have thought it was New Years Eve when the ticker went to 200. The kids were running around screaming. It was great a moment I will always remember and treasure.
So Sunday, I made good on my word and we had a party. It was not just any party mind you… it was a “Hoppy 200 Likes Froggy Bloggy Party!” Jay’s idea. I was pushing for the Dog and Blog rhyme theme (would have been much easier to make a cake in the shape of a paw) but nope the boy wanted FROGS.
And so the boy got FROGS!
I even invited over my neighbors and my cousin and well… we had ourselves a party! The kids and I dug up as many frogs as we could. We found green balloons and a table cloth. I made signs on the computer and Gracie hung them up. We made Lime Jello into the shape of lily pads and stuck frogs on top.It looked good for something we threw together in under 12 hours!
I researched the internet to figure out how to make a Frog shaped cake. It came out pretty cute too. Jay made a really cute speech thanking everyone for coming. I love this picture and could not help but add the captions. 🙂 Afterwards we went outside and played a few Frog related games and then the kids just played Nerf Gun Battle and had fun running around and working off their sugar high. The grown ups sat in the air conditioning (we are much smarter after all) and just visited. It was such a nice and relaxing time.
As I put Jay to bed he asked what we were going to do when I hit 500! Here we go again!
