Day 152

Well if you follow this blog you would know that Miss Madi ended up in the hospital on her birthday...low blood sugar plus puking = ER visit.
So we  had  her Birthday Re-Do

 Typical Madi!!

 "Make your own Lalaloopsy" Magnets!!

 Party Favors..Lalaloopsy color books and crayons

Adding up carbs for every snack was "fun". 

I wrote it down before the party just in case I forgot since I would have a bunch of 4-5 year olds here!
I put all measurements in cupcake cups to make it easy at the party.. Just grab one and they are prefilled with the right measurements so I know what to account for for Madi.
 Chocolate covered Strawberries= 15 carbs for 2 strawberries

 Strawberry Crystal Light= 0 carbs!

Chocolate dipped Pretzels= 20 carbs for 4 Pretzels
Cheese Balls (Madi insisted!)= 5 carbs for 1/4 cup of cheese balls

Chex Mix= 10 carbs for 1/4 cup of mix

Sugar Cookie and frosting=25 carbs per cookie
And Lastly, since Madi wont eat cake, I always make her cookies..SO each child decorated 2 cookies with frosting and sprinkles


  1. So cute!

    Great idea with the cupcake liners!!

  2. Love this post and seeing all the cute treats you had for her party! Very creative and glad she could enjoy all the goodies with everyone. Did you have to do more than one shot? That was always the hard thing for my daughter at parties when she was still on shots. Lunch would be served and then cake much later and I always wanted to avoid a second shot. We just had my daughter's party today...her bday was Dec. 29th!
