Something fun and exciting happened for my daughter this weekend, she was able to do a front pull over on the uneven bars in gymnastics. For her, this is a huge deal due to poor muscle tone and motor aprexa. It’s a goal she has been working on for quite some time, so when she finally hit this goal, we just had to make sure we made a big deal out of it, and celebrate! What’s a better way to celebrate than with a small party right? Now being a busy mom I didn’t have time to throw a grand affair but I wanted to make sure to take the time to show my daughter how proud of her I was.

The perfect easy-to-make treat so you can celebrate life’s little moments.
