My little sister, Marissa is having a baby! So I jumped at the chance to throw her a shower.
Unfortunately, I didn’t get photos of everyone who pulled this day off. I was overwhelmed by the hard work so many were willing to do for the love of my sister. These are some of the amazing people that worked their butts off to make my crazy ideas happen! Susie Q, Leata, our mom, and Lorraine.
My BFF who also did a TON behind the scenes with me. How hot is she?!
Some of the details…
Everything on the menu was tiny. Baby burgers, baked mac & cheese in baby food jars, veggie cups, guacamole bruschetta
And some tiny, sweet treats too. Mini lemon cupcakes, Snickerdoodles, baby strawberry shortcake, and vanilla bean ice cream cups
I love you sis and can’t wait to be an Auntie to your sweet little baby!
Vienna turned 2!
She is in love with Minnie, so there was really no other option for her party theme. Here are the invites
Each child received minnie or mickey ears to wear.
The kids colored Minnie pictures.
We served waffles, sausage, tater tots and berry cups. And my mom still had that Mickey waffle iron after all these years! I found a tasty way to make egg/dairy free waffles, that everyone would want to eat. And made way too many, my freezer is packed!
The bean bag toss
Vienna did more of a drop in than a toss.
Here are some other minnie details…
Thanks for the board inspiration H! wish you were there!
It was such a fun and simple party
I love you Vienna! Can’t believe you’re 2!
She made it! We had been working on that 2nd top tooth for weeks, all to be able to sing that silly song. And she did it just in the nick of time. December 23rd, 2 twists and voila!
Every Halloween we go to the Smith’s and trick or treat with all or kiddos. Its always a blast.
Minnie Mouse. She can say it too. I need to record that. She was very proud of those ears and wore them the whole time.
Our little kitty. Which if you know her, this is the perfect costume for her. Everyday she says,”Lets play kitties!” My mom did an amazing job making her furry costume.
The librarian. All her own idea. Just had to come up with what a librarian would look like. I think she’s pretty cute! Did you dress up or do you leave that for the kids?
Our dinner was mummy dogs,with spider web dip, sweet potato jack o lanterns, and apple fangs.
While dinner was cooking Kiara and Melania were in their room getting dressed for the event. I assumed the would come out in some costumes. Melania wore a dress and said she was a princess.
Kiara wore her bathrobe and said she was a Vetrinarian. Any excuse to wear her robe! She loves that thing.
Vienna was happy eating her mummy dog
We made foam jack o lanterns
I don’t know any other kid that can make this good of a grumpy face. I think I need to a whole post dedicated to that…
Spider web cupcakes for dessert.
This makes me happy….
I LOVE Fall! I love the colors, the weather, the fashion, and the pumpkins.
I got to wear my birthday boots. (A story will follow another time)
Melania was walking down the pumpkin aisle pretending to be a bride.
I missed having my biggest girl at Melania’s field trip, so we had to go again!
My little pumpkin
Picking out our favorites
And I did ask my children, “Please, please give your best smile. I really want a good family picture for my birthday!” And they listened! Happy birthday to me!
We went to the Big Fresno Fair and got in free for bringing in canned food.
We always love seeing the stinky animals
how cute is he?
Some of the owners let us in their pens to pet the pigs. Kiara was so excited.
Vienna liked to look, but no touching. Melania wouldn’t even think of it
we had to play on the kids jungle gym
short sweet and free! Gotta love it!
Cause this is the last time I’ll be showing it off for a while!
Today is the day! My C-section is at 9:30 this morning. Please pray for me if you think of it! I asked Brian to do a post for me later so more to come to come soon! Happy St. Patrick’s Day!
We had been trying to think of something fun to do today as it was our last full day together before the baby. I wanted to do something outdoors and since I’m 9 months pregnant, am feeling a little limited to say the least. We have been needing to go to our storage unit, which is Oakhurst, so we decided to make it into a fun day trip.
Then we went to Sierra Meadows golf course, where my Uncle is the General Manager. We borrowed golf carts and drove around the whole course and then hit some balls at the driving range. The weather was beautiful, everyone was in a great mood, and the girls had a blast. Not to mention it was FREE!
After golfing, we headed to our favorite diner up there, called Pete’s Place. Such a great day! What did you do this weekend?
On Monday we headed to Shaver to play in the snow. We didn’t make it very far due to weather conditions, so we pulled over on the side of the road to play.
Melania was content eating the snow. Since we brought our sled, we just
pulled the girls around on it so they would feel like they got a ride.
It was a short trip due to it snowing. It was beautiful and freezing!
We ended the day with warm clothes and Me N Eds pizza, then left the girls
with grandma and grandpa for our date night. Perfect Day!
