“Rainy Day” Family Night

29 Mar

First we decorated umbrellas for our drinks

Posing under our rain clouds

Our rainy day treat

We attempted playing “heads up, 7up”

We threw on our rain boots for a walk and had them close their eyes for their surprise…

Yay for umbrellas!

(and for Old Navy clearance! I’ve been holding on to these for a rainy day. ┬áha, ha!)

We had some fun then went inside. The girls got their jammies on, when all of a sudden, the rain really started coming down. “Get your boots back on!”

What are you all doing out there to have a fun time with your families?

Would  love to hear about it!


First Pigtails

28 Mar

Im not sure why…

As a mom of girls, you wait for the day their hair is finally long enough to do this!

Cuz, its not like they want you to do it.

Although she did like the end product.

Its not just me right?!


Minnie Mouse Birthday Party

23 Mar

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!

The Best Party Ever

Bringing in the New Year of 2011 with our good friends. We all had a giant slumber party. I see this as our official, annual celebration together.

Me and my man

With my 2 best friends at the same time! Couldn’t get better

Getting our wannabe groove on

Don’t you want to be here?!

All I want for Christmas is my….

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!

Halloween 2010

3 Nov

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?

Halloween Family Night

26 Oct

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.
