Look who's 2!

For Lila's big 2nd birthday we had all the family over for dinner. Lila was so excited to have her cousins come over. They played outside and Lila got so dirty she required a mid party bath. She was really into opening her presents this year and was super excited about all of her new Sophia toys she got. She LOVES Sophia the First and we knew it had to be the theme for her party. She was so cute when we sang happy birthday to her, she sang along. We sure love this sweet little terror and couldn't imagine life without her. Happy Birthday you little monster!

Oh my heaven she's 7!

For Eliana's 7th birthday (holy cow she's 7!) we rented out Gymnastics Unlimited. There were 2 coaches who ran everything (how great is that?). The kiddos had an hour and a half of gymnastics instruction, which included a bungee harness that they got to be strapped into, hoisted into the air, and then jump or be sling shot. They all had a blast! Of course the theme was penguin. So I made all the kids felt penguin masks. They turned out so cute and I love the picture of all her friends wearing them. I think it is safe to say that she LOVED her birthday party! 


Preschool Graduate

 It's hard to believe that Alexis is done with preschool and ready to start Kindergarten in the fall. We are so proud of her and all she has learned over the last two years. She has had a wonderful teacher and made lots of friends. So long preschool its been fun, kindergarten here I come!





Woodland Park Zoo

Eliana has a deep love for penguins. So when I heard that you could feed penguins at the Woodland Park Zoo I knew we had to go. Over spring break we went with our neighbor and her little boy who is Lila's age. We didn't care if we saw any other animals as long as we got to feed the penguins. I think my girls could have stayed at the penguin exhibit all day. Alexis was totally grossed out by the fact she has to touch a fish, but she toughed up and did it. Ellie was in pure heaven and so excited to feed a penguin. She was a little bummed out that she didn't get to pet one.

Alexis is 5!

Catch up time. Alexis turned 5 in February. She knew long before that she wanted a Hello Kitty party. As you can see by the pictures it was a pretty big party. She had a blast. I can't believe she is 5! Happy Birthday Alexis!

Christmas Dresses

It is no secret that I LOVE LOVE LOVE buying fancy dresses for my girls. I think they love it almost as much as I do. Theses dresses have hung in their closets for over a month and every Sunday Alexis would beg to wear hers. They were super excited to finally get to wear them.
