Birthday Party

25 Jan

Firstly, I had a great Love Story post created.  But hit draft instead of publish on Friday.  Oops.  So that will go up tomorrow.

Secondly, update on the Haiti adoptions with my cousin.  The new kids should be arriving sometime this week.  Praise the Lord.  They have also been interviewed by the newspaper and been on Fox News.  Yay for blessings on that front.  Their family will be joined together soon.

And now, recap for the busy weekend.  My daughter’s birthday party!

She had a BLAST.

Pleased with Herself

She absolutely loved her cake and cupcakes:

The Pirate Princess Party Cake

Pirate Princess Party Cupcakes

She clapped when everyone sang Happy Birthday to her before grabbing at the “plank” on the cake to eat.

She then ate her cupcake.  With a fork, of course.  Baby Girl does NOT like getting her hands dirty.

Proper Pirate Princess

She was also enthralled with the presents.


And did a great job of unwrapping them when it came time!

Unwrapping Presents

Girly girl that she is, she loved that her baby doll got a dress that matched her birthday dress (made by Nana)

Baby Doll

And she also got a great stroller to push the baby around in.  Or pull.  Since that’s how she rolls.

Big Walker

Her favorite part though?

The people.  By far.

Baby Kisses
Daddy and Daughter


Loving the Baby

How was your weekend?

      It was such a wonderful time. And she keeps surprising me with how much of a child she has become and not a baby anymore.

      Oh yes, we are big fans of pirates….and pink pirates? Even better.

      You can’t really see, but her leggings are black with silver sparkly skulls on it.

        OOOOOh! I HATE that cybersitter blocks the word “girl” in anything I post!!!!!! Why oh why is that considered a “bad” word!!!!!! That’s just a huge pet peeve for me.
        Okay… deep breath…

        But I guess you figured out what I was trying to say. I love the idea of the sparkly skulls too! Oh, and the monkey wrapping paper is hysterical!
