Halloween 2015

Flower Girls Dresses

The girls from our wedding wore these dresses. . .

8 years later. . . 
MY girls can wear them!! 
SO much joy seeing them wear these dresses! 

Mommy Bonding

All Mommies want something they can bond with their kids over. . . .

Mine??? Artichokes!

It's probably necessary to mention, Bobby hates artichokes! We try to only eat them when he is working!

Pirate Day

Did you know September 19 is National "talk Like a Pirate Day"??

If you dress like a pirate, Krispie Kreme will give you a dozen FREE donuts!

Between the 2 of our families, we received 6 dozen, FREE!!!
Naturally, we let the kids have one and had 3 dozen left!
So, we took them to the fire station!
Daddy had been working for 3 days, we needed some Daddy time!

Princess Day

Look at this Beauty! 

I've realized since Heidi-Rae was born, I haven't spent much one on one time with Capri. Bobby really wanted to send us on a Princess Day to Disneyland. I was hesitant because of the price! A friend came across discount tickets and that was all we needed! We booked her an appointment to get her hair done at the Bippity Boppity Boutique and were all set! I didn't tell her where we were going, just that we would be gone all day and it was just she and I!

There are SO many pictures but I just couldn't narrow it down! She was incredibly surprised when we arrived. We got there a little early, so we went to get a treat at Starbucks. While talking over breakfast, Capri was worried Jeremy would feel bad that he couldn't be there. She called him to say Hi and wanted to get him al little gift! What a sweetie! I asked what she wanted to do all day. Her response was, "Go on the carousel and meet the Fairy Godmother."

When she figured out where we were going
On the tram
Getting Hair Done

Make up and Nails
She loves to be the center of attention! 

Before and after!
The after is so cute and the day was fun
But I prefer the before on an every day basis! 
Next, We headed to see the Princesses. . . .

Belle asked her favorite book. . . . 

Cinderella gave her dancing lessons. . . . 

Snow White taught her a song....

Aurora taught her to talk with the animals.
She love Sleeping Beauty's hair.
It was time for some rides! 
The carousel brought SO much excitement!

Toon Town

We waited in SUCH a long line to meet Mickey!
And play peek-a-boo.

She loved Minnie's house! 
We got lunch and since we had been up since 5:30am, I had Capri lay down to take a nap. I got her all settled in the stroller, then I saw The Fairy Godmother!!! I had to let her get up! 
That smile says it all!

She settled into a 2 hour slumber!
I got some snacks, found a shady spot and read a book!
We snuggled for quite while when she woke up! 
The rest of the day we played, laughed, joked.   IT. WAS. SO. MUCH. FUN

She just HAD to take a picture on the fire truck for Daddy!

Take off to 5, 3, 1.....

We love combined birthday parties! And by "We," I mean Bobby and I. A few people have told us "The kids will hate them in the future." But, in the spirit of teaching our children to serve others, I think it's perfectly fine to celebrate their birthdays together, especially because their birthdays are all with in 6 weeks of each other. That's enough to make a Mama go crazy planning 3 separate parties! On the day of their actual birthday, we let them choose dinner and have a dessert of some sort to celebrate them individually.
This year was "Planes: Fire and Rescue" theme.  I wanted to do "The Very Hungry Caterpillar." But the kids begged me to do Planes. How could I say No???

My dad's wife, Kylie, and I attempted to back cakes.... it definitely ended in a Pinterest fail!

Kylie had made this type of cake before so we didn't have a plan B. It was the day before the party and i was a little stressed by the evening! Kylie called a friend that's a baker and had a cake made... She also made a dairy free version for Capri... AND decorated them! I was SO thankful!
