Cali turns 5!

Our girls are growing up too fast ... Cali wanted a "zebra princess party," and that's what she got! All day she sported new princess pajamas, enjoyed making pancakes with mommy, playing at gymnastics camp, eating pizza, decorating wish pillows and snuggling to a movie (Snow White!) Cali is excited to be five and everyday she asks how big she is!

Bria turns 7!

cupcakes at school, balloons and pink polka dot decor, hair and makeup styling, cupcake decorating, cute presents, new Barbie movie and pink popcorn!! What a great 7th birthday!

The "seecret clnr" and bacon

I found this sweet love note one morning from the "seecret clnr." Said cleaners lovingly cooperated to clean their room.
"Dear Emily and David,, we hope that you like our really clean house. Love, The Secret Cleaner."

And, on Sunday morning, we had a bacon party. The kids alone ate almost 2 lbs [and that's with rationing!]. Here's their bacon party song!

Liam's 3rd birthday!

Liam enjoyed a very happy, pirate-themed third birthday! Cupcakes, presents, McDonald's, and friends! 

His favorite things right now:
  • Playing with anything that goes ... cars, trucks, planes, trains, boats
  • McNuggets & sweet n' sour sauce
  • Squirting the hose 
  • Using spray bottles to "clean"
  • Sleeping in the girls' beds
  • Singing "Twinkle Twinkle"

First day of school!

Cali officially started Pre-K at Ms Michelle's. She says she is most excited to "learn how to make food and play upstairs." 
*Disclaimer: both the girls selected their own first-day outfits.

Bria's first day of 1st Grade. Her teacher at Degan Elementary is Mrs. Little. She is excited to "learn how to read and play with friends."

Disneyworld 2013

We enjoyed a fabulous Disneyworld family vacation! 
Some highlights include: arriving safely to and from Texas (super duper long car ride!), seeing Brady fresh off the mission and spending time with our family, the Animal Kingdom safari, It's A Small World, The Little Mermaid ride, the Disney Jr show, the nightly fireworks, swimming, and playing at the parks!

breakfast at our lovely condo! And we enjoyed their movie room, swimming pools and in-condo laundry
