Little Miss R: One Year Cake Smash

This little sweetheart recently turned ONE! I got to go to her first birthday party and capture some special memories for her sweet parents.

We had such a fun cake smash and then she even shared some of her cake with her puppy- it was his birthday too! Enjoy a few of my favorites from her gallery!

 

 

 

My Little BMW: 3 Years Old

I cannot believe that my little BMW is 3 years old today! She is such a joy in our lives and makes me laugh out loud daily.  She is definitely our firecracker- she is the bravest, most spunky girl I know, except if it involves ants, bugs, or anything that creeps and crawls.  🙂  She loves to sing all of our special songs, dance, gymnastics classes, and adores her big brother and little sister.  She brings laughter wherever she goes, with her “threenager” vocabulary and thoughts.  She can count to 20, knows all of her ABC’s and loves to learn new things.  I love you little girl! I can’t wait to see how you grow and change while you are three!

May 2015- 2 years old

Happy 3rd Birthday, Sweet Girl! We LOVE You!

 

 

 

So Many of My Smiles Begin With You: 5 Years Old

Where oh where did my four year old go? This year just flew by! I cannot believe my firstborn is 5! Every year around their birthday, I blog about my kids’ past year, including the monthly pictures I take as they grow and also pictures with all the special people in their lives.

What did “4” bring? This year you went to preschool, you can count over 100, (which you do daily in the car as we drive), you are so close to being able to read whole words, and you know all your letters and their sounds. You keep asking me when you are allowed to have gum, and you are officially able to beat me at Mario Kart on the Wii.  You have an uncanny love for music, and you have the ability to make me crack up with the funny things you say, as well as your extended vocabulary.  I love the sweet way that you protect your sisters from harm and the utter giddiness you had when we told you that B4 was a brother! I am so excited for you this year as you get to have your very own brother.

I love you sweet boy and I am so proud of you as you are growing up- never stop being your sweet self!     – Mommy

To Infinity and Beyond: A Toy Story Birthday Party

Toy Story Photo Booth

 

I had such a blast planning this 3rd Birthday Party for my favorite little Space Ranger! Our Toy Story theme was so whimsical and fun- my favorite part was all of the little details, especially the personalized subway art I made for him.

Our lunch menu consisted of Slinky’s Hot Dogs (which I am super bummed I never got a good picture of these- essentially they were hotdogs with pizza dough baked around them to look like a slinky), Green Alien Juice, Wheezy’s Penguin Pals, Buzz Fruit Rockets, Woody’s Roundup Lassos (aka pretzels), and Alien Cupcakes.

We had some fun games set up around the house including “The Claw”, “Throw the Snakes in my Boots”, a felt version of Mr. and Mrs. Potato Head that my sis-in-law made for me, that the kids could change their faces all around,  and a fun homemade Etch-A-Sketch Photo Booth with lots of Toy Story character props.  Thanks to my Dad for taking most of these pictures for me!

Other than that, we decorated with all the fabulous Toy Story characters which we already owned and  hung green Army Men rappelling from the ceiling.  I don’t think he will ever forget this Birthday 🙂 Happy Birthday little boy! We love you!
