Happy Birthday A!

I cannot believe that my baby is 5 today! Whoo, has it really been that long? We had her princess party on Sunday and it was a "ball!"

Here are some of the princess cupcakes that David made - too cute!

Here are some of the princesses that were able to attend. Note, the princes are in the playroom slaying the dragons.

I just love A's huge smile as one of her friends is being silly.

Here she is about to blow out her candles!
Oh, did I mention that the girls dressed up into princesses at the party.
Way cute!! Wish I had some boy dress up attire.

And here are silhouettes of my family. It has been a long time since I have done a craft but this was quite fun to do and with David's help we did it in a day - start to finish!

And please let me introduce, in his debut on my blog, the one, the only, Finn (my only nephew so far) - and what a joy to finally meet him!

Here is Dave and Finn.

Love this smile! Check out his cheeks :)

C had to meet him too! I think he is already plotting with Finn...look at that face.

Eyes wide open.

Now, for the record, I finally did get to hold my nephew even though I have no photographic evidence to prove it. He is a cutie.

I guess that is all for now. I still cannot believe she is 5!!!

Dance and Cupcakes!

Well, the girls are officially in dance classes and they love it!! Ballet and tap are very fun!

Here is B about to start class

And here she is (second to the left) in class with Miss Alex

And here is A about to leave for her class

And, Grandma Cummins (great grandma to the kids) had her 85th birthday party yesterday! It was so great to celebrate with everyone. David (I helped a little :) made an amazing cupcake tower in honor of grandma complete with elephants, monkeys, lions, clowns and poodles - check out the pictures!

Happy Holidays!

Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year! I have really been enjoying having my husband home more - it has been fabulous!

My Mom came up on Christmas Eve and we got to spend Christmas together which was really fun, my Dad was missed but we had a good time.

Enjoy these photos!
