It's the big PAR-TAY!

What fun we had at Lexie's 4th birthday party. I told her she could invite 4 friends and she invited her 4 besties! We had a great time! It was so low key I didn't even make a cake, just cupcakes. Here are a few of the pictures from the day! PS it's a mermaid theme in case you didn't catch it!

We got this cute shirt here (although it was a disaster by the end of the party!!)  Here she is waiting for her friends.  The party was at 2 and she asked every 20 minutes when it would be starting.

I made mermaid tails for all the girls.  I asked the first 2 guest if they wanted to wear them and they said did the 3rd guest.  (I was a little bumbed!)
And then the 4th guest arrived and she said awesome, I'll wear it and everyone put them on but 1 person.  I felt better!!!

Madilynn loving her spot with Jen.

Painting (bad idea, that's what messed Lexie's shirt up)

Necklace making

Then the old pinata!!  Can't have a party without one!

The loot!

How we both felt and looked by the end of the party!

We had a great time..........until next year!

birthday cake

After Lexie chose to have Spaghetti for dinner we had cake and sang to her. She loved it. She ate every last bite, yummy!


We had our first snow today, it left as quick as it came, but it was fun while it lasted. Lexie said "who bought me snow for my must have been Jesus!" Crack me up!!!

Happy Birthday!!!!!!!!!

My little lady turned 4 today. I cannot believe I held her in my arms at 2:28am 4 years ago. Unreal!!!! Lexie is such a happy, smart, artistic girl. She is in ballet, preschool and LOVES going to the gym with mommy! Everyone she meets is her friend and she really worries about others and thier feelings. She big for her age so I often think of her as my gentle giant. She is amazing with Madilynn and loves being a big sister. She helps out so much and enjoys feeling needed. What an amazing spirit, I love you Alexa and can't wait to see your future!

She got a new set of hexbugs, she loves these little guys.

Giants are invading!!

Madilynn LOVES Lexie's Dora castle, well really she only loves these doors. She spends tons of time opening them and looking in, cracks me up!!! She looks so huge!

Little lady

I love that Madilynn always has to be touching me. She does it in a way that makes you think she doesn't care, you know "I'm super busy with this toy right now....oh I'm touching you?? Didn't even notice." Love this girl!

Good times

We had the Nelson girls over for a great weekend! Alex brought snow home and they had alot of fun playing in it for hours. On Sunday we took them to Grandma's house and decided to walk to the school and let them play for a while. It was amazing weather and everyone had a good time!
