Cece turned five today! One whole hand! Just months away from starting kindergarten and one more year closer to being able to vote. It’s no exaggeration that they grow up so fast. Five is going to be a fantastic year from her, I can feel it! We celebrated the occasion by having a family party at… Continue reading Happy 5th Birthday, Cece!
The wedding festivities have officially been kicked off! This weekend I traveled (solo!) to Illinois to help throw a classy Mexican beach themed shower for my sister and her fiance. Thank you all so much to everyone who came and helped celebrate such a silly, special, (and ridiculously good-looking) couple. I know deep in my… Continue reading Showering Robbyn & Jay!
Today, Rosie turned two! Even though it was a rainy day, we got out to Good Times Park in the morning, squeezed in lunch, a nap, and a shopping trip, and spent lots of time breaking in her new art desk (which she so kindly shared with Cece.) We baked a chocolate cake and made… Continue reading Happy 2nd Birthday, Rosie!
Last weekend, we celebrated the birthdays of my nieces Samantha and Michaela. My sister-in-law put together a super sweet Inside Out themed party which I thoroughly enjoyed… possibly even more than my own kids, and they enjoyed it a lot. ^^^ Nine kids just quietly enjoying their snacks.^^^ This is a testament to just how… Continue reading Partying Inside Out Style!
Valentine’s Day turned out being fairly busy so, we don’t have a lot of pics. BUT. We did have some pretty good times. At least initially. In the morning, we had pink pancakes (yes, they were leftovers so they were still festive, just a little dry.) And I made sure the girls woke… Continue reading Valentine’s Day 2015
Last weekend, our sweet and smiley nephew Dominic turned one! We celebrated by living out all of our gymnastics dreams at North Crest Kids Activity Center. It’s really a toss up as to whether the kids or the adults had more fun. I mean, trampolines and foam pits! Don’t be surprised if my 30th birthday… Continue reading Dom turns one!
Over the weekend, I put on my brave face, packed up our van, guzzled some Dunkin’ and embarked on a brief, crazy, and FUN trip to see my family in Chicago. Nothing gets done without this stuff. ^^^ After Cece finished school on Friday, I drove myself and the girls to Wisconsin Dells. Even though… Continue reading A road trip, a wedding, and so much sister love!
Last week was a whirlwind of such good things and I’ll be so mad at myself if I don’t make an attempt to record some of it! One week ago on Sunday was Cece’s birthday party. Hard to forget that! After returning home from the party, unpacking, and refueling, my siblings and I… Continue reading Life is good. And that’s the way it should be.
Over the weekend we celebrated Cece’s fourth birthday in a Frozen fashion with our immediate families in St. Cloud. Cece received MANY thoughtful and wonderful gifts including a Frozen big girl bike from her aunts. Cece played it really cool when she opened it. Is she excited? I can’t tell. … Continue reading A Frozen Fourth Birthday
Over the weekend, we celebrated Rosie’s birthday at the Maple Grove Community Center. During the first part of the party the little ones played in the Maple Maze while the adults scurried around ensuring that everyone was having fun and no one was getting trampled (too badly). Although the kids and babies outnumbered the adults,… Continue reading Party for One!
