Birthday Party - Part 2

Maren had her friend party on Saturday at her gymnastics place. They did a great job of entertaining the kids and helping them use the equipment. Before her party she went to a Pirate Party for a friend on the next street, this was the closest we had to pirate wear.

We decorated the party room while the kids played.

The kids are getting ready to do the floor trampolines and the foam pit.

Cupcakes and Sweets!

Maren loves gymnastics so she was thrilled to have her party there and everyone had a blast. Preston is planning on having his party there in March.

We came back home after the party and made homemade pizzas and let all the kids play some more.

Birthday Party - Part 1

Our family tradition is to open birthday gifts after the birthday girl has her favorite dinner and homemade cake. Maren picked Parmesan Pasta for dinner and she wanted a cake with sprinkles.

Both Maren and Preston enjoyed the cake, frosting and sprinkles so even though my cake fell (your lucky you can't see the back) and my frosting was sticky it was still a huge hit!

Maren received a dollhouse from us, a stamp set from Grandpa and many Barbies from Nana & Mappy.

Look for more birthday fun on Saturday!

Happy Birthday Maren!

3 is apparently the age at which you learn to always make goofy faces at the camera.

Maren opened her dollhouse this morning and then will have a few more family presents tonight when we have cake. Her friends party is on Saturday at Classic Gymnastics and she is really looking forward to it.

For Gram

This beautiful figure was given to me by Carissa to commemorate the passing of my Grandpa who was a Vet. The figure is a woman (my Grandma) holding a wrapped flag that would have been presented after internment.

I got this shot late on Saturday night in manual with no flash (not going to look up the specifics) but it just fits. Miss you Grandpa and Gram we love you, stay strong.

I'm having some technical difficulties with my Microsoft Office, I have a trial version of 2007. Well since I never reboot my laptop I didn't realize it had expired so I need to go to Best Buy and purchase it so I can send emails again. So if you are expecting an email from me and don't have it, that is why.
