Bounce Party

I'm pretty sure we celebrated Natalie's birthday for about two weeks. We took her out to eat, then she got gifts and cards in the mail for at least a week. Then we had her class party. We had about 10 kids show up, only 1 little boy, but he didn't care. She enjoyed it, but got embarrassed when they sang to her. We all actually had fun jumping and sliding, Byron and I were little sore probably and the girls slept like logs that night.
Olivia, Hailey, Kaylee and Natalie in the air tube thing. I LOVE Hailey's face in this one!

It took Harper a while to warm up but then there was no stopping her.
Olivia & Natalie jumping off "Daredevil Island"

This little cutie ate her cake with her hands. 

 Jackson Page with all the ladies. I think Natalie kinda likes him but he's a bulldog fan :)

As good as it gets. We were all WIPED OUT!


Birthday Dinner

We were all prepared to take Natalie to a Mexican restaurant Wednesday night but ribs won out. Which was fine because they have awesome pork tacos and Harper chowed down on a cheese and sausage plate.

The birthday girl and her candy bouquet from Grammie & Big Big. It was dropped off at school and boy was she proud.
Little sis also reaped the benefits of sister's birthday. She was sorting them for Natalie so she got the ones she liked of course! Evidently Baby Ruth's hurt her teeth (I could not make this up) and Nat got all those (like it was her decision). Turns out those are some of Natalie's favorites.

And the official birthday platter. Her eyes bugged out when she saw it. "Do I have to eat all this?" She put a pretty good dent in them and ate the rest for dinner the next night. And she doesn't leave much for Byron pick off either.
Birthday was a success. Her big party is at the end of the month. We made a bazillion cupcakes to take to school today and she's about 1/4 way through her 1100 piece lego set Nana got her.

Oh and Harper got a dozen cupcakes for her class too. Can't leave the little stinker out now can we?


My Mini is 6!

My baby is 6 today. Man the time sure has flown by. You are such a sweet, tender-hearted, compassionate girl. If I had to guess what you'd be when you grew up, I'd guess teacher, nurse or maybe something to do with animals. Although I'm not sure how you would deal with the yucky stuff...lol  You're one of the best big sister around too, Harper is very lucky, even if she doesn't know (or show) it yet.

Once she gets home from school I'll get her to do the the yearly 20 questions. I can probably guess most the answers but you never know. I just knew we'd be going to eat Mexican tonight to celebrate and she opted for Pig and Pint. I guess she's in the mood for some ribs or maybe she doesn't whip cream on her knows!


Happy New Year!

Sorry a little late on the Happy New Year post. We didn't do much though. The girls were still in KY, we did go out to a nice dinner but went to bed by 10:30. 

And we haven't been doing much since the girls got back except adjusting back into school routines. Mother Nature had decided we should be blessed with some actual winter days and my I'll be honest my girls Don't.Do.Cold.  Harper's minimum is probably 50, sunny and no wind and even that's pushing it. 

We did Christmas put away and are working on planning a 6th birthday party at the bounce house. Otherwise we are just chilling inside, doing whatever we can to entertain these two goobers.

This little art set Santa brought has been a life saver. Funny story: It comes with those oil/pastel things and we'd told Natalie be careful with them, they stain, and don't let Harper have them. It never fails anytime we get the set out Harper never touches them but runs her fingers over them just taunting Natalie. She can push that girls buttons like no other :)
Baths. Even if they don't need them, are good for at least an hour as long as you pump a little extra hot water in there every 20 mins.
And Tuesday was our last kinda warm day. Byron's car broke down and while we waited the girls got hungry (of course). We drove down to Sonic and had a car picnic. Nothing like some tots, dogs and limeades to make the time go by faster.
