Lots to share from this past week.
We celebrated Abby's 9th birthday with a Dr. Suess themed party! It was a blast!!
** Daddy loves to draw the characters for the birthday parties!
* Watching a short version of Horton Hears a Who...
* Strawberries and Marshmallows on a stick to represent the Cat's hat
* deviled eggs died green for green eggs and ham
* the favorite game of the party was marshmallow mumble. In the Lorax the teddy bears love marshmallows, so I thought it would be fun to have each girl put a giant marshmallow in their mouth and say a phrase from "There's a Wocket in my Pocket" and the other girls would guess what they were saying. It was pretty funny!
* We also played a balancing game inspired from the Cat in the Hat where the Cat balances things as a game and they crash down to make a big mess
* The cakes were much cuter in my mind. They are Red Velvet Nothing Bundt Cakes. bit I imagined less icing so you could see the red. I also made the thing 1 & 2 signs too big and the cotton candy wasn't so fluffy...but it was a fun idea! :)
* I loved the birthday timeline. I hope to do this every year with my kids on their birthday! Soooo fun seeing them as they grow over the years.
We also celebrated Abby's birthday with a family birthday dinner at Babe's. I certainly couldn't pass up the opportunity to snap a couple cousins pictures. Love all of the colors of skin in these photos!!!
* my loves attention not a bit shy Abby loved standing on a chair and acting like a chicken for her birthday!! Isn't she soooo cute!!!
* God blessed us this week with an amazing double rainbow!! You could see the whole arc but I didn't have a wide angle lens on the camera. It was amazing!!!
love these two goofballs
* We are loving our baseball season!! Max has a wonderful coach who really cares about the kids and invests in them. He keeps them loving the game but also learning skills!!
* I captured Max's first hit of the season. I have a new camera and I haven't found the continuous focus yet, so it's a blur. But, I love the sun flare and sooo excited to have captured the moment!
* Max got the game ball!!! :)
* "Whatchootalkinbout" - oh, come one, you know you thought it too!! :)
