Cereal and Sesame Street

As everybody knows my children wake up way, way, way to early in the morning. I woke up this morning not hearing any children playing or fighting, so naturally I thought they were still sleeping and I would get a few extra moments in bed. To my surprise no they were in front of the T.V. Gracie who is now six is our little mother hen. This is what happened (as told to me by Lucas) "Mom we didn't want to wake you so sissy turned on the T.V. and got Jesson out of bed and put him in his walker so he wouldn't crawl away then she got me cereal and mom I ate it in the front room." As you can see in the picture Gracie took care of everything. She put Jesson in the walker and kept him quiet by giving him cereal, but Lucas of course also needed food so they all sat and watched Elmo while eating dry cereal in the front room. So no worries at my house Gracie has it all under control.

8th Wedding Anniversary

Today is our (Rory & Karen's) eighth wedding anniversary. I was so surprised to see him walk in the door tonight carrying a dozen red roses. I must say I am very lucky and blessed to have married such a great guy.

Yeah I'm Six!!!!!!!

Today is Gracie's birthday and we have had a lot of fun. She opened her gift from both sets of grandparents on Friday and had a party on Saturday. Lucas also gave his present to her on Saturday because he just couldn't hold in the excitement of giving her a gift. Our family friends the Browns also gave her, her gift on Saturday. As always we woke up early and sang happy birthday to her in bed and she opened her presents from mom and dad. The rest of the day was quiet until dinner where she ate her favorite meal, homemade Chicken Fettuccine Alfredo, steamed broccoli and salad. We then had cake and ice cream. Luckily Gracie had her brother next to her or else I don't think she could have blown out her candles. We love our "Maisey Daisy" and are so glad that she is our daughter.

Gracies' Spa Birthday Party

Birthday Party Time!!!!! I decided on a Spa birthday party for Gracie because she loves having her finger and toenails painted and had been begging me to paint them for a few weeks. Every girl got their own birthday bag with polish, flip flops, flower hair clip and ring pop inside. The girls all had their feet in tubs of water and soap, while being waited on by family and friends, who fed them lunch and while they ate and watched a movie we painted and decorated their toe nails. When their nails dried they each were able to decorate their own flip flops with jewels shaped like hearts, diamonds, flowers and butterflies. Gracie then opened her gifts and they all ate piggy cup cakes. Of course the festivities had to end but it was a lot of fun. Thanks to all my helpers, Aunt Jane, Cousins Tiffany and Crystal, family friends Tricia and Jessica. We all had a great time.
