Well, I said I would stay on top of this blog and since I am nearing the one year mark in updates I figured I should probably throw something up here.
Well, school ended last year and our summer was filled with lots of stuff: My youngest sister was married, we spent time in So. Cal., we took the kids camping again, Kody lived on an airplane for the month of August I think (he was working like crazy & that month is all a blur to me), and then--as soon as I was about to catch my breath--school started again. Bleh. I'll get to that one later. In other, more notable news, the twins turned 5. CRAZY. For the first time ever they asked for different parties and since I figured I might kind of owe them at least a couple of those throughout their childhood, the big 5th birthday seemed like a good way to knock one (or two) of those out. Delaney asked for a Fairy Princess party, complete with fairy makeovers. It was a blast, and I think I may have had the most fun transforming my dining room and living room into a fairy beauty parlor complete with manicures, up-do's and fairy dusting. Delaney had about 12 little girls over, all decked out in their favorite dress-up, to get prettied up and eat frilly foods--it was so cute!
The birthday girl, at the entryway to her salon (thank goodness for hand-me-down items from my sister Katelyn's wedding--all the fabrics & accents were happily recycled as fairy decor).
My sweet girl.
