A Fun Night

Last night we had a fun family night after my meeting. John wanted to watch the very first Sesame Street episode. So we popped up some popcorn, got in our jammies and cuddled in. Did you know that Bill Cosby is in the very first episode. I believe they are on their 48th season this year. Amazing. Needless to say, the first episode is a little slow especially compared to the episodes now. We watched about 20/30 minutes of it and the kids were finished. Next, it was makeup time. Sophia decided I needed to get ready for a ball. John even got into it and added the lipstick that you see on me. After my face was completely painted (I mean War Paint looking!), we had our family ball where we danced. 
It was a fun night and a great way to start the week.

Sophia is 3!!

Sophia is 3!! Can you believe it?? I can't. My sweet baby girl is 3 years old! She turned 3 last Friday and it is like she has all of a sudden grown up. She seems to have gotten taller and thinner...just over night! 
Well, we had a Tea Party for little Miss on Saturday. She had told me she wanted flowers and "GIRLS ONLY" at her party. So we invited 4 sweet girls over with their mommas and sent the boys off to play at the gym. 
We did open gifts from us and Nana LeAnn and Pops on Sophia's actual birthday. Here are a few pictures of this event...

The next day was tea party. It was a blast. The little girls were as good as gold...actually it was the quietest birthday party I had ever been a part of! We had decorated and were all set, just waiting for the guests to arrive.

Here were some of the goodies...

Make up and Nail Table 

Dress up for everyone

This was my favorite idea...tea bag sugar cookies that the girls could dip into their strawberry milk. 

The guests arrived and it was make up time! 

Next we decorated cookies...

And then it was time for tea! 

We waited for the boys to get back before we blew out the candles. Sophia loved every minute of it! 

I have to thank my Mother and my Husband for all the help the gave to get this party ready. I think the party landed on the busiest week of my life, and we still pulled it off. I couldn't have done it without these two!

My sweet little miss has blossomed so much this year. A year ago, she would barely talk to people. I really think people didn't think she talked because she only talked at home. In the past year she has gotten potty trained and learned to become more independent. She has become this girly girl who LOVES jewelry, make up, dressing up, dolls and so on. She also doesn't sleep, loves to stay up late and sleep in during the morning hours. She loves sleeping on the couch and watching Princess Movies. She still has a love of books and has a pile with her at all times. 

Sophia - 
Happy birthday baby girl! We love you so much. We are excited to see what God has in store for you and your future. We are so blessed that God has given us this wonderful, precious gift. We love you from head to toe! 
-Love Mom and Dad
