beach with Em and Jack

Emily and Jackson have made a few trips out to the beach for a late night hair appointment followed by a trip to the beach in the AM. I like this tradition.  Jackson is a good little beach boy. We love it when they come to visit. 
Goldie loved having Jack Jack chase her around.
She's REALLY fast
love that little belly.

 I can't get enough of this Hazelnut.
I told G to grab a toy she'd like t bring to the beach and she picked an ear of corn. Perfect. It ended up being a real hit. Hazey got her hands on it a few times when G wasn't looking. 
Dream on Haze. She wants that corn so bad.
Some of the best times at the beach are had at the showers after the sandy business.

Gogurt morning

My kids are fussy eaters.. but they will always go for a frozen gogurt.
Sweet little muffin. 
She is now climbing out of her highchair EVERY time she is in it... so she gets strapped in these

That's a good face Goldie. Love the crossed eyes.

blog binge

I am going to start catching up. (what ever that means, right). I have some cute pics and tidbits to go along with them and I dont want to forget... like this one.

 this girl has got the cutest face. oh how we love G.


beachin on Oct 9th

this is the trip to the beach we took on Saturday, Goldie's actual birthday. It was a beautiful day. The weather was perfect, the babies were great and the wind was just right for Ariel to soar.

The End


Tinkerbell's birthday

So IT happened. Goldie's Tinkerbell birthday has come and gone. Our guests were looking adorable, thanks to Mother Munns and her wizardry on the Bernina. (I had plans to make ALL the skirts but she was a dream and did all but one for me) Goldie picked out what friend would wear what color, and of course she would be green, like Tinkerbell.  Our little guests came and we danced fairy dances, we ate fairy foods, we made fairy necklaces and we even dug for fairy gems in a treasure chest. It was a success and the little fairy guests were all so well behaved.

Fairy Dancing. (i'll post a movie some day of some great dancing footage) Goldie knew just what to do... the other little fairies we a little confused on what exactly fairy dancing is. Fairy dancing in our house is mix of crazy leg moves and cool tricks combined with light leaps and smooth movements of all sorts. pretty much anything goes when we're fairy dancing.
 then we ate our little fairy lunch of peanut butter and chocolate crustless sandwiches, goldie's favorite
until things got a little silly with the fairy wands
So we moved on to Necklace Making
these little ladies were pretty darn good at this
daddy stopped by for a little bit to see his little Tinkerbell

 Next up we had gem digging
we finished the day with presents, cotton candy (thanks to auntie kara) and cake (which i opted to make for $15 as opposed to 60bucks for THE tinkerbell cake at the target bakery... i am very proud of this cake)
