C turns 5!

Claire Turns 4…

For Claire’s 4th birthday, she requested a Sleeping Beauty birthday party. I was happy to oblige. But I wanted something sweet and not cheesy.. Of course I waited until the last minute, and basically the party started falling apart on me late Saturday night… (party was set for Sunday.) Lesson Learned… Don’t let your husband […]

Happy 5th Birthday, Addison.

How can it be?  How are you FIVE already? I knew this day would be hard for me, last year when you turned 4. And I promised myself I would treasure every day for the next year. You’re officially a big girl now.  You dress yourself. You can get in and out of the car […]
