Today is the Hubby's 36th birthday. He's been my best friend for almost 20 years.  He makes me want to throw things some days but I still love him.  That's what marriage is. Work. Hard work. But he shines through when I least expect it.

So happy birthday to the love of my life. I wish we were on a beach in paradise but I'm at work and you are headed to bed. The story of our lives. Ships passing in the night.

Have a great day. The girls and I love you forever and always!

4th Birthday Party

We went BACK and FORTH on the Princess' 4th birthday party. I really wanted it to be at the beach but that didn't work out so we had it at our local YMCA. Such a cheap party and all we have to do is show up with cupcakes and plates and drinks. The kids got to swim for an hour, then eat some pizza and cupcakes, then we were done!  One of the easiest parties I've ever done.

Thanks to my sweet sis in law for taking over camera duty at some point.

BFFs (and dance class pals)


And yes, the cousins are wearing matching shirts. I am not sure they have stopped wearing their Tomahawk Tromp shirts that they gladly earned!

I love these boys!

This face I could eat alive! (Both above and below!)

Totally this sweet girl's personality!

We had a great time. Another birthday party down!  She's already planning her 5th one.  Which I'm hoping will be at the beach. (Notice a trend???)
