Birthdays and Other News

Tuesday was Abbie's birthday party and fun was had by all! My sweetie was 4 years old on Wednesday! It does seem that time is going too fast. It doesn't seem that long ago she was not using real words and I was worried about her. She and I went to have pedicures on her birthday - I thought it would be a nice birthday tradition. She didn't seem too impressed. Jim told me that a tradition takes a couple of years.

I need to mention that the big girl finally gave up her paci last week. Jim had to go out of town for work and she had to give it to him or go back to bed. She gave it to him! She knew she couldn't have it back. So she gave it up. Minimal screaming and yelling.


Thursday was the last of day school for Kenny and we celebrated by swimming at a friend's pool. So the long days of summer begin...

Happy Birthday, Abber-Dabber! I'm with Abbie -- let's just go to McDonald's playland instead of to get a pedi for a birthday tradition! Why don't you take Ashley for a pedi on her birthday, and I'll take Abbie to. . . the gym? :-) She can bounce on the big exercise balls!

Abbie looks very cute at her birthday party. How about you and me go get a pedicure on Abbie's birthday and leave all the kids with Sarah at the gym?! We will celebrate Abbie by having Hello Kitty pictures painted on our toes....

Aww Happy Birthday Abbie! Dylan turns 3 June 4th, they do grow up fast. What a cute cake, Cameron would have a fit for that one. What is it with Hello Kitty anyways? I think the pedicure thing is a great idea, and I bet next year she will enjoy it alot more. Cameron LOVES to get her nails painted when I go get mine done. I think that is a great tradition.

Totally agree with Anna on the Pedicurs. I took Cassidy for her last birthday and she loved it! Lots of milestone- store them in your heart my friend!
