Look who's three!! Our Little Princess!


I say this every year, with every kid, but I can't believe Lillian is already 3!  She is really adorable.  She has the cutest mannerisms and she uses them a lot because her speech is a little behind.  She tilts her head, smiles, hugs, kisses, shrugs her shoulders, bats her eyes...She jibber jabbers a lot and she's learning more new words daily.  One thing is very clear, she loves princess, especially Ariel, Rapunzel and Elsa.  We kept her birthday low key and had a princess tea party with her cute friend Sydney.  They were born a few days apart and love a lot of the same things.  See the unplanned matching Elsa dresses as evidence.  We love this girl and are so happy she is in our family!! 




 Everett joined the party!  A handsome prince!

 We let both girls blow out candles over and over again.  They had a blast!



 Is that not the cutest face ever!!
 Princess lego's from Sydney, what a hit!!

 Kisses from Everett!
 Return kisses from Lillian.  These two are very lovey and so cute!

 Blowing out her candles!

So proud of herself.  Lillian has a self assurance and poise that I just love.  I'm excited to see what she does with her life.  We love you Lillian!!

Double Digits!!

Berk is now 10!!  He's such an honest, fun, thoughtful kid!  He still loves sports, friends, meat, games, and now Under Armour.. He wanted all of his friends to party with him, so when I saw a discount on the video game truck I snatched it up.  He/ they had a blast!!

 Power up station where the boys could grab some food after all of that game time!
 One boy said, "This is the best party ever!  They have Cheeseballs!"  I had to laugh, that was Berk's only request for his party!  I guess they're easy to please at age 10, ha ha!
 This little guy stayed cute during the whole party…I guess the cheese balls were more popular, Ha!
 Brimming with excitment!

 Inside the video game truck.  There were 5 flat screens, an Xbox 1, Wii u, Playstation, you name it, they had it.  The stadium seating, led lights and laser lights really jazzed it up.



 Berk's Mario cake!  Yay for M&M art!


The end of a great birthday!  Happy 10th Birthday Berkeley, We Love You!!
