Maya's Birthday Party

It's been a birthday party kind of month. Today we celebrated Maya's 3rd birthday. Her and Payten are only 3 days apart. We spent the afternoon at our favorite place, Max & Oli's Playhouse. The girls of course had a blast and it was great to see everyone. Happy Birthday Maya!

Adorable Princess banner!

Yummy cupcakes!

Day of Celebrations!

Friday we celebrated Payten's birthday and our anniversary at Disney! Of course this was more for the girls but it was totally worth it for all the smiles. Their smiles are priceless. Payten LOVES meeting the characters so of course that is when we get the best smiles from her. Camryn on the other hand LOVES the shows. We'll be back soon since we bought a Florida Hopper Pass. :-)

Heading into the park!

Giving Tigger lots of love!

She's 3!!!

It's been a super busy weekend around here. So I am finally getting around to posting pictures of Payten's birthday. She had a great day celebrating it at school with her friends, then we had lunch and a mini nap, then had the Ellison clan over for some dinner and cake. Payten had a great 3rd birthday!

Busy busy!

It's been a busy few weeks of baking around here! First Valentine's Day, then Payten's Birthday Party, and now Payten's Birthday party at school. But of course Payten is loving it! She gets to eat cake batter and sprinkles, does it get any better then that? :-)

Happy 5th Wedding Anniversary!

Never in a million years would I have thought I'd met my future husband the way we met. But its turned out to be my very own fairy tale. You are my lover and best friend and couldn't ask for a better guy to spend the rest of my life. These past five years have been filled with lots of good and even bad but have made us grow closer. Thank you for always being the "one"I can go to. Happy 5th Anniversary baby! I love you with all my heart!

That every long lost dream
Led me to where you are
Others who broke my heart
They were like northern stars
Pointing me on my way
Into your loving arms
This much I know is true
That God blessed the broken road
That led me straight to you

Tammy's Funky Flower Giveaway

As you can see in about every picture of my girls they are wearing a flower in their hair, its a MUST have accessory for my girls! My best friend Tammy is owner and creator of Tammy's Funky Flowers. Her work is amazing! She has a flower for each Gymboree line (my favorite store), and she also offers customized flowers. Her flowers are QUALITY! And I not just saying that because she is my friend, its really true!

Tammy also offers holiday flowers! This is just one of the adorable ones she offered for Halloween this past year!

Tammy customized this beautiful pink, purple, and yellow flower for Payten's Ladybug shirt! It turned out awesome! It totally made her birthday outfit!

This one for Camryn's 1st Birthday might be one of my favorites, not sure if its because it was made special for Camryn's 1st birthday but the colors are so vibrant, just love it!

Birthday Party Video

We didn't get any video except for singing Happy Birthday :-( But at least we got something! :-) Now maybe I can get the Christmas videos up!

Payten's 3rd Birthday Party

And finally the pictures! On Saturday we celebrated Payten's 3rd Birthday with our family and friends at Max & Oli's Playhouse. This place is super neat for kids. Some kids are not a fan of bounce houses so this place is ideal. They have bounce houses, slides, rides, arcade, and even a ball pit with a slide! Thank you everyone that made Payten's day a special one! WARNING: Major picture overload! :-)
