Rapunzle, Rapunzle let down your hair

The birthday girl!! Saturday was Zoes 5th birthday party!! It really is amazing how time flies!! This year was a tangled themed birthday party!! Zach and I were lucky enough to have the house to ourselves for a couple of days. Zoe and Hannah went to my in-laws and Zach and I were able to prepare for the big party!! We suprised the girls with a new play set!!

Zoe got some really great and fun gifts, she was so happy to see all the decorations and gifts waiting for her and she arrived with grandma and grandpa

Here is the cake that Zach made!! What a fantastic job!! All Zoe wanted was a tower, so Zach wipped this beauty up!!

This was her hardest descision.....cupcake or cake...

Here are my little jello boats....

And here is Miss Colbi ready for her sisters 5th birthday party..

There are so many things I have been thinking about blogging: " What to do about my 4 1/2 year old" , "How I dream in dance" which I do...I really really do, weddings, last days of preschool and FIRST days of kindergarden, dreams and goals for my family, and life....OH LiFE!! But for now these pictures will have to do....

And soon I will get back and blog about how wonderful my grandma is and how lucky my kids are too have multiple great grandparents! How blessed I am that my third little girl sleeps better than the last two, which I think at this point is well deserved after the other two! And how life has obsticles but there always seems to be a light, (sometimes dim) at the end of the tunnel!

But since I have missed all these oppurtunites to blog all my thoughts I decided to just add some pictures for know of my beautiful family!

Well one of my good friends has all these amazing ideas, so I decided to try one out!! Im hosting a meet the baby Easter party on Easter Sunday for all the family who havent met the new baby!! Its alot Easter and a little baby...but one of the things I accomplished was this great banner! I am so proud, it turned out pretty cute and was super easy!! They have this amazingly free machine at craft warehouse that cuts out letters for you, you just pre-buy the paper. These are my letters

And here is my banner- I did glue the letters to the cut out rectangles which I might not do again, but it was a learning process and I cant wait to make one for every event!! Another thing I have up my sleeve are some cupcake paper banners!! Im really excited to try this one out and once I get it done I will post pictures!! Cutiest thing ever, just pick some great paper cupcake liners at what 1.99 a pack and string on a thin string!! I am so excited and cant wait to share!! Happy Crafting

Of course all of my pictures are out of order, but, here is the last month in a quick show of pictures! This weekend we had the pleasure of my nephews company- along with the inlaws!! Zach raced in the Badger Mountain Challenge. A 15K trek up and over and down the Badger Mountain!! He did amazing and we had the family here cheering him on. For some reason they started the challengers off in waves but didnt reset the clock, so I dont believe there was an accurate time for anyone!! Luckily Zach had his watch on!

Here we are waiting in the freeeezzzzing weather for the race to start! Last week Zoe had rainbow day at school
And of course St. Patricks day, we made rainbow cupcakes and had green milk

And last but never least, thanks to my bestie for throwing an amazing baby gathering!! Didnt call it a shower because the point wasnt for gifts but was to celebrate the new baby coming!! We had everyone bring an appetizer and we played a couple games and visited!! It was wonderful

What a busy and exciting month!! The countdown is on!! My induction date is set for the 13th of April...but I am dialated to a 2......on that note this might be the last post before we have another beautiful baby girl on our hands!

When it pores:)

So here I am visiting the great town of wenatchee- great friends good family and two children! A two year old and a 6 week old. Never have I traveled this far ( 2 1/2 hours) by myself with them and the trip there- fantastic!! Well on the way home I was stopped by a road crew blowing up rocks- 20 minute delay- okay, so we wait the twenty minutes. We pass the flagger and of course it has been 2 hours since I fed the newborn so its time to eat she screams- we make it to the rest stop and POW its closed, so we pull over! Then in the middle of feeding my two year old yells POTTY MOMMY, POTTY MOMMY- great- I say. So I give her the option to go outside- NO WAY so I say " lets put on your sisters diaper and just this one time you can go in a diaper" NO WAY aaaaaaaaaaaa- what do I do...well, there is a fruit stand up the road! So we hop in the car, get to the fruit stand and I plead my case- YES they say, you can use the toilet!!!
okay, I think we are good to go...but of course we get behind three truckers!!!
So long story short our 2 1/2 hour trip ends up taking us almost four and we make it home to a loving husband and father and a batch of peanut butter cookies from the neighbor!
I guess there is always a rainbow at the end of a rainstorm- HUH?
