Heres our sweet 2 year old princess.
We decided on a princess party and what a blast it was.

Heres her loot. She really cleaned up this time.

Look at her isn't she beautiful. I love my crazy family.
The best wat to wear a tiara. Its the new fad and she would know.
Some of her great gifts. She still loves them to this day.

Everyone seems to love this gift. It is so much fun and plays some great songs.

Look my son has a girlfriend.
My family is so great. My dad is dreaming of being a princess.
The cake which is a bunch of cupcakes. I love that its a castle.

We had a blast but next year it will just be a few of her friends for an hour of fun and games. Maybe possibly going to host a kindermusik party.

Washington DC Trip

This trip was a year ago last month at mothers day. My hubby has been on the bone marrow registry for years. He started getting calls in at the end of the year in 2009. He was a potential match for a little girl about our daughters age who has lekumia. He went through physical after physical, blood test after blood test. Found out he was the best match for this little gal in England. We got a free trip to DC. Did a wee bit of site seeing it was a world wind of going from a few places along the national mall. some of the places I don't remember.
I think this is the WWII memorial. In any case another place of which has a peaceful feeling.

The quote above Lincoln at the Lincoln memorial. It was so humble to be there.

Paul and I outside the gate at the White House.

We had such an amazing time and for such amazing thing. On the day of his procedure I got to sleep in and then went and met him at Georgetown University Hospital I got on the shuttle from our hotel. A lady with her things including a cooler got on as well. I didn't assume anything. Found out through talking to her she was a courier picking up bone marrow and transferring it to the recipent. Turns out she was the one carrying to paul's recipent.

Anyway it was a world wind trip only got to see a little bit of the many wonderful things the city has to offer. I want to go back one day and really dig into the culture history available to see there.

Bubba's Blessing Day

I can't believe it beens almost a year. I am such a slacker with blogging. Robbie is getting so big and moving all over the place. We blessed him on September 26, 2010. Paul's mom, dad and two sisters drove from Missouri to be here and spent a week hanging out with us. Grammie Cope made the outfit.

The family of four.
