He's Eating!!

Yep, that's right my little Kye is getting so big and has started eating the beloved "cereals." (Well he actually started about a MONTH ago, but I just forgot to post it then ...)
I would have to say the first time he had it, he didn't do THAT bad ... I've had worse reactions! He was tired of it pretty fast, but all-in-all he does better and better with it.
He likes the "oatmeal" version better, but because of bowel issues we need to stick more with the "rice" version which is not his FAV. (Hopefully it becomes more of a fav!!!)
So here's the proof of the first attempts ...

This is the point at which he was DONE!!! Can you tell by the facial expression ... :)

Zachary likes to help and SAMPLE some of the product. He sometimes is a little jealous of the attention his brother gets and him helping out seems to mend the jealousy he feels. I love my little Zachary and Kye! They are opposites in most ways, but are the sweetest little boys EVER!!

We love our little Kaiser Baby and are so glad that he was sent to be apart of OUR family!!
Let the eating adventures begin!!!

Now I definently don't do parties every year for my kids for 2 reasons ... #1- My kids don't need more STUFF and #2-I would go INSANE! My kids will get a couple of friends parties over the years and one is done at age 4. Why age four you ask? Because they are little so you can do ANYTHING and they love it and its right before they get a TON of friends at school who you then feel like need to be invited!!
So onto the CELEBRATION ...
Emma LOVES they color PINK, who wouldn't when they are FOUR???
So, when I saw my friend threw a Pinkalicious party for her little girl I knew that would be a HIT with my little Girl. It was a BLAST planning it and Emma loved going to the store with me to help me get all the PINK STUFF!!!
Here are the invitations we delivered to each of our party guests ...

I had a GLOURIOUS time making these PINKALICIOUS cupcakes!!

I think they turned out looking pretty close to being an exact replica from the book ... They were EASY!!!
We decorated for Emma's Birthday and just added some more pink stuff the day of the Birthday Party ...

Theses are the wonderful party favors we gave to our guests as they left to thank them for coming.

First we colored some Pink coloring pages and then I read them the Pinkalicious story once everyone got there.

Then we broke out the beads and let all the kids pick and choose what beads they wanted in their special bracelets. It was a little CRAZY with 4-5 yr. olds, but oh SO WORTH it!!
Here is a photo of all the party guests showing off their marvelous Bracelets.
(L-R) Leiah, Hailey, Marissa, Madison, Savannah, Emma, Michaela, Gavin, and Zachary
Then we enjoyed a delicious PINK lunch.
It consisted of Cream Cheese and Strawberry Jam Sammies, Strawberried, Grapes, Yougurt, Pink and White Wafer Cookies, and Pink Lemonade ... YUMM-O!!
Then onto the cake we went singing Happy Birthday and Eating our Pinkalicious Cupcakes.
Don't worry, no one turned PINK!!!Emma opened her gifts and got some really cute things!!
It's been wonderful to have more coloring books, some swim stuff, a darling cake bank, and a stylin' dress!
Thanks so much for the CUTE, CUTE things!!!
Onto the games ...
We played "Pin the Cherry on the Cupcake"
"Cake, Cake, Birthday"
duck, duck, goose
Throw the balls,
Dance Party,
& Ring Aroung the Rosie.
It was a fun time with lots of WILD moments, but all-in-all it was a BLAST!

Thank You EVERYONE for coming!
A big THANKS to Mom, Charisse, Megs, and Alan for helping out during the party and before!
It would've been a lot for me to handle, so thanks for being around to HELP!!
Emma I love you and Hope you had a MARVELOUS Birthday!
I am so blessed to have you as my daughter!
You make me wanna be better everyday and you teach me so much about LOVING life!
Can't wait to watch you grow, although it makes me sad!!
You are truely an angel in mylife!

***Celebrating Emma***

I can't believe my little Princess is growing so fast! She turned four last Wednesday and BOY did we celebrate!!! It's been such a wonderful adventure to be a Mom to such a sweet little girl. She brings a SMILE to my face everyday and I am so proud of her and all the wonderful things she is learning. I love her so much and cannot believe that she is GROWING so fast! Thanks for being my BUDDY, and thanks for teaching me how to love unconditionally and without grudge!!
I love you, my little Emma-nem!!!!!

This year Emma got a big girl bike, a helmet, Princess and the Frog Barbie, a dress to play outside in, Monsters Vs. Aliens, and a dress-up that came with everything to cover her from HEAD to TOE!! It was such a BLAST to watch her open presents and be EXSTATIC every time she opened a present!!!

These are the GLAMOUR shoes, as she calls them. Aren't they the cutest things EVER!!!For her Birthday Breakfast she chose to have Blueberry Muffins, Eggs, Sausage and Toast.
Her Daddy bought her PINK milk since she is his little Pink Princess!
She enjoyed every SIP of her pink milk!
Grandma Fergy and Aunt Megan came and gave Emma a gift from them. It was this DARLING princess dress and she will look DARLING wearing it to church.
Thanks Grandma and Grandpa Fergy, I LOVE the PRINCESS dress!!!
Later that day we went bowling as a family. It was something we did last year on Emma's Birthday. She has not stop talking about it for a year, so we decided it would be fun to do again!!Here's all our feet, READY to BOWL!
Emma waiting to see the outcome of her turn ....
It's so much fun to bowl with little kids!
Their expressions and reactions to the situation are so much fun!
I am not sure I could go bowling without them because they make it so interesting!!!

Yes, Zachary licked and sucked on just about everything, but he was so CONCENTRATED that is was CUTE!


Yes, she is quite the Princess! She wore this bowling because it was her birthday and it made her happy!
Who cares what you wear, as long as you can POSE CUTE!!

This is her excited Pose/Dance she did after she knocked ALL the pins down!!
As you can see I am quite the BOWLER ... NOT, but I love going!
Last year Emma beat both Dad and I, but this year she came in 2nd.
She still had just as much FUN!!!

Kye lenjoyed the Birthday "EATSAP"!!
(That is how Zach says Pizza ... SO CUTE!!)

Here is Emma Little Mermaid Cake.
I really didn't think I was going to make her a cake for her birthday .. I was just going to do cupcakes.
BUT, I made the mistake of asking her what she wanted, so then I felt like I had to do it.
I am NOT a cake maker, so for me I think it turned out at least looking like what it was supposed to!

Happy Birthday to YOU!!!!

Kye enjoyed Cruisin' around on Emma's bike a bit!!

We had such a Fabulous birthday day! It was so fun to celebrate with her and have her truely enjoy it all! Thanks everyone for the phone calls, visits, and well wishes in her behalf!!
Emma is truely a blessing in our home and I am so glad that she is part of our Family!
Happy Birthday!!!
