Sydney is FIVE

I can't believe my baby is FIVE!!!!  We had a fun few days celebrating this special girl!  Her birthday fell on a Thursday this year, so she was able to celebrate with cinnamon rolls for breakfast, a cake pop at school, ice cream with Poppy, and cookies with her dance class!  And, then there was that ice cream cake with the family on Friday, and her birthday cake at her party on Saturday! Whoooo, veggies the rest of the year!  ;)  

➹ It was also picture day on her birthday! Look at these cuties! ➹

➹ So, the students in her class get jobs and one of those jobs is in charge of passing out lunch boxes at lunch.  Jake, the cute boy on the right, was in charge of passing them out this particular week, and he put Sydney's lunch box next to his every.single.day! ➹

➹ She LOVED this cute sleeping bag from Grandma Irma and Poppa Peter! ➹

➹ Her party and her gifts were Shimmer and Shine TASTIC! ➹

➹ Uncle Rhino got both girls mermaid outfits and they couldn't wait to try them out...even if it was in the bathtub! ➹

➹ And, I couldn't resist a little side-by-side action of me and my mini-me on our 5th birthdays! ➹

Here's to a great year, Sydney!!!

Miscellaneous August

I need to blog Sydney's birthday and her birthday party, but before I do that, here are some random things that happened in August!

➹ Poppy had been promising the girls some fish for quite awhile, so one Friday, he surprised them with them! ➹

➹ We celebrated Reese's second birthday with a fun party at Peter Piper Pizza! ➹

➹ We celebrated Brooklyn's 6th birthday at Skateland!  I was SO proud of both of these girls.  It is not easy learning to skate and these girls were so tough.  At one point, I was helping Zach because he didn't have a little roller to help him, and so Sydney went on by herself. When I asked her if she wanted help, she said, "I'm not a baby, and I'm going to PROVE it!" She didn't take any help the whole time! We celebrated with a trip to Sweetie's! ➹

➹ Liv lost a tooth while eating an ice cream cone at Basha's! It was the EASIEST tooth removal to date!  She has another loose one now and is milking it for all she can! ➹

➹ The girls said goodbye {for now} to one of their favorite dance teacher's.  She had her baby boy on Labor Day! ➹

➹ Dress up is our FAVORITE!➹

➹ PHEW, we made it!  Thanks for sticking with us! ➹

Fun Fridays with Mommy

Now that Sydney goes to school Monday - Thursday, we have Fridays just for us.  Knowing how fast these days and years go, I am trying to take advantage of these days of just the two of us and do something special together.  So far, we have gone to the IDEA Museum, the Lego Discovery Center with Ty, a shopping and pedicure date with Mommy and Daddy, and JumpStreet trampoline park with Ty and Jake.  We've also signed up for a gymnastics class every Friday morning and she absolutely LOVES it!
