I took some portraits of the kiddos last week.  I think they turned out pretty well, and I am trying to decide if I can afford to get some of these made into canvases.

More of M's Birthday

For M's birthday, we went and picked Chris up from work for lunch at Burger King.  We picked BK because it was the only restaurant we could find near Chris's office that has an indoor playground.  M loved the crown, playground, chicken nuggets, fries, and chocolate milk.  I think it was a lot of fun for her just watching the other kids running around.  As we were leaving, M was wearing her sunglasses and crown like in the picture above, and a lady told us we were bringing Hollywood.  It was pretty perfect.

We tried to keep the presents to a minimum this year, while we still can, so we got M one big present and one small present.  Her big present was this trike:
Incidentally, she loves it.  I was able to get a really good deal on it at Christmastime, but only if I bought the pink one.  Since we now have two girls, I figured it would be worth it.  M's small present was an accessory to the dollhouse she got for Christmas:
 Now her dollhouse has a mom, dad, baby, and sister, just like our family!  I thought that was too great to pass up.  She has been able to use her trike a couple of times already with the nice weather we had last week.  

We blessed A last Sunday and had a little family party for M at the same time since it was only three days after her birthday.  I made an owl cake for her and some chocolate cupcakes.

Don't mind the watermarks. . . I featured the cake and cupcakes on my craft blog this last week.  Here are some more pictures from the party:

 We had so much fun celebrating M's birthday with family and friends!
