Gracie is Six!

Gracie is Six!

On Saturday, Gracie turned SIX!  Holy moly!  Where has the time gone?! (Please notice that it is still dark outside in the picture below…) Gracie wanted a Moana birthday party, which I assumed would be easy to throw together because Moana seems to be everywhere right now, right? WRONG. There is absolutely NO Moana birthday party stuff in stores right now. There’s a little bit online, but I waited until two days before her party to start getting anything ready, which left me scrambling together a birthday party theme on…

Gracie’s World

I don’t know what the deal is, but Gracie Girl has been looking so much older lately.  My three chins and I don’t know how we feel about that. I think it’s because her sixth birthday is coming up at the end of March. SIX! I can’t even take it. As much as I am trying to avoid the entire event happening, Gracie has 101 ideas about how to celebrate her birthday this year. All of them involve enormous parties at our house where I am the primary mode of…

A Pampered Princess Party

A Pampered Princess Party

Bean’s First Birthday: The Saga

Bean’s First Birthday: The Saga

On June 1, my Bean Bean will turn one year old.  Holy crap where has all the time gone?  Seriously.  I can’t believe it.  But at the same time, I can’t believe it has only been a year.  I feel like we have done so many new things in one year and that he has just always been here. For his birthday, I wanted to do something really fun.  Something we’ve never done before.  I wanted to take Bean to the zoo.  He’s really into animals right now (and by…
