She got to be special helper at school today, which means she was line leader, got to bring something for show-in-tell, and got to read a book to the class. She was most excited about reading! She loves to read, and so choosing a book proved to be a challenge.
As her treat she brought cupcake pops, made by her mom. I have to say they turned out so cute!! I am definetly going to be making more of those! I will post pics later!
She got many phone calls today from family and loved every minute of it! Jake didn't love it so much, but we'll see how he feels when his birthday comes and they are all calling for him! Her family party is on Sunday, so I still have time to finish my castle cake! She got to go out for a special lunch to the place of her choice, McDonalds w/playland! It was pretty fancy! We finished off the day with her choice for her birthday dinner of Mac 'n' cheese, mashed potatoes, and corn! For dessert she was treated to a trip to the Junction by Mimi and Papa (mom, dad, and Jake got to go too!!) Overall it was a great day!

Okay, so one of my many things that I like to do is to make the kids birthday cakes for them from scratch. They each have had homemade ones, except for their first birthdays. I have made a princess, a dump truck, Mac from Cars, a baseball hat, a cow, and now my darling daughter has requested a castle.
Here is what it looks like:
All the reviews say it is easy, so here's wishing me luck on this adventure! But wait that's not all
for her birthday treat I found these really cute cupcake sticks, they are adorable! So of course I have to make those too! So needless to say we are going to be eating a lot of cake around here!!

We have setteled into the new house, and have moved into a routine. We have made some adjustments, and are now really enjoying our extra space! It has been great to have a bigger backyard, along with an actual playroom for all those toys!!

We went out to lunch just the 3 of us. And had a good time! No fits, no throwing food, just a nice meal with my 3 and 5 year old. That doesn't always happen, but it sure is great when it does!
To finish off our great day we attended our friend Trey's (Marty's) Star Wars themed birthday party! The kids had a blast. Emmah even won the Jedi training course.....maybe we have something there...
Tonight as I look back, we had our little gliches here and there, but I really had a great day with the kids and these are the types of things that I want to always remember.

This weekend was the big move. We moved from our small shoebox house to her house, which is ours now. It gave us twice the space, and many more benefits. (Like a second bathroom!!) It was a crazy weekend, but I think we have found most things, not all! We havea majority of the boxes put away, but still have a ways to go. I am hoping to put a lot of the finishing touches into place over spring break.
I truly feel her here, and that brings me comfort to know that we will add to the already long list of wonderful memories that are here. We made a lot of changes to make it our own. I will post some pictures later next week, when we are done!
