Gabby took her second trip to Dallas last weekend. We were very excited about this special trip because it would be the first time Gabby met her cousins and Aunt Danielle from Japan. Once we arrived we walked in the house and were greeted by 3 squealing little girls and one adorable baby girl, Molly. As I go to ooh and ahh over the little one and receive hugs from all of my other sweet nieces, to our astonishment, Uncle Mark appeared out of no where! Uncle Mark was supposed to be in Iraq, but when he arrived they requested he return home. He took two weeks of leave and flew half way across the world to visit his family. What a great surprise! I was holding Gabby and began introducing her to Molly. Instantly they held hands! It was adorable, I only wish I could have taken a picture of them holding hands. Such little babies reaching out to each other, it shows how some people naturally "connect" to one another. The girls had a wonderful weekend together. Since Gabby and Molly were born only 6 days apart they ate at about the same time, napped the same amount, and played on the floor cooing at each other with three other little onlookers taking turns playing mama. It was adorable seeing all of the girls together and I believe it's the best visit we've ever had with the entire family together.
Gabby's party was everything she imagined it. The 22 girls enjoyed getting their hair and make up done. Then they all put on their head set microphone and then headed onto stage and enjoyed performing their favorite songs. The girls seemed to really like the party that Gabby planned. After cake and gifts the girls went back to the stage for an encore (or 5). A few of the moms at the party even attempted to escape from one of our escape rooms. Gabby seemed to love having the run of Escape Artist and showing off the rooms to all of her friends. It is amazing how many people love and care for Gabby. We are so grateful for all of the friends and fun that was had at her party!
