Happy Easter!

Today was the quietest Easter we've had since being blessed with Gabby.  We stayed home and Grandma and Papa came over to celebrate and eat lunch. While I was preparing for lunch and Michael was still asleep, Gabby snuck into her Easter basket, tore it apart and began eating jelly beans, all before 8:00 a.m.!  Once Grandma and Papa arrived we exchanged hugs and then finished cooking dinner, which was delicious and Gabby did not even taste.  All I think Gabby ate today was two "Easter eggs," cookies, bread, and candy.  Pretty hard for this mommy to take!

After lunch we went on a walk and looked at houses for sale in the neighborhood.  Gabby loved exploring the houses and riding in the wagon.  Then it was time to have an Easter egg hunt.  It was very hot, but since it was just Gabby it was pretty fast.  Her surprises ranged from stamps, to coins, to Littlest Pet Shop toys, to a few candy ones.  The we paqued eggs, ate peach cobbler, and cleaned up a little.  Gabby of course was super excited that there was a surprise in each of her eggs.  Since Gabby didn't go to sleep until late the night and wasn't in the best of moods, she actually napped.  When she woke up Grandma and Papa had left, so we enjoyed playing with Gabby and watching movies.

This Easter was very nice and relaxing (although we missed family).  I hope everyone had a fabulous Easter full of events to make for lasting memories.

Rock Star Party

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!  

Happy Father's Day!

Father's Day was a relaxing day.  Michael has been working extremely hard building things at the escape room.  We decided to spend the day with his best friend.  It was a fun and relaxing day enjoying the kids and cooking burgers.  I think these pictures depict our day:

I think Gabby knows that she is so blessed to have such a loving, caring, involved fun Daddy.  I know that I am lucky to have such an amazing partner sharing this crazy life of parenting and making memories.  We love you Michael and we both feel so blessed for the ways you choose to so your love.  You make our lives amazing.  Love you.

Deep In the Heart of Texas!

Gabby's dance recital theme this year was "Texas."  Gabby's tap and jazz class chose "Deep In the Heart of Texas!"  Gabby worked extremely hard to learn her dance over the past two months and I must say she did amazing! I loved watching her put on a big smile and shake her hips in her tutu while pumping her heart in the dance.  She did very well and seemed so confident while performing on stage (although that wasn't truly the case).

Yesterday at the dress rehearsal Gabby heard people laughing (because her dance is so stinking adorable) and Gabby was very upset that people were laughing at her.  I calmed her down after ensuring her everyone loved their dance and were just being interactive because they were enjoying singing along \the song and clapping when while singing.  They ran through their dance twice on stage and did amazing the second time, but I think the fact that they ran through their dance twice made Gabby feel like they weren't doing i…
