"Wild Things"

On Monday night we took our family night to Chick-fil-a. They have such wonderful activities for families and that night they were hosting a "Where the Wild Things Are" evening. Kids that brought a stuffed animal got a free kids meal. They also had animal crafts and face painting. The kids had a blast! How can you go wrong with free food, a play place, friends, and face painting?

Interview with the birthday girl

In the blink of an eye, it seems, my little Peyton has turned four years old. She is such a light and brings such joy to our family. Peyton has a ready smile and an infectious giggle. She loves to learn and help mom and dad. I love hearing her sing and watching her dance. I hope she never stops dancing!

Mom: "What is your favorite color?"
Peyton: "Pink!"

Mom: "What are your favorite things to do?"
Peyton: "Watch TV (Dora, Diego, Fresh Beat Band), play with friends, going to the park, dancing while dad plays the piano, and jumping on the trampoline."

My Ballerina Princess

Happy birthday Peyton!

For her birthday this year Peyton wanted to celebrate with a "ballerina princess" party. She had 5 friends over and each girl made a tutu, we had a ballerina photo shoot, and then we had a dance party to the nutcracker music. Of course the cake and ice cream, pink, as was requested, was a big hit. Peyton loved all her birthday presents. We then printed out the pictures we took and made scrapbook pages with glitter crayons and plenty of ballet stickers.
