Birthday Weekend and so much more....

Grandmother surprised us with a visit Thursday night!! We were all VERY happy to see her, but these two little ones were beside themselves!

Dantz trying out Lydia's birthday present before she woke up Friday morning.
She thinks she needs her own!

Wahoo!! Check out my Pinkalicious Bicycle! When I woke her up Friday morning, I told her Happy Birthday and she said, right now? Love it!

Happy 3rd Birthday, Lydia! It's PARTY TIME.

Dantz, Owen, L and Claire having some sandbox FUN!

Some of the cutest princesses I've ever seen...

Hey Tiny D!! You are lookin' cute!

Happy Birthday to you, Happy Birthday Dear Lydia...

Make a wish birthday girl... AND ENJOY THAT CAKE! :)

The party is over!! It was great fun and Lydia had a blast!
(however, none of you obeyed the *no gifts please rule :) She loved all of her presents. Thanks everyone! )

Sweet Girl Cousin time before Church this morning.

After lunch today we made it happen and she knew is was coming....

We tied that pink, nasty silicone paci that she has had for years to ribbon....

And told that paci, "bye-bye"

And up, up and away it went.... It seriously brought a tear to my eye because it was one of the sweetest things that I have ever seen. We watched is for several minutes and it was super cool.

She was clapping and saying, "I'm a big girl now!!" We are so proud of her!
She immediately went inside and took a 2 1/2 hour nap without it. Hooray!
What a weekend!
