Birthday Party!

True love between two sisters…How could we resist a Frozen Birthday Party??!
Tomorrow, (or tonight in India), is the girls 3rd Birthday, but today we celebrated! It was such a tremendous blessing filling our house with all the people that love our precious princesses! 


Simone sneaking into the powdered donuts before the party guests arrived...




Our family photographer sent me 2 pictures just in time to place on the mantle before the party started!...

We had family over for breakfast and cupcakes!...




Cousin Caroline came as our Princess Anna. And she was beautiful!..


Simone's face was perpetually covered in powdered sugar…(Simone left, Roxie right.)

Roxie sneaking some icing...

Roxie...

A little game of pin the nose on Olaf...





The kiddoes started off our breakfast with a little game of 'eat the dangling donut.' No hands!




Roxie playing with her new beauty parlor set from Grandma Valerie and Grandpa Spencer...

Enamored with the Happy Birthday singing… (Roxie left, Simone right.)


Aunt Liz indulging Roxie...

This was our first Birthday party to actually have lots and lots of guests attend! :) We've celebrated all of Jude's Birthday's while living far away from family. But today, living close to family made our hearts full.

Pictures!


Jude at his parent teacher conference. The meeting was "student led" so Jude decided to show us how they discuss the weather each day on the smart board. 

Jude has always slept like a little angel with his hands folded under his cheeks...

This kid. He changes clothes about 4 times a day. At least!...


Our girls have such incredible upper body strength. They make me giggle with all the ways they monkey around. Simone hanging...

11 months home and the girls got their first U.S. haircuts! No razors please! Simone absolutely and entirely loved having her hair cut. She is obsessed with brushing her hair. In the picture, Roxie is on my lap and Simone is standing...

Selfie with Roxie...

The temps dropped 40 degrees in one night! And the girls are liking their cold weather gear…(Simone left, Roxie right.)
