Happy 6th Birthday MALIA!

Six years ago today we welcomed little Malia Lyn into our lives. Little did we know she would be so funny, quick, wild & crazy, outgoing, beautiful, kind and intelligent! I do remember thinking she was watching EVERYTHING and EVERYONE right after she was born. She wasn't missing anything - right from the start.

I can't believe 6 whole years have gone by so quickly! I can still remember the day she was born, all of the details from that day and all of our visitors.

Here she is with her Cousin Kelli when she was 2 hours old:

Here she is at 2 days old, ready to see her home for the first time. We came home on Halloween. I remember carving a pumpkin and passing out candy to trick or treaters that first night she was home. she is today. All grown up and...........SIX years old!!!

Disney On Ice

Tomorrow is Malia's 6th birthday (where does the time go??), so for part of her gift we went to Disney on Ice last week. We all went (except Ella), and had a great time! It was a little rushed - Malia had her last soccer game right before - and she even scored 2 goals in the 15 minutes she played! Woo hoo! She changed in the car, and we were off.

Here are the kids before the show -checking out the Princess dresses on display. They were very beautiful! Alex doesn't look too thrilled though. :)

The show started off with Minnie, Mickey, Donald and Goofy....then went right into CARS! Alex loved it!
Next was the Little Mermaid. I kept thinking it was Joan Allen (the actress).
After that was the Lion King.
After a short intermission (not sure why....maybe for the small bladders in the audience? Rourke was sure it was just to sell more cr@p!) the show finished with Tinkerbell! The Queen Fairy (not sure of her real name) floated up above with a gorgeous white sparkly dress. Hard to tell in the picture below.
It was a fun night, eventhough Alex was exhausted and said he hated it. The next morning he said he loved it!
Hope you are all having a great week! We have one sick - no fever, but flu like in every other way. No food will stay down.
Happy Wednesday~

Happy World Card Making Day!

I'm sure you are all busy making cards today - lol...........I am a crafter, so I happen to know there is actually a day for this! Pretty soon there will be a day for everything. :)

Here are a few cards I made last night with the Close to My Heart girls at our monthly meeting. I tried out a new "fan fold flower" for these mini-cards.
They measure 3"x3".

It's hard to see the details in the pictures, but the edges of the flowers are lightly glittered, and the white center circle too. I think they are much prettier in real life.

Have a happy Saturday!
