Florida 2008

Family and Fun in the Sun! That is how we describe our trip to Florida! We really had a wonderful time visiting with Grandpa and Grandma Davis, the Williams family, the Stoddard family and Uncle Jason. Every day consisted of getting up, putting on swim suits and having fun until dinner time. It was so nice to spend time with loved ones. We look forward to seeing them again!

While reading a Fancy Nancy book before bed, Alison asked,
"Mom, is poop a fancy word?"

The Princess Party

Alison wanted a Disney Princess Party for her birthday. She asks at least once a day when we are going back to Disneyland. So I decided to bring Disney Princess' to her. All the guests wore their best princess attire. We had a lot of fun dancing, playing games and eating cake and ice cream. Which the girls decided to put their faces into! It was a magical day for Alison and she had a lot of fun. That night when I was laying with her she said,"I wish my party was longer! Mom, you took some gorgeous pictures of me today!"
Oh how lovely!

Good Times

Alison Turns 4

Happy Birthday to our sweet little girl! She started the morning off with a chocolate doughnut picked out especially for her from John. He was wrapping her present the night before and he suggested that we go buy her a princess balloon. What a sweet brother! So off to the Dollar Store we went to get a balloon. The doughnut store is on the next block so we had to get her favorite, chocolate icing with sprinkles! She loved her gifts and that kept her entertained all day long.
In the afternoon we headed to Build- A- Bear Workshop to make Hello Kitty. This had been on her wish list and Grandma and Grandpa Thompson had given her a gift card to help get it made. She had so much fun stuffing her, grooming her and picking out clothes. Hello Kitty even got Hello Kitty underwear, Hello Kitty purse, and Hello Kitty hair bows! That is one lucky kitty.
Alison requested Red Robin for dinner. We went and it was John's special job to help me tell the waitress that it was Alison's birthday. He was so proud of himself for telling her so they could surprise Alison with a fun hat they made and an ice cream sundae! John even benefited from that because Alison did not want it.
She had a great day and got everything she wanted! Thank you to Grandma and Grandpa Davis for the darling outfit and Gabriella Barbie Doll. Thank you to John for the Prince Barbie Doll. Thank you to Grandma and Grandpa Thompson for the gift card. And of course, thank you to mom and dad for the Disney Princess Carriage, High School Musical Dance Mat, and July Barbie Doll.
Happy Birthday from Red Robin
