"Look, Mom!"

Yesterday while I was getting ready, Ruby was hanging around the bathroom (as usual). She brought this into me and said, "Look, Mom! I made you a birthday cake!" Creativity at its finest.

Lucy's Blessing Day

Lucy got blessed last Sunday. The day couldn't have been more perfect. Nick gave Lucy such a special blessing. I'm so thankful and lucky to have such a great husband who holds and honors his priesthood.

Our new family of four!

 Ruby still trying to get the hang of holding her sister

 That's better...

Lucy's not so sure about this...

 Grandma Giles & Lucy! Happy baby!

Of course we can't get a picture with everyone looking normal. Love Ruby's face.

Mommy & Lucy. She was ready for pictures and the dress to be done!

 Isn't she so cute in that dress?

Ruby's Princess Party

 Ruby with her Princess Ariel cake

 We started off the weekend by celebrating Ruby's 3rd birthday (late). My mom was already coming up for Lucy's blessing, so we decided to have her official birthday party while she was here.
Of course Ruby wanted a princess party. She had been talking about it since Christmas!

 The Ariel cake. Turned out better than I ever would have imagined. Ruby loved getting to keep her when we pulled her out of the cake. I'm not quite ready for naked barbies around the house so I'm glad that Ariel has permanent clothes on her!

 The girls decorated paddles (paper plates & painter sticks) and then hit a bunch of balloons all around the house. It was a hit! (Thanks Melinda!)

Princess Ruby and her very original crown

What's a princess without a crown? Thank goodness for these foam crowns at our local craft store that were only $1. I was so glad we didn't have to make them ourselves. The girls decorated them with jewels, stickers and glitter glue.

 Princess Sienna- just entering the fascinating world of princessdom

 Princess Hannah- look at all those jewels!

Ruby opening presents. The first, a darling parasol umbrella. We played some more games, colored, sang, danced, ate cake and had a wonderful time. Ruby loved every second!

Enjoying the party!
