A Ballerina, Birthday, and a Baby

We've had a busy last week! I had the beginning of the month KGK stuff to do and we were getting ready for Miss A's birthday party:) Time has really been flying this year...can't believe it's September already. This is my favorite part of the year. After Labor Day, we get our beaches back and the weather gets nicer, then comes fall and Halloween, then Thanksgiving and Christmas! I love Sept-Dec!!! Anyways, here is the ONE picture that came out from A's ballet class last week. I had a very short time to get pics, and just had my prime lens, with the manual focus. So combine that with a little dancer who won't be still, and you get lots of blurry pictures:)I took these pictures Friday:
This one below is so him with that drool!! Aislynn hardly ever drooled...I guess it's true what they say...Girls rule, boys drool, ha ha!
He's so sweet:)
I've never thought to open the big window by the stairs to see how the light is until's what I got: I think it's safe to say that I will be doing that again:) Gotta love natural light...and a natural beauty:)
I haven't got all the pictures from A's birthday party, but here is a little collage of some of them: She had a princess themed party, so they decorated crowns (that was a hit!) and played put Cinderella in her castle window (like pin the tail on the donkey). Aislynn had so much fun at her party:) I wanted to make the cake myself and I had major frosting issues. The frosting kept dripping down the sides and there was a pool around the base of the cake, but it was still yummy:) And Aislynn was impressed with it:) I think my favorite thing from her party was when she opened up a present from Shaun and I. We always check out the book, Fancy Nancy: Bonjour Butterfly from the library, so finally we got it for her. When she opened it, she said "Dad, you clean up and Mom will read this to me." She even had a ton of presents left to open, but she wanted to read it right then. She did open the rest, and then she wanted me to read it to her right after. Her friends were playing with some of her toys, but she wanted to read that book:) We have read it quite often since then:)
After 3 granddaughters, my Dad finally got his grandson:) After the party, Kieran passed out with his new cuddly friend from Mimi and Papa:)
After A's party, Aunt Brynne headed up to A's room to help her play with her new loot.
Those are all the pictures for now. I hope everyone had/is having a great holiday weekend!!

A's party was fun! I just love the pic of A with her head in her hands, too cute! Also, the one of K sleeping in your lap with bob-0 hee hee is so sweet too!

Those pics look fun! I love the little ballerina pic! She looks like a little baby in that tutu. Wait til she grows out of her baby body into a little woman. It will shock you!

Oh what a great day with so many smiles! I love them all! That set of pics with the newly found light is WONDERFUL!! And K's little head is so strong already - he's going to be jumping and bopping SO soon!
