Happy Halloween

This Halloween was by far the warmest Halloween I remember in a long time, it was awesome!
We went Trick or Treating at Josh's work, went to a Trunk or Treat at the Doug Smith car dealership, and then went Trick or Treating around the neighborhood. We got loads of candy- Alli was so hyped up on sugar by the end of the night.

Here are some more pictures of our pretty princess. This little Rapunzel dress has been on here a lot by now, but she totally knew she looked pretty so she was doing all these serious poses for me before we left  and I was loving it =)

She got scared at Josh's work and then kept saying she wanted to go home. She hates scary things...But then on the way home she said she had fun, so who knows. You can tell in this picture she was not really into it, but hey we tried.

Sugar Cookies & Dance Party

We made some Halloween sugar cookies a couple days ago and then had some neighbors come over and frost/decorate them...she loves to have people come over! 
It sounded like a lot of work to me, but I caved in and we did it. It was actually really fun! I didn't get pictures of the actual cookies and decorating but they turned out SO soft, cute and delicious.
 I did however, get some pictures while we were making them. 
I hope she remembers how I let her cook with me, make messes a lot and just be a kid!

 I promise I washed her hands and cleaned the table like 3 times prior to this =)

Alli's dance had a really cute Halloween party. There was face painting, a fishing booth, nail painting, balloon-tying, bounce houses, stickers and lots of treats. She had a great time!

Showing me her curtsey, she told me "princesses do this"

Halloween Fun

Rapunzel...aka to go on her first round of Trick-O-Treating today at her preschool. She was so excited! I'm pretty sure she is the most perfect Rapunzel with her long blonde Rapunzel hair!

Also, she had her 4 year appointment today and here are her stats:

Weight: 36.82 lbs (65th percentile)
Height: 39.75 inches (52nd percentile)
Doctor says she's not underweight, not overweight, just perfect...AND the best part is that she didn't have to get any shots this time, yay!

Birthday Continued...

We had a little family party with just our little family on Alli's real birthday. We had a dinner, had more cake and opened more presents from us and the Grandparents and then went to Build-a-Bear. I think she had a super fun day. She kept telling us Thank You, and when she was helping me make some frosting earlier, she said.."Mom, Thanks for everything," and "This is so Great!" It was so sweet, it made my day! Don't you love it when kids say stuff like that? It makes me think that maybe I'm teaching her something right.

This cake was pretty hideous looking, but it tasted good!

Here she is at the Build-A-Bear Workshop. She picked out a puppy instead of a bear and named it "Alyiah," pronounced "E- Leah," you gotta be sure to get the E in there, she corrected me several times =)

Happy Birthday Sweet Girl, We Sure Do Love You!

Hee Haw Farms

We went to Hee Haw Farms with my Mom, sister, Kael & Dax after Alli's birthday party. She loves pumpkin patches and she had been talking about going to get her "punkin" for weeks. It was so Hot, it felt like summer..if you can't tell by her rosy cheeks! All of us were dying of heat near the end.

We couldn't leave without a pony ride and luckily there wasn't even a line when we went. She LOVES horses and pony rides...always has. We've been reading a book about "Shetland Ponies," so she kept telling me she wanted to ride the "Shetland Pony."

The Barbie Party

Alli had her much anticipated friend Barbie Birthday Party yesterday and it turned out so cute! She loved it. It was kind of a workout for my Mom and I, but we did it. 
We painted nails, put on a little make up, took some pictures, played games, had cake & ice cream and opened presents. Happy Birthday to our Barbie Princess! Her real birthday is on the 19th, so we'll be celebrating again shortly.

 Waiting for her friends to arrive, she could hardly wait!

*Cake & Icecream*

 She was IN LOVE with her Barbie cake! She kept checking on it in the fridge the night before and even told it goodnight!

Make a wish!

She opened her presents in about 3 minutes I think. She had one little melt down when everyone wanted to play with her toys, but she did pretty good sharing them overall. 

A big thanks to Grandma for all your help and all of the little friends for coming and making Alli's party so special and fun!
