They're FOUR!!

I seriously can't believe these two little girls are four! FOUR!
Seems like yesterday they were little preemies and I was hauling around 2 car seats! Now they are the sweetest little girls. They are so alike it's scary. They are shy and quiet, have soft hearts, and soft little high pitched voices. They love anything girly and LOVE to sing! All day I hear these little high pitched voices singing random made up songs while they play with their barbies or dolls. Some days I wish for ear plugs...
They LOVE to color. They could color or draw all day. They are really into colors lately and every day they have a different favorite color.
They are kind of a little wussy. They freak out at any bug, don't like doing anything by themselves and don't like trying anything new. We are working on this!

So we had a party to end off our crazy weekend. We had to delay it because of Jayci being sick and all. By the way she is back to normal and doing great. Still on her antibiotics but she's pretty much all better! Thank goodness.
The twins wanted a Bubble Guppies party. Which I thought might be difficult since the show is so new and there probably isn't anything bubble guppies around!
So I decided to play off the bubble theme and searched online for stuff. Luckily Nickjr.com has a ton of birthday printables! So we had a bubble guppies center piece, photo prop, wall decor, birthday banner, etc. I also got clear balloons and Dustin hung them around like bubbles from the ceiling. It was cute. I also attempted gelatin bubbles for the cakes. They were hideous and a lot of work, so I didn't use them. I was worried when I saw them online because some of them look pretty bad. I want to try sugar blown bubbles but they looked a lot more difficult! Anyways, so I pulled off the fondant on the cakes and just iced them myself. They turned out way better. Not sure what's with me and failing in the cake department. Dustin thinks I should have just got ice cream cakes. ha. I love making the cakes, I just need to learn to start sooner than the night before the party! Especially when trying something new!

The party was a little crazy. There were 11 kids in total. Yup.
But they had fun. It was funny the twins were the quietest ones the whole time! They said they had fun though, so that's good!

Birthday breakfast on Sunday!

Birthday girls on party day!

 The Cakes!

Playing pin the tail on the Bubble Guppy! The big poster wouldn't print off so we improvised with a small one.

Getting ready to eat

Opening gifts!

Happy Birthday!! Love how she is blowing out the candles. Jayci's pictures of blowing them out turned out all blurry, (mhm Dustin) so hers is after they were out.

Excuse this amazing photo of myself, but it's the only shot of the "bubbles" on the ceiling. 

The party people!

Birthday girls!!

And the attacking on Dustin. Love it.

The Bubble Guppies poster! Love this.

 And probably my favorite one...

 So cute right?? I could eat her up.

Jayci and Presley after with all their gifts! Thanks everyone! 

Now I have NOTHING! Everything is DONE! No wedding, birthdays, dance, it's all done and I can just enjoy summer and getting ready for school in the fall! Ps: Did I mention Dustin is all registered!! Hallelujah! I also should mention he got the LAST seat in the class. Almost caused a divorce. ha. But we are in and looking forward to it! One last time!!

My little Ballerina!!

Kyla had her year end dance recital today!
This week has been crazy with dress rehearsals and volunteering for a rehearsal and a recital show! Plus everything else that's been going on. (If you don't know, read previous post)
I was super excited to FINALLY watch her perform. I was one proud mama sitting in the front row! I definitely cried, almost to the point of bawling my eyes out. I almost cried in all the little kid dances! Could be a little pms in there too, but whatever. She did SO well! They were supposed to be butterflies and danced to "Somewhere over the rainbow" which didn't help with my crying issues!
It's been a long year but so worth it. I can't wait to put the twins in next year and Kyla wants to go into hip hop or Jazz because Ballet is "slow and kind of boring" as she says. ha. But she loved performing on stage, she said that was the funnest part. So i'm glad. Her teacher said she is doing so well and a quick learner and they had a class full of a lot of smart students. So looks like she is enjoying it!
We brought Jayci and Presley to watch her with us and Jill and Emma came too! We were literally front row so she saw us right away. It was so dang cute. I wish I could have videod it but we weren't allowed and since we were front row it would have been a little obvious.

I can't say enough how excited I was for her! I wanted her in dance so bad so this was so exciting for me! I such a first time mom, and will probably be like this every time, for every kid...

Here is her recital day!!

Chilling with her class mates in between shows.

And after with all her fans!

Missing Laken. We left her with a sitter.

So while we were outside the college I took advantage of it and snapped some shots of her since she was all dressed up and the building beside the college matched perfectly!
 I want to put a few in her room.

Love them.

Can't decide if I like color or black and white. So you get both. Lucky you.

That's all! I'm one proud mom!!
Good job beautiful girl! We love you!!
