I'm Alive!!!!

and I've got pictures to prove it!!! Here's a recap of the little ones actual 4th birthday, Wednesday, May 6th. The man came home early from work and we went ahead and gave the little one her "BIG" present. A used new bike.
I know she digs the pink training wheels....

We then took the little one out to a new cupcake shop in town called Gigi's Cupcakes. I opted not to get one because I new there would cake later that I put my blood, sweat and tears into!! The little one got the Kiddie Kake and the man got the Midnight Magic Chocolate Chip. You know I sampled some of that shizzzz*&$!!!

I had pics of the actual cupcake but due to recent computer trouble I am unable to retrieve them :(.

I then headed home to finish up the cake that I screwed up in more ways than one. I will spare you the details.
The important thing is is that nobody could tell I screwed it up and actually looked pretty good and tasted even better!!

We then had tons of some family over for happy birthday and cake and ice cream.

Whoa, Mom watch that knife!!!!

After everyone left and we all settled down the little one decided to put on a fashion show for us with all her new clothes....
She proceeded to try on about 3 more outfits and drop about 50 more poses but I wont bore you. At some point we noticed that she never came back up after an outfit change. We found the little angel passed out obviously trying to put on her new PJs....

Sweet, sweet baby :)

The rest of the week was split with visiting my family that was in town and feeding my second baby every 3 hours.

That's a rubber glove filled with kitten formula. The only way she will eat.

Then Saturday was the little ones birthday party for her and her friends. She wanted to skate, so skate she did...
Her and some of her party goers in the back ground.The cake ended up being free because Publix totally screwed it up!! I was so mad! It was supposed to look like an electric guitar. Sorta like this cake...
but instead I think they channeled a banjo...There was also several other things they screwed up...I am convinced I could have done it better myself!! Love this smile...
Well, that's all for now. I will come back later with a recap of my wonderful Mothers Day.

CONFESSION OF THE DAY: I didn't finish college. Hope to someday soon though.....
