Let The Party Start

Saturday, was Dagny’s birthday party.  Because her birthday is so close to Thanksgiving, we figured we would go ahead and move the party up a couple of weeks.  It worked out good, because almost everyone we invited was able to make it.

The party was at Kango Play Center.  We’ve been there twice before, a birthday party and a play date.  Needless to say, Dagny fell in love with the place.  We gave her a few options and Kango was the winner hands down.

She wanted a pink and purple cake with Spider-Man on it.  Can I just say how much I love this girl!

Someone got shy with all the attention on her.

Ah, the gifts.  D made out like a bandit.

Love these three girls so much.  They are the Three Musketeers.

Three wise monkeys.

Dagny has some pretty wonderful friends. The next day it was about playing with all her new toys. Here is one of the many great gifts she received. She LOVES her tree house.

I was able to pull her away long enough to take her to see the OrKidstra Runaway Bunny. Kids were encourage to dress up in their Halloween costumes.

Here she is waiting for the show to start.

Here are the two girls enjoying the candy they received after the show.

It was a fun filled weekend.  Happy Pre Birthday, Dagny!


Metcha Day (Number 3)

Three years ago, our lives changed forever. We met our little angel and it’s been the most amazing experience.

Here is my little cutie back in 2008.

And, today!

Dear Dagny,

We love you so much!



Greatest Show On Earth

Thursday, Dagny and I went to see the Ringling Bros. and Barnum & Bailey Circus. We were joined by her good friend and mom. This was the first time for both of us at the circus. Craig boycotted it because of the animals. He doesn’t believe they should be in cages and preforming for our enjoyment. I whole heartily agree with him on this, but I really wanted Dagny to experience the clowns and acrobats. So, of course whenever the animals came out, I was hearing Craig’s voice in my head and remembering the book Water for Elephants. I found myself looking away. Besides my internal struggles about the animals; I really liked everything else. Some of the things were actually pretty amazing. Plus, Dagny and her friend had a blast.

It’s been busy around here. I am not even going to try and recap, but I will share photo highlights.
