While I have been posting for the past 3 weeks about our trip to Europe - our lives have been moving full speed ahead so now I have a bunch of catching up to do!
We recently celebrated 2 birthdays - Isaac's and Cate's. This year was a "Friends" year for Cate so we decided to have an ice skating party. And for the party favors I made each girl a simple scarf and rolled it up with gloves, hot chocolate and mentos.
I was a little worried about whether or not these cute girls would enjoy it - but even with a few falls they had a blast! Especially Cate!
Sarah even started skating without a skate aid this year!
Whoever invented these skate aids should be a millionaire!
We had a snack break while they smoothed the ice.
Back to the table for cake and presents.
Cate has a smile that lights up the room! She was thrilled with her party.
Her favorite present was something she has been asking for for a loooooong time: An American Girl Doll.
And she got her ears pierced! Here she is before...
A little bit nervous - as an audience starts to gather outside the store window. Cate is holding a Teddy Bear and Addie's hand for comfort.
Ear number one.
Ear number two.
All done! What a cutie pie!
Happy Birthday Cate! We love, love, love, love you!
