a visit from Grandma B & Maryn turns 3!

We had a super fun time during Grandma B's visit. Many crafts created, many treats consumed, many Wii hours logged, and many memories made. Thanks for coming Grandma! For more photos of the fun, click here.

During the visit, we threw a birthday party for Maryn (a few days early). She invited 5 other little girls and we had a great time! They made necklaces, magic wands and crowns. They watched a clip from Enchanted (Maryn's favorite movie), went on a treasure hunt, ate decadent pink cake with ice cream, and attacked the mound of presents with the voracity of baby tigresses- all in the course of 90 minutes. For complete pics of the event, click here. The photo below is of Maryn in her favorite gift- a Cinderella dress (from Grandma B).

Oh, is that what a Cinderella dress is supposed to look like? Ours looks much more like Cinderella's rags at this point!

Happy Birthday Maryn! Can't believe she's already 3!

Maryn looks so... so... serene! Just like a real princess! I so wish I could have been there for the fun. We'll just have to make it another time soon. Love you guys!

What a fun visit!! It makes me jealous to visit. The party looked so much fun. Great cake by the way. You did a good job!
Lots of fun. Good pictures with your new camera too!
Eventually, I will make it out there again. Life is too crazy lately. Mat is excited to come soon, though!
