Yet Another Birthday Party and An Escape Artist



My oldest daughter wanted a separate birthday bash from her sister Mikayla. If you'll remember they share the same birthday. Really 12 years old and 9 years old are not that far apart but when you are a little girl it's such a huge difference. Lexi is my oldest and she wanted to do a big party so we let her have a few friends over. They sang karaoke, listened to music, played some basketball outside and had cake. It went well! Here are a few pics of the fun day.


Sing it Lexi!

The Girls

We had some good singers!

Hubby on Guitar!

She can play! She's learning.



It was a great day. Lexi got herself all dolled up for the special occasion.

Now what about this escape artist? Gabriella is trying to get out of her playpen. She has a Dora Backpack toy which she stands on. She then tries to raise her leg over the side. I was lucky enough to snap a shot of the possible escape.

Thinking about it.

Smooches from Mom

The leg is raised.

And now the leg is resting on the side. Not bad!

I'm glad the birthday went well. Looks like they had a ball. Good for them.

As for the escape artist. It's fun to watch them figure out how to escape. It's frightening too, but it's just part of growing up.

Have a terrific day. :)

It's amazing how those little ones can get their legs way up there!! Looks like she'll be wandering around when she wants soon. They are not babies for long..soon they start wanting to do things their way, lol!!
