Grandma's visit

We had the honor of my mom visiting this past week-a long awaited event in our home! The 5 days she was here were full of lots of fun things with the kids. Grandma took the girls out and got them all these cute matching shirts, which they proudly wore! This was followed by a hair curling session, leaving them looking like beauty queens!

Another fun surprise Grandma had sent to our house-a tetherball! I don't know if you remember these from when you were a kid, but they are so much fun! Beware, though, adults can get quite competitive when it comes to playing!

The highlight of the weekend was my 4 year old's birthday party-we delayed it about a week, just so Grandma could attend. The theme? Horses! My 11 yo made up these cute horsie tails for everyone and glued felt ears to headbands, too!

We had some fun games like pin the tail on the donkey and horseshoes.

Then it was on to the cake!

Here's my sweetie blowing out the candles!

What a great visit---it ended too soon! We are looking forward to her coming back to visit!
