Elle turned three years old and Ivan the big one! What a great year we have had, we did A LOT. I believe Ivan is up on Elle on flights within his first year, we traveled quite a bit. The best times are when we are at home and just playing, being silly and enjoying each others company. My favorite thing is to sleep in and when the kids wake up have them cuddle with us. We already sleep with dogs in our bed, so the more the merrier when it comes to cuddling!
I picked a princess and pirate theme for their birthday party only because I got most of it for 60% off at Michaels last summer! It was perfect, then over the holidays I found a lady who specializes in 3D cakes(Sugar Buzz Cakes). I could not have been happier with the way the entire party turned out! We did miss some family members, but they were there in spirit. Here are the photos from what I took, while also hosting the party! Enjoy.
