In other news...he's been a bit grumpy. But, for good reason. He got 2 teeth in just 1 week. That would make anyone grumpy!
Sam wanted to be a Garden Fairy for her party!Samantha had her fairy birthday party this past friday. It turned out really well, with LOTS of girls in their fairy wings. We made fairy wands, played a couple fairy games, ate cake, and opened presents. We had a little time at the end, so we watched some of the Tinkerbell movie. I think everyone had fun...I know Samantha did! Everyone looked so cute, and played the "fairy" role very well. Here's some pictures of our night!

Our little Samantha turned the BIG 5 on Monday! Where did the past 5 years go??? It's just crazy how time flies! Anyways, we started the day off with a present. It doesn't get much better than this...a new doll house!!! She loves it! So, after a quick peek at her new doll house we headed out for some visiting teaching. I know, not too fun for her, but you gotta do what you gotta do. We stayed home for the better part of the day, due to me having some kidney pain. Not sure what was going on, but I was very uncomfortable and needed to just chill. SO, that's what we did. I did a lot of resting on the couch while the kids played. FINALLY, her time had come. It was party time! We decided to keep it low key and head to Red Robin for some good family fun. We celebrated with Jeremy's family (we celebrated with my dad the Saturday before) and brought cake and all her other presents to the restaurant. It turned out great! The food is always so yummy and the servers were fabulous. Our server, along with a gang of other servers, came to join in the fun by presenting Samantha with her hot pink Hello Kitty birthday cake, candles lit and all! They, of course, had a fun birthday song for her as well. She seemed to really like the attention. After a song and cake Sam opened her presents and the party was over, until next week. Next week is her fairy party with her little girlfriends. So, more party pics to come! Happy Birthday Samantha!!! We love you!
Tight fit...I need to rearrange her room a bit.
