I have a 5th grader!!
I remember when she was just a little preschooler...
|My baby girl when she was 3|
Now she's into the double-digits and acting all teenagery...
|Baby girl at 10|
She opted for pie over cake this year so I picked up a Coconut Cream pie, a Chocolate Cream pie, a Millionaire Cream pie and an Apple pie from Pioneer Pies. Everybody loves pie, right?
Emi got pied:
|Emi was left holding on tight to the pie|
|Fear the Beard (the whipped cream beard)|
|Somebody ensured that the pie got into his lovely curls that are growing back...|
Later on we had some Nutella Gelato that we made earlier in the day (Giada calls it Chocolate-Hazelnut Gelato but we call it like it is!) It was di-vine!
|This is all we have left now....it's all over but the crying...|
It was an exhausting weekend for a couple of us with getting the yard in shape for the party (in 100+ degree weather) and then hosting a sleepover after the pool party. I was falling asleep in church and then later at my folks' house I snuggled up in a chair and succumbed to slumber....
Now, I am ready to slow things down a little for this short work week and am looking forward to taking it easy for the 4th...
How about you, any big plans for Independence Day?
