Elizabeth's 7th birthday party #1

Elizabeth had TWO birthday parties when she turned 7. We had one party for the grandparents and one party for her friends. She completely planned her party. She decided the theme would be "Rocks and Minerals" since that is her favorite hobby. She planned the games and did everything!

When her friends arrived, she showed them all her rock collection. 

Then, everyone made Valentine's. 

Elizabeth planned a "gemstone" dig in the sandbox. We bought bags of little jewels and buried them. The sandbox actually did glitter in the sun when the girls walked out there. It was pretty neat!

Everyone got a little baggie full of the "jewels" they found. 

Next, Elizabeth wanted to paint rocks. She found 12 good rocks to paint. We bought paint and they all painted. Elizabeth painted a turtle!

The girls also spent time playing in the backyard. Thank goodness the snow had mostly melted just a few days before! The only snow left in the back now is the snow that is in the shadow of the fence. It was a beautiful (if a bit chilly) day. 

Elizabeth had a great lot of fun opening all her presents and the girls oohed and aahed about the new toys. 

She loved the singing card from Amelia. 

A fun group! Nathan, Jemma, Amelia, Josephine, Elizabeth, Kaijsa, Charlotte, Sophia, Cecilia, Kylie, and Mischa.

Snow Mountains

Just needed to throw up a picture of the kids running across the snow mountains in the church parking lot.

Jeremy and I went to Seattle last week and I took some pretty pictures of the drive. 

We went the Snoqualmie Falls way and made a quick stop by the falls. It was 45 degrees so I thought it would feel warm compared to the 10 degrees it was at home. Yet it somehow still felt really cold? 


Elizabeth has been begging me for bangs for a while. They will take a bit more maintenance, but hopefully her hair is straight enough they will lie flat and not be too much to work with. Here she is with her new bangs.
