All About the Addi!

My precious alone time with Addi is winding down and I can't help but spend it doing awesome things with her.  This week we did painting and baking!  It's so much fun! 

She makes the funniest faces when she gets her picture taken now! 
Addi made me lunch in "her" kitchen!
The next day it was off to a birthday party!  Addi is so proud of herself as she brings the gift to the party!
Addi sitting by the birthday girl!  Ready for some party food!
All of the sweet girlies at the party.
Addi went down the BIG slide!  What fun!
All of the kiddos with their "rock star" sun glasses on!  Addi had a blast!

I only have one more week of special Addi/Mommy days.  I better make the best of it! 

Enjoy today!

Celebrating Destiny

Hey Friends!  On Tuesday we celebrated Destiny's birthday with her classmates at school. 
Her teacher sang a cute "candle song" and Destiny got to blow out her 5 candles.
The kids really enjoyed themselves at the "party".
Destiny will cherish these pictures forever.  She loves her teacher!
All the kids eating their cupcakes.
Destiny playing with her friends.

Addi has a special friend at Destiny's school too.  This little girl always takes Addi under her wing and plays with her when we volunteer.

Destiny being silly with puzzles pieces of dog's ears.
After her school party, we came home for a quick rest and then headed back to the school for a Winter Wonderland Disco.  Addi dressed up too!
So cute!
Funny faces!

Destiny in front of her school.
The best part of the night!  Hot dogs!

It's so hard to believe that Destiny is 5 years old today.  She amazes me each day with everything she knows.  We are so blessed to have a beautiful daughter like her.  She started her birthday out with breakfast in bed and now is ready to head over to a friend's house while mommy and daddy visit with the doctor about baby brother.  She is so excited!  We let her pick out her restaurant of choice for dinner tonight and she picked Costco!  So I guess pizza is on the menu for tonight! 

Thanks to all of you who have sent her special email messages, gifts, and cards in the mail.  It has made her day extra special!
Enjoy today!

Dance Overload

 Hey Friends!  This is what happens when you bring two cameras along to a dance performance!  Oodles and oodles of dancey pictures that I just have to post on here.  It was a HUGE event in my daughter's life so I guess it warrants 3 seperate blogs :)  Getting ready was super fun!  Hair spray and red finger nail polish. 
 Ready for the show!
 We snapped a quick pic of me at 37 weeks.  Wow!  Time flies!  A quick baby update:  Things are going well.  Baby looked great on my last ultrasound and I am so looking forward to meeting him.  If only we were close on picking a name for him!?!  Any suggestions?  I am still feeling pretty good, however, I have really slowed down.  You know that you have "slowed down" when you are passed by a runner while you are biking!  To my defence, I had both the girls in tow in the bike trailer.  I was still pretty embarrassed to be passed by a runner!  I feel like my belly is the biggest it has ever been, but then I measured it and it still has a few inches to grow if I want to be as big as I was when I was expecting Destiny!  {I hope I don't grow that much!}

 On the front steps and ready to go!
 Me and my chickie babe!
 Destiny took a picture of her proud parents in the lobby before the performance started.
 Sisters, ready for the show.
 Time to go back stage!
 Lined up with her teacher and classmates.
After the performance, we celebrated at Hog's Breath Cafe.  Curly fries and chicken nuggets were on the menu for the girlies! 

That's all for dance pics!  I hope you enjoyed them!  Tomorrow, Destiny has her last dance class of the term and she is really looking forward to seeing her dance friends on her birthday!

Enjoy today!

Dance, Dance, Dance!

Hey Friends!  We captured a few fun pictures before Destiny's performance started!  We were in row two so we had the perfect view of the stage!
 Destiny and Addi had so much fun posing for the camera!
 Addi was silly!
 So cute!  Ready to dance!
 The girls and me, just waiting!
 Destiny in the middle of the 3 "strawberries" (red dresses!).
 Destiny had so much fun dancing!
 The part of the song when they sing, "put your hands up, put your hands up".
 Addi put her hands up!
The end!

She's such a dance star!  It sounds like we might have 2 little dance stars on our hands next term.  Addi has been begging to join in on the "little girl" class! 

Speaking of dancing, we are off to Destiny's school disco!

Enjoy today!

Here is my little Dancerella Destiny!  She's a "strawberry"; wearing a red dress and in the middle of the other 2 girls in red dresses!  She had her big performance on Saturday night at the Play House here in Canberra.  *the video starts at about 25 seconds*

Enjoy the video and I'll be back tomorrow with some pictures of the performance!

Enjoy today!

Just Me and My AddiSue

Hey Friends!  How is your weekend going?  Ours has been busy, yet productive!  This last week I have really embraced my special time with Addi.  Since Destiny started school, Addi and I have had 2 days per week to spend "together time" with each other.  We love going to play group and on our shopping adventures! 

Addi is such a great girl and I feel so blessed to have had this little amount of time to really spend time with just her.  In the picture above, she has dressed herself.  Her sense of fashion is ridiculous, nothing ever matches.  I am excited to see if that carries over to when she grows up! 
Her absolute favorite errand to run on our special days is Costco!  She loves trying out all the taste testers and then finishing off her meal with a piece of Costco pizza!  The receipt checkers have gotten to know her now too and they draw her a special picture on the back of our receipts every time we go there! 

When baby comes, Addi and my special days will probably change a bit.  I will always cherish the moments that we shared when it was just me and Addi! 

Enjoy today!

Something New

Hey Friends!  I'm 36 weeks {actually a bit closer to 37 now}.  I tried something new this pregnancy and I'm so happy I did!   A Henna Tatoo!!!  It is beautiful and I really really love it!  My friend, Carly is a true artist!  I am so blessed to have a beautiful design on my belly to welcome my baby boy.
Here it is!  A bitty birdy, hearts, and the word "baby" are my favorite parts! I loved all the fancy glitter too!
Destiny got a flower on her hand and fairy dust in her hair :)
Here are some more pics of my big baby belly!  So far things are still going well!  Baby is head down and seems to be staying that way!  My bags are packed and ready to go and my mom arrives in a couple of weeks.  In the meantime, we have TONS of celebrating to do this next week.  Destiny and Addi both have their birthdays!
 This is the henna as it was drying.  It's shiny from lemon juice + sugar!
Carly creating the beautiful project!
My belly with the girl's hands!  Addi's hand with the heart and Destiny's hand with the flower.

What a special and fun memory that we will have with this.  I am so blessed to have a beautiful piece of art on my big belly!  Thanks, Carly for taking time to create something so special!

Enjoy today!
