Sydnee's Birthday PARTIES!

Well, Miss Sydnee has had quite the birthday festivities this year!  Last weekend we had a pool party with some friends on Saturday, and a family birthday party on Sunday for Sydnee and Papa-who's birthdays are just a day apart! We so wanted Syders to be born on July 15th (papa's bday), but she was 3 hours late! Born at 3 in the morning--she sure knows how to make an entrance!  :)  She had lots of fun swimming, opening presents, and eating cake!  Thankfully, her pool party went well--it wasn't too hot, there was lots of shade at the pool, and the cake made it to the party in one piece!  I made her a pool/beach cake this year.  It turned out alright!  The center part was blue jello made to look like water! The "sand" on the side is crushed up graham crackers, and we added swimming polly pockets for fun!  For the family party, I made her a pink butterfly cake! THEN- on her real birthday yesterday, we went to 2 movies....the first one was the free summer movie (BEE MOVIE), the 2nd movie we waited until matt could go with us and we saw Ice Age 3 in 3D!  Quite fun!  Weird to have to wear the glasses the whole time though.  We were supposed to go out to dinner after the movie, but we had all eaten too much popcorn and didn't want to eat! So we went home and had YET ANOTHER cake!  A smily face sun courtesy of Target.  I'm not typically a fan of store bought confections (with COSTCO being the exception!) but this cake was pretty good!!  There's still some in the fridge that's calling my name!! All in all, I think she had a pretty decent birthday, and got lots of great presents from lots of great people.  Thanks for all the calls and well wishes!  Love ya!

Birthday night- getting ready to sing!

MONEY! She's gotten wise to the fact now that cards= money or gift cards! :)

Can u tell that we usually get to the movie early and have lots of time to kill--hence all the theater pics?!?

Ok, several things:

1.) I'm LOVING the picture of Sydnee with the money. Love it.
2.) I'll be in San Antonio July 26-Aug 4. I so hope I'll be able to see you. It's been too long.
3.) Yes, very weird summer of '01. I totally laughed last night when George played Check Yes or No...remember Ned thinking he was saying Jack A** in Love? HA!
