Family Birthday Fun!

With Sierra’s birthday party on Saturday, we had to plan time for family fun! Using our Christmas tree as a birthday tree, we placed all our family gifts for Sierra under it and had her open them one by one!


Audrey gave Sierra roller skates and dilly string! Grand-dad gave her a purring kitty cat, Gigi gave her a science kit and magic eightball. And, in addition to the party and trampoline, Daddy made sure to find lots of science and fun brain games for Sierra like, Exploding Kittens, and Frank Einstein.

appy Birthday #9 Sierra! We love you!

Sierra’s 9th Birthday!

On Saturday, we planned a fabulous Paris themed birthday party for Sierra with swimming and bouncing! She helped with all the planning and helped make decisions on the food.

We got a bounce house and warmed the pool so it would be extra special. Many of her friends joined the party including, Evelyn, Sophie, Hannah, Abbey, Hadley, Riliegh, Donnivan, and Gavin.

We made cake pops, bounced in the bounce house, went rollerskating and scootering down the street, swam in the pool and ate lots of delicious food! It was a highly energetic and fun day!

Painting Party

Just before Thanksgiving, a few friends wandered over to say hello! Feeling crrative, we pulled out the canvases, paints and bruahes and had a painting party on our porch! What a great way to spend the morning!

Ice Skating in Florida!

Today, we ventured out to downtown Tampa with the girls and Atlas. As soon as we arrived, everyone wanted tobpet the puppy. While Victor dealt with the crowds, Sierra, Audrey and I went ice skating.

It was a crazy day on the ice with slSierra zipping all around us and Audrey right by my side! The girls couldn't believe they were ice skating outside in the 80 degree Florida sun!

We shopped around then ate at a cute downtown bistro! Happy Sunday to all!

Road trip to the Ice Skating Rink...

Today we are going ice skating! For the past 5 years, we've lived in cooler climates and have made it a tradition to go outdoor ice skating after Thanksgiving! Sierra didn't believe it was possible to skate outdoors in Florida, but we are going to prove her wrong and have a ton of fun in the process!

Bacon!

This morning for breakfast we ate eggs, toast and bacon. But, we couldnt eat all the bacon, so rather than have it go to waste, we treated Atlas to a treat. He had no idea what it was, but he loved it. The girls split a slice with him and utvwas gone in seconds!

Lemonade for Sale!

Instead of spending money on Black Friday, the girls are making money selling Christmas Lemonade & cookies!

Sierra woke up this morning wanting to have a lemonade stand, so she rallied her friends. They all contfibuted in the effort. Evelyn & Hannah made the chalkboard sign. Sierra picked the location and named the lemonade after Atlas Audrey brought the cookies & granola bars. They all pitched in to make the lemonade, and Sophie decorated our table wuth leaves and pretty pictures.

They decided on setting up their stand on the corner of our street, Bell Creek, and Waterford Run so they would have more traffic. Then they all drew Christmas scenes all over the street to attract people. We played Christmas music and the girls danced to attract visitors.

it was a huge success! After about 2 hours, they earned $25 total snd split the money between the 5 of them! Way to go girls & thanks to all the neighbors for stopping by!
