I turned 32 on Sept. 29th!!!
My bday celebration began on Sunday and included breakfast at LeMadeleine's, where Lucia and Isabella had their first taste of coffee. Lucia wanted seconds but not Isabella! In fact, she blocked her mouth with our wooden table weight (J for Jimenez, of course!). By far one of the highlights of my day, it was hilarious!!
A day at the Zoo (putting our membership to work),
a bouquet of flowers from the men in my life (brother Henry and husband Harold),
a dinner date at Byblos and the most delicious cake EVER!!! Doesn't it look amazing? Have to admit that Harold and I ate half of it all by ourselves, all the girls really did was lick the icing. We just used forks, no plates or napkins needed!
Isabella turns F-O-U-R!!!!
Seriously, where did the time go? Feels like yesterday was her first bday at our temp-home in Dallas thanks to Katrina. :( The big day included a make-your-own-pizza dinner, cupcakes and a Leapster. Isabella was in heaven. We sang Happy Birthday but did NOT eat the cupcakes til we got back from dinner. At the time, sounded like a good idea but now thinking back on it maybe it was a lil cruel, huh? Oops! :)
Birthday x 2!
We had a joint party for the girls this year and it will be hard not to keep this tradition going even if I can already picture the future fights. Isabella's bday party was a lil late and Lucia's a lil early but no one cared. We had a Dalmation party at Gymrompers and I even made the cake (thanks, Amie!). Check out the chip bowls. How cute is that? My Uncle Bill thought it was subconsciously keeping people from eating and decided to kept an eye on what bowl was eaten out of the most. I think the red one won. haha.
Circus under the Big Top
The circus came in town too so of course we had to attend. I got to meet a clown from Peru (I guess I'm not the only one in the area! haha), we had cotton candy and thought of Aunt Carmen - she LOVES the stuff! Isabella and Lucia were a lil scared by the loud noises so we didn't even think of pushing the elephant ride. Which worked out great since it was $8 a ride!! Those darn clowns! Grrrr. I really wanted to climb on. Maybe next time since I'm pretty sure I could have convinced Lucia to come along. :)
