Climbing that hill.........almost to the top!!!

So the hill I am referring to is the one that you fall "over" ..... as in "over the hill"!!! I know, I know start playing your tiny violins for me....I turned 35 today. THIRTY! FIVE! I remember the time when I thought the thirties were so ollldddddddddd. Well, I have lived to tell you that they are NOT!!! Being in your 30's is NOT old!!! My day started off dreary outside with the inside holding two grumpy babies, one grumpy husband and one unexpected, self invited, extended stay guest..........but it did turn around. The babies snapped out of their funk with a little sun, some milk and a nap and the husband did the same minus the nap and milk.....the guest........well we are just dealing with that one. He did buy steaks for dinner though and is sweeping my kitchen floor as we speak here.......or should I say as I speak.......or type. But, I digress!!!
We had some fun, ate some yummy food and cheesecake.......had a glass or two and a half of awesome wine.........and I have the pictures to prove it!!!
Here is the cake....awesome fresh fruit topped cheesecake......can I just say ....as Ella would........YUMMY!!!

Now this picture will again put me as a front runner for the mommy of the year award....Yes, my child is dipping her toothbrush into her cheesecake and yes she brushed her teeth with it and yes I laughed as she did this!!! But never fear....we did a good old fashioned "real" tooth brushing sans cheesecake later. But looking over and seeing her do this .........well, that's funny stuff!!!

Here is Edie very impatiently waiting for her slice of heaven.........

We played with play doh and coloring books for the first time today...and it was sooooooooooo fun people!!! Here is Ella Grace's first creation....I did the hair!!!

Edie preferred the play doh...once she figured out it wasn't something to eat...here is her first creation!!!!

Ella gets serious about her coloring ... she is wondering what is going on between Edie and Daddy that is causing such a commotion interrupting her coloring....

Not sure what is happening here.........

Edie wondering what daddy is making with his play doh........

Edie is quite proud of her play doh figure......

Ella liked the play doh......

Ella watching Edie color.........stealing her ideas!!!

Ella and then Edie coloring.......


Edie eats colors.........that's how she rolls!!!

My friend Letha and her awesome boyfriend Chad were here this weekend from Louisiana......we had some fun!!! I managed to get NOT ONE single picture of either one of them.......NICE!!! I did get a couple of the sweeties though.....of course!!
Here is Edie wondering what Auntie Letha brought her.......

We headed to a couple of our favorite wineries.........both girls were on a mission as you can see.........


Ella decided to take a load off.......

Our designated driver.........I kid, I kid......I was the designated driver....they did the wine tasting and I did the baby chasing.......

Love the pictures! Playdoh is the best for keeping kids entertained and it won't hurt them if they do eat it. Just ask Finn!

Happy Birthday to you ;)
That cheesecake looks just fabulous, I think I would have dipped my own toothbrush in it if given the chance.

Happy belated Birthday!!! I'm a little behind on my blog reading so I'm just now seeing this. Glad you had a good birthday and thanks for posting that picture of your cheesecake...now I'm going to crave it for at least a week.
