SaraGrace's Birthday Pics

I can't believe it's been a week since I last posted. Whew...busy week. Miss SaraGrace had a birthday that she claimed was, 'the best birthday ever.' Bless her heart--she says that every year. Needless to say, it's really fun to celebrate with her!

Talking to both sets of Grandparents on the phone

'Let them eat cake!'

Funny faces for the camera

Some sweet sister love

Daddy lights the candles for her

Smiling for Mama

Making a wish

OK, I realize that my cakes are never going to be on Cake Boss.
Don't judge.

Whole lotta sista love going on

SaraGrace shows off her new princess fingernails
(thank goodness for the dollar section at Target!)

Jake just HAD to try them...oh yes, he did. He would not be dissuaded. Thankfully, $1 fingernails don't stay on for long.

Admiring those beautiful nails

Trying out her new princess carriage

"The Best Birthday Ever!"

A few days later, she woke up sick in the middle of the night. (Why don't kids get sick during the day?) I digress...

I settled her down in our room with a bucket 'just in case,' and within 20 minutes, I heard her getting sick. I rushed to help her and had to suppress the smiles as she talked to me between each heave.

"I'm scared."
"I don't like this."
"Mom, when you were a little girl did you throw up?"
(Oh boy...we do NOT want to go there. My throwing up episodes are legendary.)
"You did? How many times?"

Oh my word, it was so funny! I've held buckets for many a kid but I have never had them talk to me like that.

But then, SaraGrace has never been just like any other kid.

Such beautiful birthday pictures. Those nails are lovely and I'm glad Jake also enjoyed them...hee hee. I'm sorry that she ended up being sick. I hope that the germ fairy leaves the rest of your kiddos alone. Hugs!!

Oh my, yes...SaraGrace is most definitely Lucy's sister, someway - somehow.

The barfing conversation is hilarious...I can't say that I've ever heard of anyone willing to chat during such a disgusting moment. Too funny.

What a beautiful post! I was thinking how nice and yummy the cake looked! I hope Sarah Grace is feeling better now. Sometimes my little ones get sick when they are very excited...and yes, it happens in the middle of the night! You have such an amazing family! Your story absolutely warms my heart with deep joy and gratitude for all of you:)

I can count on one hand how many times I've thrown up in my lifetime so I'd like to hear about your legendary throw-up legacy! :) You've already done potty posts so it's not too much of a stretch ya know!

Glad you're back!

Sure, they’re fun to play with and are a great conversation starter, but what is it about them that’s so

fascinating, or for some, not fascinating? Students at Monte Vista either love them or hate them. bakugan toys.
