Dorothy's 4th Birthday Party

Dotty turned 4 a couple weeks ago and as such we had her first official birthday party. It was just her and a few friends but she had fun. We (really meaning Suzi) had a "Spa Party" where the girls got avocado facials, got a pedicure and manicure including very girlish paint. I'm not sure if the 4 year old girls really got it all, but at the end of the day they had fun.
Suzi even had special snacks, enough to feed an army, of tea sandwiches, crackers with apple and peanut butter, home-made strawberry lemonade etc.

I'm having fun..... really I am

Pinewood Derby

Henry participated (and really dominated) in his 2nd pinewood derby this past week. There were 19 cars racing and they had a series of 17 races where everyone got to race every other car on different tracks. Henry's car finished first in all the races except one where he thought it would be fun to race his car backwards! I forgot to take the camera so we didn't get shots of his excited antics during the races.

He really was much happier than this forced smile make him appear - he just loves to pose for pictures this way.
