seems like a great night for a "party"...

mom found these adorable "dress up" dresses for super cheap the other day...and as soon as she gave them to the girls...their inner "martha" was inspired!!!!! whenever they are planning an event in the playroom...jeffrey and i are not allowed to go in while the preparations are being made! always scares me a little because i am not ever sure what kind of food they are using!!!

on this evening...we were going to be served dessert! (well...dessert with a side of "peppered cheese" :) )
ella set the table...complete with place cards...for each family member!
along with a beautiful centerpiece...plucked from the front yard!
my sweet girls that know i'm a coke gal...even had some cold bottles at my place! precious little people!
at one point before the party started, this is what i found ava doing...stealing the "peppered cheese"! what a party foul...and look at her outfit...she sure knows how to dress up for an occasion!!!
my two precious party planners...they truly do love each other!

here is what ella chose to prepare...a fondue bar of sorts!
we had strawberries and raspberry bits for dipping!!!! (in melted hershey kisses) ;)
pretzel sticks and strawberry gummies...can't you just imagine the flavor explosion in your mouth?!?!? HA!
one thing's for sure...there was at least ONE family member that thoroughly enjoyed herself...which is exactly why we have nicknamed her the "family goat"!!!!!!! God love her!
she is truly a bottomless pit...that travels straight to her adorably precious bottom!!!!!!!!!!!!
she is a sight for sore eyes...cannot wait to see the things this little one will do...she's one in a million for sure! just look at that exuberance!

then came time for "family foto booth"! oh. my. word.

look at this gem! straight from "deliverance"...which caused the following reaction from me...
...and ella!!!!
we just couldn't stop laughing!!!!!!

i'm so proud of my daughters...all three of them. i'm so thankful that we can have fun as a family...and that we truly enjoy each other's company!

it is times like these that i just sit back and soak it all in...times like these that i realize what precious little souls we have the privilege of raising...times like these that i realize there won't always be "times like these".

thanks, girls for being the best little party planners around!
