Allie had a great birthday party at the house with 10 of her preschool friends. Of course it rained so the 'outdoor' party quickly turned into an 'inside party' which resulted in organized chaos. The kids spent about 15 minutes making foam butterflies and the other hour and 45 minutes running around the house, busting the pinata, playing and running around the house some more. Luckily Gigi & Poppy were there to babysit Alexis upstairs to keep her nice and safe from the rowdy big kids. Hunter did surprisingly well and played nicely with Allie's friends. Allie was SO excited for her friends to come to her house and play.

Less Than 1 Month...

The countdown is on! Less than 1 month until we are headed to Disney World!! Allie and Hunter have no idea about the surprise vacation. We are going to tell them exactly one week before we go. This way they will have some time to process everything, get excited, talk about it and help pack some toys for the long road trip! We are going to video tape their reactions--Hunter probably won't understand until we say we are going to see Mickey, Donald, Goofy, etc.
