Playing Catch up Part 3

In January the family got to go see NUCLEAR COWBOYZ at the American Airlines Center. It was a fun show with pro-motocross athletes performing. The music was great although the dancers were kinda corny. But the tricks were pretty awesome. We'd watched motocross on TV, but seeing ATVs and motorcycles flip like that in real life was crazy!!! We had a really great time as a family. :)

January 25th was Livie's 5th birthday. I still cannot believe my baby girl is 5. This was the 1st time she had a "real" birthday party with friends. She had a "princess party" planned last year, but that's when Alec got sick, sick, sick with mono and strep.  So she's been talking about her "big birthday party" literally for a year. So, she finally had her party. She invited 16 people and I think at least 12 were there.  She wanted a "Tangled" party based on Disney's new Rapunzel movie.  I had Isabel, my sister, my mom and a friend's exchange student "daughter" do hair and nails of the little princesses. They decorated crowns, played "Pin the Nose on Flynn Rider" and colored pics. It went amazingly well. I think everyone had a really fun time. It was fun decorating. We had a long "braid" of streamers coming up the stairs and I even had a long, golden braid hanging out the front window of the house so people would know they were at the right place. :) Livie loved it all and still tells me she "loved her party." YAY!!
