The party!

Today was Sam and Anaïs' birthday party. We had a pink french poodle theme party at the park. Here are the invitations: The weather was nice, a little windy and not too hot. I think the party was a success, we are so lucky to have all our friends and family who love our two girls!
Here is Anaïs enjoying the party with Nana and Papi.
We had pizza and cake, I kept the menu very simple! lol
Sam was very proud to wear her special dress that my sister sent her from France, it is so cute!

I had a cake made for the party. It was SO good! I think it turned out really cute too.

Everybody was singing "happy birthday" for the girls on this picture. At this point they were ready to eat some cake!

Here is Anaïs eating cake for the first time, looks like she loved it!

Thank you so much to everyone who came to celebrate our girls' birthday with us!

Happy birthday Sam!!

Well...Sam turned 5 today!! I can't believe my baby is already 5 years old!!
Here is the birthday girl this morning on our way to school. After school, we met at Michelle's house for swimming lesson for all the kids. I swear I have THE BEST friends I could ever asked for. Look at what they had for Sam:
We have the big birthday party for both Sam and Anaïs this saturday, it should be fun!

After swimming lesson, we went to Chuck E Cheese for dinner then came home for presents and cupcakes.

Look at that face...she was so excited when she opened this present: she finally got her very first Hannah Montana CD!! She has been asking for Hannah Montana stuff for months and I kept telling her that she was too young and that MAYBE when she turns 5 we could talk about it again. This look of joy is just priceless.

Sam, I love you more than you will ever know. You are such a beautiful girl, inside and out. I love that you always think of others and that you are so accepting of other people's differences. You make me laugh every single day and I am so lucky to be your mom. I am so proud of you! Happy birthday!

Je t'aime ma belle, joyeux anniversaire.

You think I'm kidding??

When I say that Anaïs' nose is always congested...well check this out! LOL

It's so bad that she always blows bubbles with her snot, lovely huh? lol
I sure hope that taking her tonsils and adenoids out will help a little with the congestion.

The Louvre museum right here in Vegas!!

At school, Sam is in a special program called "Global Friends". They study cultures from around the world. This month they have been learning about France, which of course Sam LOVES! They have been working on a big project: recreating the famous Louvre museum in Paris. They displayed all their artwork in the school's lobby for all the parents to look at.
It was so cute, the kids went around giving out a brochure about their artwork, cheese, crackers and lemonade. They were very proud of their work.

Here is my little artist showing me one of her pieces.
Anaïs enjoyed it too...especially the cheese! lol

Great job Sam, I am so proud of you!!

Mother's Day Tea Party!

Yesterday, I went to the Mother's Day Tea Party at Sam's school. The kids had been getting ready for it for quite a while. It was very cute...when we got there each kid guided their mom to a chair and they sat us down and gave us cookies and tea. They made us the cutest little cards and vases with fresh flowers in them.

Check out the hat Sam made me!!! It is made out of paper and she spray painted it...too cute!
They sang some cute songs for the moms, here are the videos. Just pause the music at the bottom of the page before you view the videos.

There is nothing better than Mother's Day. Thank you so much Sam for all the efforts you put in for this special day, I will always cherish these precious moments that we share together!

I got an invitation...

to a VERY VERY special event. I am so excited and I feel so special.

Sam gave me an invitation to a Tea for two on Friday morning in her classroom. The invitation is the cutest thing I have ever seen. There is a little poem in it.
Thank you Sam! I can't wait until Friday to have tea with you. :)
Pictures of the Tea Party to follow... of course :)
