The Queen: Michelle

The Queen: Michelle
I am 28 years old. Still a princess but the queen of my family. Spoiled beyond belief. Lucky and truely blessed. A lover. A crafter. A mother. A wife. A friend. This is me.

My King: Junior

My King: Junior
The LOVE of my life! He completes me and balances me out in every way. He's a workaholic. He's loud, blunt, and crazy. He drinks Monsters like his life depends on it. Above all he is the greatest Daddy I could ever ask for, for my children. And he treats me like his Queen (and he calls me that too).

The Model Child: Diego Ray

The Model Child: Diego Ray
9 years old. My only boy. He is the epitome of the perfect child. He is so responsible and independent. Wise beyond his years. He is laughter, he is love, he is compassion, he is simply amazing. He keeps me grounded and reminds me always that I am beautiful. He is a natural born leader and takes care of the household and family better than me!

The Diva: Alayna Danae

The Diva: Alayna Danae
7 years old. She is drama. My fashionista for sure with a style all her own. Sensitive and loving when she wants to be. Thumbsucker. My biggest headache because she is the most like me. She is the only one who can cause me to become uncontrollably angry. She loves to dance. She loves to model. My bookworm and most academic.

The Wild Child: Arielle Marie-Grace

The Wild Child: Arielle Marie-Grace
4 years old. This one is something else. She is pure comedy. Never a dull moment with her crazy antics. She is also the crybaby. She does things her own way. She knows what she wants and isn't afraid to be cute to get it. My Disney loving pal. So girly. Her favorite color is pink. Loves Rapunzel. Will wear a dress every single day. Can't leave the house without a bow in her hair. She refuses.

The Munchkin: Atalie Belle

The Munchkin: Atalie Belle
2 years old. My sweet baby. She loves her Mommy above all else. She is a cuddlebug for sure. The calmest most well behaved baby ever! But she has TONS of energy. She is so small and petite. She loves to sing and dance. She so SO ready for ballet and has yet to even step foot in a class. She loves Minnie Mouse and watching Disney Jr. She is hilarious and talks way too much.

Diego & Arielle's Big Top Circus

Finally the party I've been planning for a while is complete! Diego's 7th Birthday and Arielle's 2nd Birthday.

Although I didn't do everything I had planned because I woke up in a lot of pain. Which continued on during the day. Jr thought I was going to go into labor which I assured him I wouldn't. It was just a lot to do!

But of course it was ALL completely worth it. Diego and Arielle had the time of their lives. Diego had all his friends from school come and Arielle finally kinda got the concept of what was going on. She loved the jumper, she loved the cupcakes, and she loved opening her presents.

So I went with a circus/carnival theme. Primary colors. I loved it. And with lots of help I was able to make and put together all my ideas.

And I even made caramel apples... yes I tend to go overboard with the DIY stuff.

I also had carnival games made but decided not to do them after all because I was just too dang exhausted by the time our guests arrived that I just relied on the jumper to keep the kids entertained. And it did. They didn't miss a thing.

Arielle looked completely adorable in the outfit I put together for her and the tutu I made. My friend Tabitha made her the matching bow and it was just perfect for her outfit!

The hit of the party and my favorite part was the photobooth I made. Really simple but oh so cute! Children and Adults all got to take pictures and I am going to print them out for them. I may do this more often for other parties.

Birthday Boy Diego (it was his actual birthday)

Tracy & I

Cake time! As always my ideas are brought to life by the wonderful talents of Linda! I told her I wanted cupcakes that looked like popcorn.I printed the cupcake wrappers to look like popcorn tubs, as well as a few in the patterns I used for the party, and she made them perfectly how I envisioned them. She's completely awesome. None of my ideas are too hard for her!

The kids got TONS of cool gifts. Mostly clothes and as a Mom this is the best thing for me! And 5 pairs of shoes each! Another thing I love. And each one got like 3-4 toys. Not bad! I know they prefer them but I sure don't! We bought Arielle a $10 baby doll stroller and it turned out to be the best money we've ever spent! To say she LOVED it is an understatement.

And Diego was happy when Grandpa wheeled out his gift for him...

And by the end of the night I felt like Lily...
