Playing catch up

First and foremost. I would like to wish my Dad a Happy Birthday! And so would Dahlia...

Ok so "Hi my name is Meredith and I'm an addict" My drug of choice/guilty pleasure; Pixie Hollow on

Dahlia likes to watch the fairies so yesterday on our walk we collected some leaves and with the help of Jody's glue gun (thanks) I made Dahlia her very own Fairy.

The wings are made of tissue paper died with water and instant coffee that I then put in the oven on broil to dry. "Paper in the oven, Meredith?" I know. I kept the door open and watched it the whole time. It wasn't until I was taking the pizza pan out of the oven that I grazed the tissue paper against the heating element and set fire to my hard work. HAHAHA . I was able to run it under some water and save enough paper for what I needed. Dahlia did get her dolly back and she loves it. And it will all fall off eventually and nothing was glued to the doll.

Ok, now we are working backwards. Friday was both my fathers and Barry's father's birthday. Neat, I know. We went to Barry's dad's for dinner and cake. So here are some kiddie cake face pictures.

He got it up his nose. There was so much in his lap that we broke out the vacuum.

Last week we had another nice visit from Nana and Bumpa. They brought Gregory his Birthday present early. Dahlia was only two happy to help him open it. She even offered to store the bulky trucks in her room for him. She's so nice.

We also took Dahlia and her bike to the park a while back. We met up with Emily and Russ. Dahlia hasn't quite gotten the hang of the pedals yet, so there wasn't a lot of riding going on.

Then she passed out on the swings so we took her home.

Also recently a local church sponsored a block party for our neighborhood. Most of the games were more geared towards bigger kids, but she did get her face painted. I told the woman "maybe just a heart on her cheek" She saw Dahlia's Dora sunglasses and got inspired. Which is fine, but I was very offended that she made her little Hispanic face pink. I wanted to slap that church lady and ask her if she prayed to a picture of a white Jesus. Sorry. We live in a very diverse neighborhood. And Dora is a role model to a lot of little girls, especially Spanish speaking ones. I felt like she was painting a little white Dora for my little white Dahlia.

Gregory sat by and sucked on a leaf, but I could tell he was upset too.

Also she had my daughter in a vice grip.

And lastly, look how cute my lil puddin is wit his wittle cup...awwwe
