Happy Birthday Nini and Cici!

Waiting, to blow out their birthday candles while we sing to them!

I can't stop thinking about two fantastic little ladies that graced my life eight years and four months ago.  They were the sweetest babes I had ever seen, they were Ninia and Cici.  We had a pre-milestone birthday this year.  That year that comes right before a child's age becomes a double digit.  Thankfully, my 9-year old sweethearts still have one more year before the tenth birthday. 


Their 9th birthday lasted the weekend!  We had their friend party, a friend who had a birthday party, and our family party - all in three days.  They had a wonderful time at each event and are enjoying their each one of their birthday gifts.  Their favorites included the outfit that Cici has on -the scarf and headband!  A friend gave this to her and she just loves - so much so, she won't let me borrow that scarf!  Nini has been enjoying a couple lego kits she got and her very own cans of sliced olives! 

We also purchased a the new credit card monoply game.  Who has this?  You'll never go back to the "old" way of dealing out the money and sorting it!  I would have played monopoly a lot more if I had this version as a kid.


As some point during our family party, Cici opened one of those cards with a recorded song.  It was of Ariel's, Part of your World song from  Little Mermaid.   Hawk was so entranced by the music (he and Mr. T watch this all the time - it's their favorite) that he just stood their - like the photo- with his little hand on Cici's shoulder staring at the card.  It was a good five minute episode of pure cuteness!  
  
Treat and trinkets bag for party.


The girl's friend party was at a local movie theatre where they and six of their friends got to see  A Dolphin's Tail.  They also had cupcakes and pizza in the theatres movie room afterwards.  I personally, could not handle an at home party this year, and I am grateful for this option we had.  As a parting gift, I put together these bags with some fun candy and trinkets in it. 

Have you seen a Dophin's Tail?
Have you played the new monopoly?
Do you have like birthday parties away from home?

9? How did that happen?
I love the dolphin gift bags, such a clever idea!
I have done the whole b-day party at home and let me tell you, it is NOT any cheaper and a whole lot messier. I think the party room was a brilliant idea!

Happy Birthday girls Nini, Cici, and to you Michelle! This is also a HUGE celebration for you and your hubby; the anniversary of becoming parents. Now small thing!
