Bowling party goodness

Allison showing my cousn Deitrich something of utmost importance.

My aunt Glrrr decorating Allison's cake before the party.

When I asked Jer if he had snuck any, he said, "Nope."

When my grandma asked which color flower Alli wanted to
eat first, she said, "Blue. No pink. No yellow. No purple ..."

Playing a game at the bowling alley before guests arrived.

All set up and ready to party!


Is it my turn yet?

Allison won her game, but only because
I got her three spares in a row.

Playing with the hand dryer.


The Cake in all of its awesome Wubbzy glory.

Realizing she's the center of attention.

A frosting flower and a forkful of cake.

That kitty makes a crying sound, so Allison always announces it's sad.

Her four Wubbzy plush dolls from us.

Present C-R-A-Z-Y.

Because a pile of gifts weren't enough.
She wanted to be a Big Winner, too.

Nicholas gave bunny ears in every photo he was in.

Back at home in assembly mode.

Which one isn't stuffed?

The end of the night in jammies, three skirts, Elmo slippers and
butterfly wings surrounded by new toys while watching Ni How Kai Lan.

What a lucky girl she is! She will be able to "remember" all of this though your words and photographs. I'm a sucker for tradition, like the one of all three of you together, best! (Although there are some priceless gems in there as well!)

I just finished reading your letter and then looking through these photos. It was really, really beautiful. I have been following your blog for years and years now and I want to thank you for being honest and talking about the little things. It makes me appreciate them more. So I'm looking forward of watching Alison grow for another year and hearing about all of her wonderful changes. It's weird to think of how much I've changed. Heck, I'm graduating from college in May. Thanks for sharing your life with us.

So many awesome photos of a great birthday party! ;o) I love the family photo of course. You guys really look great. That photo of Allison and Jerry playing in the arcade is cute. The photo of Allison & the girls piled on that arcade game seat, with Nicholas alongside is beyond adorable! Sweet! I love how Allison's ensemble in the last photo. Hehe. =P LOL at that photo of Allison embarassed as everyone sang "Happy Birthday" to her! =D

Aunt Glrrr did a great job on the cake, by the way! ;D

It's so amazing to see how your baby girl has grown over the years! The party looked like tons of fun for her. I can't believe how BIG she is now! You're a great mommy!
