TO Cambry LOVE Annie Mom Dad and Heidi.
I see a Princess shining in your eyes darling girl!!!!
It's been a weekend full of celebrating for this little one. Being the middle child sometimes we feel that Cambry gets left out because she's not demanding and goes with the flow so we decided to throw her a "My Little Pony-Princess Party!" She had lots of fun little friends from the neighborhood over.
Most of them came dressed as Pretty Princess's but Annie insisted on being the Wicked Witch and couldn't wait to scare all the little Princesses!
We tried to do lots of fun activities like make Pony Puppets and play organized games, but in the end we realized that they all just wanted to play with each other and eat their treats and cupcakes. Rounding up a bunch of little girls can be quite the chore!!! However, they all did enjoy balloon parachuting and loved climbing under it.

The "new" loft. The rough floor size is now ~10.5ftx~12.5ft and will serve one primary purpose... family entertainment and relaxing.
The room feels larger than the dimensions mentioned above. The actual open space area is ~15ftx~14ft because of the railing and the setback where the hall and TV is.
The bedroom is not quite finished yet. The new wall, door and trim still need paint. The bedroom is smaller than the other three bedrooms by at least 15sq. ft. It is ~9.5ftx~12.5ft.
