Sorry I've been gone for so long. This time of year is just so busy for me with the holidays, my etsy blowing up with people buying gifts for their loved ones, and CLEMENTINE'S BIRTHDAY!
I can't believe that my tiny newborn baby girl is FOUR already!
Part of me is clinging to her adorable innocence and not wanting her to grow up any more, but the other part of me is blown away by how she keeps getting more amazing every day and is excited to watch her grow into the incredible little person she is meant to be. I'm just so proud of her.

|Rapunzel braid bubbles|
|Rapunzel's tower and the crazy tutu I made|
|of course I had to do Rapunzel theme nails too!|
|for games we made Pascal party blowers and paper ears on bendy straws that you had to knock over|

|we had a Flynn Rider piñata that had to be broken open with a frying pan|
|it took a comically long time to break this thing open|
|and a coloring section since art was such a big part of Rapunzel' life in the tower|
|me and Julie being adults|
|this card sang "I see the light" and I think it was Clem's favorite prezzie|
|what's it gonna be?|

|so proud of my baby|
|"No time for pictures, mom! I gotta eat this cake!"|
|our little family|
|they're growing up so fast!|
|our family all together (minus Uncle Tom, Aunt Kiki, Uncle Sean, and Boz's Mom)|
|I didn't have time to make a photobooth this year (even tho I had so many amazing ideas for it! so sad.) so we just stuffed everyone into the tower for pictures. It's WAY smaller in that thing than it looks.|
|"Olive pizza!? MY FAVORITE!"|
I'm so happy that my baby had an amazing birthday even though none of her little friends were able to make it this year (honestly I think she likes having all of the adults to herself and I was more upset about everyone being sick / out of town than she was).
From her singing card: "That laugh of yours, your sparkly style, the way you light up when you smile, the sweet enchanting things you do -- Today, we're celebrating YOU!"
Happy birthday, baby girl! I love you forever and always, more than ice cream and unicorns.
