Noelle's 9th Birthday/Barraclough Family Christmas Party

Noelle turned 9 on the 20th (have I ever told you how crazy this week is at my house?!?). The Barraclough family had their party on her birthday this year, so she got to share her birthday. She got tons of presents! She may have been a little excited as you can see!

Jana, knowing of her ballet obession, made her a tutu.

Zoey and Lucy gave her Hannah Montana undies and bras. How embarrassing!

Grandma Shirley and Grandpa Don know exactly what they want! Cash!

Mya got a medical kit and a tool kit (and apparently some chocolate cake). I told you Grandma Shirley and Grandpa Don know exactly what they want! Does she look happy or what!

My mom might not be as proud of my picture taking at this party. I'm still getting the hang of it. Be patient. I was a little shaken. On our way there we barely (and by barely I mean miraculously) missed being involved in the 31 car pile-up in Willard that afternoon. Ryan has been preparing for that moment his whole life! It was like a scene from Mario Kart. We were sliding on and off the road, dodging cars left and right, never once stopping. If I hadn't been there myself I wouldn't have believed it. I think my mom prayed for us before we left. It's the only explaination I can come up with.

Wow! I must have kissed up sufficiently that day because Mya is on my lap!!

Plus, thanks for leaving out the kick ass gift I got her for her birthday. Hey, since I'm empty and child-less I have to spend my money on someone. Wait until you see what Mya gets from us. Can you say cowboy boots at church?

Char said...

Man that part was some good times.

Glad you didn't die on the way there.

So glad you guys didn't die! =) Who else would babysit for us while we went to Cancun?! haha, no I'm kidding but that's a terrible joke. =P That tutu is so flippin cute! Can I pay her to make a couple of tutu's for my girls? They started ballet last week.

Love the new posts! So funny. And Amen to December being retarded crazy! Brady's b-day is the 19th, Tessa's is the 27th...ask Ryan if there's any pills to just prevent Christmas babies?!
