This week since Sheasus turned 2 we enrolled her in an Intro Dance class
She will go once a week with her big sister.
For the past 9 months she's been watching her big sister on the TV monitors at that same class and when she finally hit 2 there was no doubt that she'd be able to join her and do fabulous in the class. The instructor and her helper were very happy to see her actually join the class instead of hang out in the waiting room.
With the help of her Awesome big sister she did great and followed along perfectly. It was quite impressive considering she is the youngest in her class. Most newbies just stand there watching the others where as Sheasus acted like she was a seasoned pro! WAY TO GO Sheasus!
What a fun filled busy birthday weekend! Instead of going out of town we opted to fill the weekend with busy activities. Lots of last minute things, but crazy fun for us! We started off at Build-A-Bear....more like Build-A-Puppy with my girls. Their first time there. Huge Hit...now I understand the hype.
Next Stop...Studio Movie Grill in Scottsdale. It was Sheasus's first time at the movie theatre and she did great. We saw Beauty and the Beast in 3D. Best part of the movie was the Tangled short clip in the beginning...of course we still enjoyed the Movie itself.
Afterwards we headed to dinner at Pita Jungle. A favorite for our family of four. Then headed home to a wonderful treat. One of Brett's employees also has a cupcake company and she made Alexis her birthday cupcakes. A combo of oreo cupcakes and Cotton candy. YUMMY!
Check her website when you can...she also has a blog. Lindsey was a contestant on the TV show Cupcake Wars and I can see why...so freaking good!
We sang (even though it was 2 days early) Happy Birthday to Miss Sheasus....
It was a complete first full day.
On Sunday we got up early and took the girls to Encanto Park. Small, older, but still cute amusement park fit for our little girls. It's no Disneyland, but the girls had a blast. Afterwards we tooled around Phoenix, furniture shopped, lunch at RA, Toys R Us pit stop, shopping at San Tan Village, and then dinner with Friends at a Teppanyaki grill. Again, another FULL day that didn't bring us home til after 9. The girls were tired, but still amped up for the big day on Monday.
Alexis was greeted on her birthday with what every 2 year old child loves....balloons, balloons, balloons. Sheasus then opened her birthday presents....There were lots, and lots of pictures to go with, but here are the highlights... She's into dress-up, Dora, Disney Princesses, coloring, Dance, and make-up (yes I know she's only 2!) and she got a combination of all that.
Quickly after the gift opening and sprinkled chocolate chip pancakes for breakfast it was back to what else, but the Balloons!
That afternoon we met up with a few friends for an impromptu, last minute celebration at Freestone Park in Gilbert. (This is why I love our friends....so easy going and able to do last minute things with us!) We rounded off the afternoon with a treat at Oreganos.... The birthday girl was a tad bit exhausted and missed out on the treat, but I'm pretty sure she didn't notice.
I feel like we need a true vacation after our crazy FULL but fun weekend. Brett and I both enjoy spoiling the girls especially on her birthday. She was born at 1053 at night so I made sure to stay up til then so I can sneak into her room, pull her out of bed and cuddle my itty bitty the moment she turned 2. GOSH I JUST LOVE HER!
