This morning all the little cousins gathered at CoCo's house to get their picture taken together. This is the 3rd year we have gathered the little ones for a picture to give to Mim & Pop at Christmas. The first 2 years we met at Picture People or Portrait Innovations for "the" picture. This year we decided to try on our own. All the kiddies wore jeans and white turtlenecks, and were barefoot. Since CoCo is the only family member I know that reads this blog, I'll share my favorite photo (taken with my iPhone). Most of the pictures were taken with a pretty fancy camera, but we haven't had a chance to review them yet.
Once we were done with the cousin photos, Mr. O took Tank and Baby Girl KK for a fun day of their own. I took Banana for a "Mommy & Me" day. We went to lunch at Santini's; I had my regular grilled chicken club, & Banana had pizza. From there, we went to a birthday party for one of the girls in her pre-K class. The highlight of this party was the professional face painting and balloon figures. Banana chose a butterfly for her face painting, and a princess wand as her balloon. Looks pretty good, don't you think???
I love that monogrammed sweater. CoCo gifted those monogrammed sweaters for all the cousins two years ago. It looks like I need to order the next size up for my kiddies. We're always complimented when the kids wear those sweaters.
This face-painter was AMAZING!!! Check this little chick out...her eyes are closed. Actually, after I cropped the pic, it looks scary!!!
If KK still wants a Princess in the Castle party for her birthday (6 months from now), I may just hire this painter for a Princess in the Castle and Pirate party. Tank and Master B would be too disappointed if they weren't invited.
