Wednesday, April 18 - Brenna's Gotcha Day

O.k. - I'm going to start with a picture from earlier this week before we get into the family gotcha day pics. Brenna and I fell in love with these glitter stickers at Hobby Lobby (by the way, the glitter and glue items are not a cool, these stickers you get to pick where the glitter and rhinestones go - and they look pretty cool (and a 5 year old can help with them)). She wore a couple different ones to school last week (they don't stay on the best, but sometimes that is better with the changing mind of my child). The one above she wore on Monday (we did the glue and glitter on Tuesday and she wanted it off right away - bummer!).

Brenna's Ice Cream Barbie Cake - she loved it. We asked her if she wanted an ice cream cake for her birthday and she said absolutely - then she could have another Barbie picture (a different one of course :-) Below - these are our annual gotcha day family pictures. I was just going to do these with my camera, but Dustin said as far as pictures go it is less "painful" for him if we just go somewhere. So, we went to the Portrait Innovations in town and I am very happy with the great pictures they got. Of course, Brenna always looks great in pictures, but the photographer really did a great job getting her relaxed and smiling right from the beginning.

Brenna really wanted to wear the wings - doesn't she look like a sweet little angel :-)
Our silly family picture (although you can only see Brenna's wing behind Dustin's head)
I just love Brenna's smile below - we love you girl - you are one awesome kid!
Hello All,
I'm not going to say much in today's post, but thought I would share Brenna's gotcha day pictures (Dustin has let me make this part of our annual celebration - I think it will be great to look back on all these pics taken a year apart).
We really enjoyed the afternoon as a family - Brenna finally got a chance to do some of her chalk outside and then we did our pictures, got Brenna a new bead for her bracelet (she picked an awesome sparkly one this year - just her style), went out to eat, a nice little walk and then home again. Brenna treated the class to frosted cookie (I went for the full size one that you cut into pieces - she picked out a baseball one - not sure why, but it was tasty) and then we enjoyed her ice cream cake in the evening. She loved the picture of Barbie on it :-)
Well, that is all I can think of for now!
Take Care!
