ballerina/pirate birthday party

these two turned 5 this month. each year that passes i am more in awe and (by God's grace!) more in touch with how vastly unique and precious these girls are. so proud and so blessed to be there momma. 
this year they had their first friend party...i wasn't sure how it would mesh since the requested themes were ballerina and pirate...but it ended up working out great. i'm learning that embracing their unique differences is much easier than stressing about them. and we all had a super time. so much fun. they kept saying in the days leading up to their party, "our friends get to say, 'i'm going to a ballerina party and if i get bored of that i'll go to a pirate party!' " :)
these were the invites- ballerina on one side, pirate sewed onto the other. :) 
side note: i finally made the girls their own dolls even though i was pretty sure sophie's would live her life on the shelf... but to my surprise they both LOVED them- sophie probably even more than madeline. mini- sophie goes nearly everywhere with her and is always tucked in bed with her at night. and madeline thinks its pretty great that her dollie has pink hair since she always draws herself with pink or purple hair. so sweet and such a gift to me that they are treasured. :)


2-tone pretty pink four layer cake inspired by my sissy for the lovely and oh-so-sweet ballerina


my beautiful pirate and her ship cake. 
all credit for the cake goes completely to handyandy...without whom there would certainly not have been a bow spirit(??) and rudder among many other things. this cake was her favorite part of the party. for good reason. :)

To assist you to easily bear in mind and remember information and facts, it will help to organize details. Group of people the data by logical interactions. As an example, should you be looking to remember if you want to discover all the United states presidents, you are able to organize their titles by governmental get together, their program or maybe the status they may be from. Performing it by doing this, can make it easier to recall them should you coordinate them in one of those methods. [url=http://www.ss12w12ws.info]Inas665much[/url]

This is not the first time that DOMA has been ruled unconstitutional.
In 2010, two rulings in a federal court in Massachusetts held DOMA
unconstitutional. In one case, the court held
that DOMA violated the Equal Protection clause and also lacked
any rational relationship to the government programs which were being affected by the law.
In the other case, the court ruled that DOMA intruded upon the
state sovereign power of the Commonwealth of Massachusetts
- marriage being a matter traditionally regulated by
states, not the federal government. Those cases are on appeal to the U.
S. Court of Appeals for the First Circuit in Boston.
Why Peebles Law Office?
