Pink Princess Birthday

The sunset link has been updated, go visit Beth for a heartfelt story...

Jen over at Sprite's Keeper gave us a free spin this week while she is busy preparing for Sprite's 3rd birthday party. I thought I'd use the free spin as an excuse to bring out vintage photos of my now 20 year old daughter and 17 year old son, along with some of their friends. They came out to wish Sprite a very Happy Birthday, whether it is a pink or yellow or princess or Snow White or Jasmine party. Happy Birthday Sprite!



May you enjoy those candles and make a good wish.

My Princess (on the right) says to make sure you get to lick the spoon and the bowl when making cake.




May you be thrilled with your gifts and the fun of package unwrapping.



If there are games involved, may they be exciting.




Cheers to you from the kids Sprite!

For more spins, head on over to Sprite's Keeper.

Birthday goodness. Yay!

Kristan said...

Too cute! And I think that's the first time we've (or I've) seen your husband's face. WOW your son looks so much like him, at least in pictures!

Jan said...

Your daughter was absolutely adorable when she was little - you can see the lovely young lady she grew up to be. I think it's lovely that you chose to honor Sprite's birthday like this, since you've told us what a "girly girl" your daughter has always been - I bet pink princess parties were often the order of the day when she was growing up!

Sprite's Keeper said...

Oh, I love it! Thank you so much for the birthday wishes! Sprite woke up this morning saying she's 8. Oy! Your children are beautiful and the looks on their faces shows just how much love there is in your family. (And they're gorgeous too. But you knew that, right?)
You're linked and I'm giving the birthday girl a big Aloha from you!

First, Happy Birthday to Sprite!

Hey, Pseudo! Is that a rare view of the hubs there? Your kids are so adorable and how sweet of them to show up for Sprite's party.

I think it's helpful to be around children on a weekly basis so we remember to savor the good things!

This is one of my favorite things to do. Looking at old photographs of my family. Back when I was taking the pictures, and I took a lot of them, everyone told me I was taking too many. Now, when I look back through them, all I can think is that I wished I had taken more. They bring back a lot of memories, and you get a chuckle out of how people have changed over the years.

Your children look happy at those ages. I'm sure, a product of their upbringing.

Giving a proper toast- a VERY important skill that should be taught at a very early age!

Amy said...

Cute post. Love the pictures. I wonder when Alyce is 20 how strange her pictures will look to me..

Happy birthday to Sprite, Pseudo, and what a wonderful tribute for her by sharing your own family photos! Too adorable, your children!

Maureen@IslandRoar said...

Oh, they're adorable. I keep trying to remember that the way our "big kids" look today will seem precious and "so long ago" when we look back in ten years. But were they ever really so young???

Gal Friday said...

Looks like good times!(love the kids toasting at Christmastime, with some sitting right on the counter)

Debbie said...

I haven't licked the spoon and bowl for so long it makes me very sad.

Hilary said...

Aww so cute. When you look back on those, I'll bet it transports you back as if no time has passed. At least that's how it is when I flip through the pages of my albums...sigh. Lovely shots. :)

Stacy (the Random Cool Chick) said...

Awwww! Those pictures are priceless! :)

Mama Badger said...

Awesome photos! I love your trip down memory lane. LG just learned the wonders of licking the bowl. Now I have to teach him that I make things other than brownies...
