Brooklyn's Gramma made her a triple layer chocolate cake.

Stay tuned for pictures next week of Brooklyn's Birthday Bonanza! We have a family party Sunday, her actual birthday on Tuesday, and then a party with her friends at the Children's Museum the following weekend. Theme? Disney Princesses!
What do 840,000 boxes of Girl Scout Cookies, A six hour basketball tournament, and a bunch of sugar have in common?
We started our Valentine's Day celebrations on Friday with Brooklyn's Valentine's Day Party and Dance at school. She looked so cute in her new outfit from Nanny and Grandpa. Here she is getting her own breakfast (yogurt) before school.
Here she is with a party cupcake...
On Saturday, I spent my V-day loading thousands of cases of Girl Scout cookies as it was our council's delivery day. After 6 hours of loading, I then headed to Bishop McGuiness High School where the band played in between basketball games at a tournament sponsored by Our Lady of Grace. It was a lot of fun, but I was BEAT by the end of the day!
I hope you all had a wonderful Valentine's Day!
