Slumber Parties & Sharpies

Today Lia turns 9 and I can't seem to figure out where the time has gone. We got her a dollhouse for her birthday, the kind that are wood and you build yourself. Everything is customizable from flooring, to wallpaper, to furniture, to electricity to drapes. I always wanted one of those when I was a little girl and a few weeks ago while we were shopping at Hobby Lobby she saw them and fell in love. I knew it would be the perfect gift for her. Until we opened the box. I have a feeling we might need to rent out a carpenter to build the thing the directions look like blue-prints and there's about a thousand pieces. We had no idea what we were getting ourselves in to with this one! No wonder I never got one!

There are about 7 little girls at my house right now, giggling, squealing, and running through the house. Levi is having a great time entertaining them and he keeps singing happy birthday in the cutest little voice. He got into the permanent markers today and gave himself several tattoos on his face, arms, and legs. It's becoming a trend.

And poor husband surrounded by girly giggles:
