she is six... the annual bash.

Yesterday my baby turned six... and the thing that is even weirder to me is that we are coming up on the anniversary of her being home with us for four years. That is just crazy to me... but here we are.


We had our annual halloween birthday bash... much more low key this year. So fun.

The grub. Kept it easy this year with chili, pizza and homemade mac-n-cheese... oh, and a few salts and sweets. And drinks.





Our costumes... literally thrown together in a day... err, less. Looks involved... but it wasn't.


This picture of my kids it is so indicative of their personalities. Payton looking to Mason to copy whatever it is that he is doing... and Nika off to the side, picking at her fingers, being shy when the attention is on her. Sigh.


Our guests... yes, costumes are mandatory... and oh, so fun.





A halloween party ain't no halloween party without the donut game. We do this every year... it never gets old.





Pass the apple... this was quite the cluster... and quite funny, actually.


Happy birthday, baby girl.


Instead of getting an assortment of party favors for the kids to pick from this year... which usually get chucked around my house courtesy of all the crazy boys... I just got these glow masks from the dollar bins at Target. They were pretty cool... definitely a hit with the kids. And they made their eyes look all eery... almost like those fake halloween contacts that they sell.


I think our halloween parties may be one of my favorite things each year... a tradition to keep, that is for sure.

  11. Hi, i would like to comment on Doctor Osemu Okpamen and his dealing with my need. I contacted him in desperation over my girlfriend of a year that broke up with me and went back to her EX-boyfriend. Consequently the break up has been devastating so much so that I've considered and still consider suicide as my only option to relieve the pain and agony in me. I felt heart broken and it affected me that i couldn't concentrate properly at my place of work for i very much loved her and need to get her back and my last chance was getting a love spell. I entered on the website and made contact with the Doctor for i read that he has a lot of positive feedback with his spells. I’m not disappointed because my lover came back to me within 24 hours after getting a love spell from the Doctor called Osemu Okpamen. We are happy couples now and if you need any kind of help, Email him on ( or whats-app +2348135254384 ). Michael Snapp, +1 (305) 647-6660 USA.

  15. This is a review on how jealous people tried to ruin our relationship.
    I met my lover in a birthday party I was invited to by a friend 5 years ago. It was kind of love at first sight for both of us as we were immediately attracted to each other. He walked me out of the party as I was leaving and asked for my number, that’s how our love started. We started seeing each other months later and have been in love for over 4 years until about 6 months ago we broke up days after he proposed to me, some jealous and angry people got involved in our relationship and said things about us to his family and friends, it ruined our plans and our fruitful relationship.
    He immediately got together with another woman who is from his neighborhood where he grew up just days after our breakup. I never knew the woman was the cause of our split until I contacted Dr. Wakina via After reading some interesting reviews about his spell. This wonderful love doctor divulged some deep secrets on how the woman has been blackmailing me and even tried to kill me some years ago but couldn’t succeed before planning to take away my lover immediately he makes any attempt to marry me. Every revelation made by Doctor was true as I pleaded to him with tears in my eyes to help me with this ugly situation that has torn me apart.
    To my greatest surprise, the love spell was done as described by Dr. Wakina and my lover came back within 5 days and the lady disappeared from our life and family. The lost relationship with his family and friends was restored as well. Am over excited to share this review. Please don’t fail to contact him while you can via Thank you Dr. Wakina.
