cindy brady

pearl is 3

pearl turned 3 the end of july. unfortch, every kmart in the state has taken out its photo booth. dumb! i nearly died when i discovered this. luckily, a shady amusement park in arizona came to the rescue. in color, no less!

we threw pearl a cousins party with a treasure hunt/nature walk. it was hotter than blazes and a little disorganized and i think more stressful than my own wedding but my 6-year-old nephew ezra told me several times it was "the most fantastic party!" so i'll take that and run with it! (to chuck e. cheese next year.)

i love you pearl. you make my life interesting. i can't wait for you to thank me in your best actress oscar speech. keep practicing those dramatics all day, every day and i know you'll get there!

What a cutie. Hey this new girl moved into our ward (Park 11th) and she reminds me of you. Odd, I know, because I don't really know you. But she just cut her hair and bleached it and the first thing I thought was, whoa, she looks like Abby. However, I don't really know her either but she has the cutest little boy and he reminds me of your super cute chillins. Just thought you would want to know.

Eliza said...

looks like her mommy!

did this shady amusement park go by the name of castles n' coasters?

ashley and nathan said...

Soooooooo adorable. I can't believe that about the photobooths. That is really sad. Those were some good ones, too! Really dumb decision, Kmart! We miss you guys.

Emily said...

Norah weighed herself today and then in a super swaggery, funny tone said, "I'm bigger than Pearl." We love your girl ever so much. You were a rock star party-thrower and it was most fantastic without a doubt.

Nate said...

3 years already! Who'd of thought. It just seems like yesterday we were visiting you guys after you brought her home from the hospital.

P.S. Will you have Jamie call me...day or night...(801)380-1646.

Brooke said...

She is adorable! What a fun birthday, esp. if a 6 year old boy says so. From my experience, sometimes it's hard to please 6 year old boys, at least in my experience!

Ezra's word is gospel in my book.
Cant believe she is so old already.

ashley and nathan said...

She is such a beautiful little girl! Love her curls and big eyes with long lashes.

Nancy said...

she is the cutest thing and I love the Cindy Brady thing you have going on, only Pearl is even prettier.

Leslie said...

second, we're getting together next tuesday (the 17th) outside so we can catch up and would love to have you guys come play! probably water fun for the kiddos and sitting under the tree for the mommas and babies. :) 11a that day - call me if you have any questions! love ya!

wendy said...

And Ezra is STILL talking about Pearl's party. ;-)

Sarah said...

Um, your anonymous friend is abusing the system, no? i think you should unfriend her.

Tiffany said...

oh my gosh how cute is that! those are the cutest pictures! it's almost like she knows she's supposed to pose and be beautiful!

Bethany said...

A-dorable! Sounds like a creative party. Bet they all had a blast!

kelly said...

she IS cindy brady. well she isn't really, she's Pearl, but cute cute picture!!

Jake and Jenna said...

she really does look like cindy brady, which is so endearing. happy birthday pearl. so.. you're living back in the states (i think?). does that mean utah?

communikate. said...

your posting every three weeks, just isn't doing it for me.

it's like "here have a lick of ice-cream but wait another few weeks for another taste."

just saying.

{p.s. i'm not a fan of "just saying." not sure why i just used it.}

chelebug said...

ADORABLE!

The Frat Pack + Me said...

how cute is this blog? And those photos...Ahhhh-dorable!

Bethany said...

Hey, Abby. Sorry to contact you this way, but for some reason I thought I heard you guys might be moving here, to AZ? Is this something I have fabricated in my mind? Anyway, I'm asking you, because we're looking to rent our house out again, and I didn't know if you were looking to move here, if that was something you might be interested in doing. Anyway, I couldn't find you on facebook, so I'm writing you here:) Let me know if I'm completely crazy... Here's my email address:
ethansmama13@gmail.com
Let me know, either way, if you don't mind. Our home is 71st Ave. and Peoria
