4th Of July Weekend.

Wow! It was nice to have a long weekend. Kris had Friday off. He was so nice to stay home with the girls while I went to Sophie's funeral. Then Sat we hung out together all day. We took the girls to see Toy Story 3, so cute by the way. Molly loved it. She was so funny! Then we went to provo to hang out with Cyd and Braden and the rest of the Evans family to watch fire works and hang out. We roasted marshmollows and made smores. What a fun night! It would not have been the 4th had we not gone down to watch fireworks at my mom and dad's, but with them gone the renters upstairs were awesome to let us use the yard. It was a late night.

My favotite part of the 4th! The Jets! LOVE IT! What is the 4th without the Jets! REalLy!
Molly was in LOVE with Cyd and Braden's other niece and Nephews. She told me after that we should take home his niece and then they could have all boys! She cracks me up! Thanks for letting us tag along!
Molly doing sparklers for the first time! She loved it! She was really good too, until she got burned and then she was a little more chicken , but was still wanting to do it! Good girl!
I was bummed we only got the Cy of Cydne's name, I should have slowed down my shutter speed even more and I might have gotten it all. Sweet shot though, hu?

Cyd, and Stell

Sunday was also a great day. Molly's Birthday! Being as it was fast Sunday (Baird Sunday) We hosted sunday dinner. Molly was so cute. I was asking her all week what she wanted for dinner and she kept telling me she wanted a tea party! She is so funny... In LOVE with tea parties! So that's what I had planned for dinner. I tried to make it so that there was enough food and for the guys. They were awesome about coming to a tea party!

Here is the tea table. There were 3 different teas aka (chocolate milk, Strawberry lemonade and yellow lemonade. Also there were lots of treat so that people could snack until we got eating. Pink marshmallows, straw cookies, animal cookies, mini Oreos, and lemon heads.

This was dinner! Sandwiches, PB&J's PB&H's and ham and Swiss toasted rolls... so good! Pasta salad, Grandma Baird Yummy rolls (mini) Cupcakes mini fruit pizzas, watermelon, and chocolat pudding.

Molly with her favorite gift. This baby cries! That is what she asked for "a baby that cries!" not one that laughs or make sounds... "cries!" She also got a baby kit crib, car seat, bouncy seat, high chair, and strap on carrier. She is is little girl heaven!

Molly's cake! I did a mini cake just for her and them passed out mini cupcakes! She loved her tea party candles!

Here is the ballon launch! This is my favorite thing! A new tradition. We all have our own ballon, then we hold it and all sing happy birthday and then after we are done singing we all let go of ourballoonss, so everyone can see and know that we are having a birthday. Molly was so excited and kept telling everyone that it was so grandma and grandpa in Japan could see them! This was awesome and really will stay a family tradition!

Yes! this is how much cake waseatenn! REALLY? Glad it wasn't a huge cake!

I had given Molly the choice between a family party and a friend party this year and she was wanting a friend party, so being as we weren't having a family party and Kris's parents were alone for dinner that night we thought we would invite them along. What good sports they were about hanging out with the Bairds.

We had just figured out how to skype with my parents the day before and so they were so cute to want to talk with Molly on her birthday and We were thriled to talking with them again. I told them if they called back later than everyone would be there. So I had them call just before everyone came. So when they rang the door bell (p.s. speaking of good timing, everyone showed up at the same time.) I told them to be quiet and we would see how long it would take for anybody to notice that they were there. Once they did it was fun for everyone to say hello and we loved to talk with them and let Molly see them on her special day. They also got to see her open the gift my mom got for her before she left.

Grandpa, grandma, Kat and Whit, singing, and talking to Molly and also watching Molly open her birthday gift they got here!

What a great birthday Molly had. She was so funny. Stitting at her little table with Stella and eating all kinds off good food and treats, Stella kept getting a cupcake and licking the frosting off and then get another one, she was all about the chocolate. She had it all over her face... so funny.

Monday Was another good day... The sad thing is that I'm not quite sure what we did all day long, but I know I loved the long weekend. That night we all met up with Kris's family for Nan and Pa's block party! It was fun! The food was great and then they had this guy doing a magic show... He was so funny! Molly was totally in love and just laughing so hard her face was totally red. She was his last volunteer for the night and she was so funny! She really did steal the show. I wish I had my camera not even just for pictures, but to video... Really she was so hillarious! I loved it! We had to bail early for my web chat with my teacher for my online class.

Tusday was back to normal... I was so bummed. I love having Kris and the girls home and all of us just hanging out together. Kris is my all time favorite person in the world and the girls are a close second! What a great weekend we had and I look forward to the next long weekend that we get to spend together.
