So when's she getting married and moving out? :wink:

How cool that her birthday is the same day her daddy graduates from the Army's school of "learning how to say *just* enough without outright lying" :lol:

ROFL! You're wrong...

She's moving out to her uncle's this weekend, apparently, where she intends to find her husband. Then when she's 6, she's moving in with her Papa (my dad), and when she's 7 she'll move to Nana's (my mother). Then she wants to come home for a few years before making the circuit again.

She always gets what she wants for her birthday: her daddy :roll: . He walked through the door on her 2nd birthay after being in Iraq 5 months -- surprise! He only missed her 3rd birthday b/c of deployment and even then he was able to schedule a VTC for THAT day. Wish he had the same level of committment to MY birthday LOL.

I keep fishing around for a better headshot of Little Princess...the only one I could find was at Christmas this past year.



This one does show how short she is (the rolled up pant legs -- those pants ought to be fitting 3-4 year olds). Poor baby is only 3'3" :eek: . Her 2 1/2 year old sister is only about 1.5" shorter now.

Anyway....we're going to have a quiet day today and then she's having a Dragon Tales party Saturday and we're taking her to Carowinds on Sunday. And she's getting tons of gifts lol. The UPS guy has made a lot of trips to my house lately...

Sounds like you have a wonderful weekend planned!! Carowinds sounds fun; I haven't been in a couple of years. The Borg ride is AWESOME!!!! Carowinds doesn't offer free admission to military members like Busch Gardens, but if you buy your tickets online, they are 30% off.

We actually got 50% off buying them through the travel agency at Ft. Jackson. Not free, but not bad either (it came out to $28/ticket, and Elena is free b/c of her age). I didn't mind so much since we didn't plan a party for Carissa this year and her birthday present is resuming dance lessons which don't start back up unti August (delayed gratification doesn't work well with 5 year olds LOL).

We did the free Busch Gardens 3 summers ago and that was nice...except that part where I was 7 months pregnant and it was 99 degrees out there! And Carissa was only 2 and there wasn't a whole lot she could participate in.
