Yesterday we got finally got our camera back when we went to do our laundry.  I maybe never told you but after doing a few loads here in our cottage we noticed a strange brown spotting all over our clothes.  We figured out that it was rust in the pipes...which means that unless I want to stain and ruin everything we own we are going to have to do our laundry elsewhere.  Joy of Joys.

Also, we can't use the water to cook with because there is literally so much rust....we also smell like metal after showers, and brushing our teeth with the iron infused liquid is a special experience.  But really, besides this and the 10 wild cats that fight outside 24/7 we can't complain.

Back to the reason for this post:  We got our camera back so now I can share all the adorable pictures of my nieces 1st birthday!  Also, we are going to Disney in a mere 4 days and I will be MIA in the blog world for about a week...  so I am trying to make up for that with my weekend posts.  (Not sure if it will work).  Anyhow, despite every one feeling kind of sick, including the husband who has the stomach flu, we had a great time.  I don't mean to overload you with photos, but really how I am supposed to choose?!  You will see what I mean:

Baby Kloey, 6 months

She has just started showing little teeth. It is so cute.

Rylee was the cutest little birthday girl ever.   She is such a sweet little chunk and she waddled everywhere in her tutu.  Also, I love these antique photo effects.  Can't get enough! 

Rylee LOVED her balloons, and so did her cousin Landon.  Landon will be 2 in April, and of course we will have an equally fun/loud/chaotic birthday party for the little Mr. Man.

Some of my favorite pictures were of the gorgeous (I am a cupcake fanatic, okay?) and equally delicious cupcakes Rylee's mama, Kristin made!  "1" for Rylee and "6" for Kloey!

These were as good as they look. 

Little girl birthday parties are the best.

Dancing and that ever elusive picture of the all of the grandkids followed.
Any parents out there will understand HOW HARD it is to get a group of children to smile on command at the same time.  It is a riot in the Slater home because 9 adults are usually jumping around, whistling and clapping their hands as one person tried to snap as many pictures as possible.  It gives me a new appreciation for those poor photographers that have to go to elementary schools and take class pictures.  God Bless Them. For us, THIS picture was as close as we got to everyone facing the camera and kind of smiling.... 

 pictures of little girls in pink and purple? cute OVERLOAD.

And, of course, no one upstaged the birthday girl... It makes me excited to have a little girl so I can dress her in a tutu and have pink dresses/cupcakes/decorations galore!
