Seven Years Old (Gigi's Yearly Photo)

Gigi turned seven on February 19th. Her yearly stats are:

Height: will add later
Weight: will add later

Gigi is my sweet little seven year old. She loves to play with her American Girl doll, Barbies, Shopkins, Legos and of course her little brother, Liam! Her favorite animal is a panda and her favorite colors are pink and Elsa blue. She loves first grade and her favorite subjects are writing and gym. She loves helping me in the kitchen, especially when I make sugar cookies! Here are her yearly photos...

and what would a photoshoot be without some silly pics :)


 how old are you, Gigi???

Gigi Turns Seven

I've gotten behind on my blog, so I'm going to do a bit of catching up!

For Gigi's 7th Birthday this year she got to invite her friend Sasha to a fun play place with miniature golf, a play zone, trampolines and bumper cars! They had so much fun and can't wait to go back!!!

The birthday girl wanted pink cupcakes with pink frosting (of course!)

Art Show

One of Gigi's pieces that she made in art class was selected to be in a city wide art show! Her teacher only selected a couple of students from each class to showcase their art and Gigi was one of them! We are so proud of our budding little artist!!!

Mall of America Fun

The Mall of America always has fun events on Tuesday mornings and one of them was a meet and greet with The Paw Patrol! Liam loves all things Paw Patrol so of course we had to go! He was so excited to meet them...

A few weeks later they had another one of Liam's favorites, The PJ Masks!

Mickelsen Christmas & New Year's Eve

We headed south to spend a few days with my parents and family. We had a cinnamon roll making party with all the grandkids at my mom's house. Each grandkid got to make their own pan and they loved rolling out the dough and frosting them...

The next day we had our family Christmas party. Per tradition, all the grandkids acted out the nativity and it was Liam's turn to be Joseph...

and Gigi was an angel...

We had a yummy dinner and then exchanged gifts and had a fun white elephant gift exchange!

New Year's Eve
On the afternoon before New Year's Eve, we played some games at my mom's house

That night, Kelly hosted a Murder Mystery Dinner Party! We each had an assigned character to play and had to dress in costume and wear a hat! 

the whole cast of characters!

During dinner, you had to reveal information about yourself and other characters. Then, after dinner we discovered who was the victim of the crime! We then gathered together to discuss who had done it and reveal the culprit! It was a lot of fun and we all had a great time playing this game. 

After our dinner, it was time to celebrate the New Year! We always do a 'Kids New Year' at 10pm so they aren't up too late :)

And to end the year here's my 2016 Top Nine Pics...
