I think we started a tradition! Last night before I went to bed, I decked the halls with lots of streamers...
and tossed blown up balloons into the kids’ room while they slept. Doug asked if he could wake them up before he went to work so he could see their reaction. I said no, lol. But seconds later they woke up.
They were SO excited! Lily saw the balloons and in a shriek-y voice said “Guys! Come here!!! There’s balloons in my room for my birthday!!!”
Getting ready for a day filled with balloons, streamers, a trip to the park,
breakfast tacos (her request),
carrot cake (again, her request – I’ve been asked about 50 times already to make it),
yellow painted fingers and toes,
painting these birdhouses to hang in their room (big = $1 at JoAnn’s, tiny = $1 at Target Dollar Spot),
and pizza with the whole fam tonight.
Happy birthday, Lily!
These past three years with you and your brothers have been the best of my life.
Your smile melts my heart, your sense of humor cracks me up, and I’m amazed every day at how smart you are! I can’t believe how big you are, I love watching you grow, and am looking forward to the next year!
