This is the season of parties in my family, that’s for sure. 1st there’s Heathers, then mine, then Sage…all within 3 weeks, then a few weeks later is Jakes. Crazy! So we’ve been having a great time partying. Here are some highlights.
My birthday, part III
I never got to finish off how the day ended, and it’s oh so important, so I’ll squeeze it in After the delicious lunch and cupcakes, I took a short, but much needed, nap. Good thing for Little Einstein's which kept the kids entertained. Then the Bruno’s had me over for Fondue, presents and cake and ice cream! I’m so spoiled. Heidi made my cake. Isn’t it lovely. The kiddos sure thought so. And what party would be complete without a game of charades?
I came home full, exhausted, and content with another successful birthday. Can’t wait for next year!
Onto yesterday. Sage’s 3rd birthday. Really I’ve felt like she’s been 3 for the past 6 months, so it’s nice to have it official. Sage loves anything pink, so I decided on a pink princess theme. After reading a cute idea online about having a real princess come to the party, I just had to make it happen. Luckily I’ve got some royal connections and was able to get Princess Glimmer to come.
It was magical, to say the very least. She read a princess story to the kids, and gave them each a certificate that said they were real princesses. I also had a little jewelry box with a ring in it for her to give to each girl. Kari did an amazing job as the princess, and Sage is still talking about it. You’re so stinkin’ great Kari! THANK YOU!!!! We also were able to borrow a princess jump house, and the weather cooperated enough to use it outside. It was a perfect little party…… even with this little monster as the star of the show. :)
Whew, okay what’s next. After that we went home to find grandma and grandpa at our house. Sage LOVES her grandma, so that was a special treat. They were showered with attention and I had a minute to get ready for my Opera date with my dad later that night. Instead of making dinner for the whole family clan, we went to McDonalds and had happy meals. If only they had been giving out princess toys, it would have been perfect, but what can you do! We came home to presents and cake before I had to go.

It was an overwhelmingly fun day, and I’m so happy to have made it the best for my sweet little girl. Granted, she tests my patience a lot, but there is so much goodness that radiates from her. She’s funny and so sweet with her brother and is my kindred spirit. We both have to be in pajamas all day long. :) '
