A couple of nights ago, we had a birthday party for our younger daughter Abby, who had turned three earlier in the week. One of the nice things when they are this age is that you can wait a few days to tell them that they’ve had a birthday. When they are older, there’s more pressure.
We had some of our best friends over to celebrate Abby’s big day (two other families – ten kids total). It was a really nice evening, complete with a Winnie the Pooh cake, balloons, and a good-sized stack of gifts for the birthday girl.
Not surprisingly, she was actually very excited about getting clothes from my mom. Abby is a bit of a fashionista, and she likes to change outfits several times each day if we let her.
Aleah (who is almost eight now) reported,
“Wow! That was really fun! I never would have expected to have that much fun at Abby’s party. I hope I have that much fun at my own party.”
Since Aleah’s birthday is very close to the due date for our new baby, we are planning to have her party a couple of weeks early just in case.
Speaking of the new baby, I can’t believe how quickly the arrival is approaching. We are less than two weeks from our due date already! However, if our pattern holds, this baby will be about a week late. Time will tell. Maybe God has something different in store for us this time around.
I hope you enjoy some of the snapshots that I took!
