anna’s birthday falls on a stupid wednesday this year. so, we celebrated sunday. which might not have been the best plan because derek was at a meeting all afternoon and our house has been in a perpetual state of disaster since i started keeping extra people and then especially when i got pregnant.
anyhow. i managed to get the cakes baked and the frosting made, even with the “help” of some little people.
(that’s not really part of the party story, but it was a cute picture, so i’m making it work).
the guests arrived and the kiddos ate at the coffee table in the living room, while zombie-ing out with curious george on the television. oh. and the birthday girl? that’s her lying on the floor in the background.
anna got some sweet gifts. a baby rapunzel doll and a book from gramma. some math counter toys from ike (“so she can get smarter”). some giant sticker pads and princess hair accessories from grae and daniel. and a super sweet playdoh ice cream shop from maya and livy.
we will still have a special day for the girl tomorrow. which according to the weather does not include the park. boo.
