Whew… having to back-blog is tough sometimes. We just finished a wonderful birthday party for Natalie. She turned 7 a few days ago, but today was her friend party. That means I’m tired, but oh-so-content. Cold leftover pizza and chips for dinner and another cupcake for dessert. Aaahh… But, let me back-up for you just a bit:
Under the bed present: the rainbow loom, and a comforter cover. To my surprise, she was more excited about the new comforter cover! But, I think once I show her how easy the loom is, she will love it!
Next up: more homemade cinnamon rolls for breakfast. Num num.
And then… the revelation. Natalie decided she wanted a surprise theme for her birthday. She gave us 3 options to choose from; penguins, dolphins, or polar bears. Since I needed to start prepping for her party, we sent her on a scavenger hunt to discover what her theme would be.
This is what she found:
The rest of the day was filled with gymnastics, a short shopping trip, and a movie with sisters. Then we went out to Islands for dinner, per Natalie’s request.
The only disappointment of the day was a cancelled trip to go ice skating, as the rink changed the times. We made-up for it the next day!
And, that brings us to today… the party… I’d better get on that!
