This past weekend we celebrated both Greta and Felicity’s birthdays.
We started celebrating on Friday, with a special treat at school (and a dress down day for the birthday girl).
Greta had an entire schedule for her actual birthday on Saturday, and we tried to stick to it, but did falter a little. We started off with singing and presents in bed.
Then waffles for breakfast, and scoot around the neighborhood to visit the neighborhood yard sales (we didn’t find much). After some lego building, we went to Red Robin for lunch (pictures haven’t been downloaded from that camera), a quick trip to BJs to pick up some party supplies and home for more lego building. I took Eloise to her dance pictures (another post) and Greta worked on her bag that our neighbors brought over to her. We rescued some bean bag chairs from the trash (they were for sale at a yard sale earlier, but had the names Amanda and Michaela, so I wasn’t going to pay for them, but for free, we will happily be Amanda and Michaela).
The requested dinner was peanut butter and marshmallow sandwiches followed by a trip to get ice cream.
Then home for some much needed baths.
Sunday we switched to celebrating Felicity! She seemed excited by presents just for her.
After mass, we had more party preparations.
After attempting to put Felicity down for a nap two times, she finally gave in on the third try, which also happened to be right at party time. She ended up sleeping through the majority of the party and I woke her up for cake time. Greta got to invite 3 friends from school to the party and since I don’t have permission from their parents, I’m not going to post many pictures here.
We sang first to Greta, at which point everyone got confused as to what name to use, since she goes by Margaret at school and Greta everywhere else
Felicity was still waking up and a bit confused by what was happening. But she ended up enjoying a little cake.
Then she headed out to explore what she missed out while she was sleeping.
And that’s it, birthday weekend is complete. The rain that was supposed to happen during the party, didn’t start until a few hours after the party was over. I think everyone had fun. More posts coming later today or tomorrow.
