Addison's birthday. This was the first year she was really aware that something significant was taking place. And it was all. about. her!
She'd made a few requests about the party (Minnie Mouse) she wanted and some of her wishes for toys (more Minnie Mouse).
The day before her birthday was a preschool day so we took Minnie Mouse cupcakes for everyone.
On her actual birthday, she got to pick out her favorite lunch (McDonald's cheeseburger) and eat while watching a movie with Mom.
That night was a school night, and also Lexi's Christmas performance at school so we kept it low key. We went out to dinner with the grandparents and opened a few presents when we got home.
|Oh the torture! She had to look at her presents all day just waiting for the right time to open them.|
|There was unabashed squealing at this point. She said to us, "It's what I've always dreamed of!"|
We had her formal party with her cousins and the grandparents that weekend. Of course, the theme was Minnie Mouse.
|Red, white and black everything!|
|The kids got to make their own totes for the favor.|
|She blew out the candle too soon.|
|Thankfully, the problem was easily solved and she got to blow out the candle (again) at the end of the birthday song.|
Addison says she had a great birthday and felt really special this year.
Happy Birthday, Addie!
