Happy Birthday, Sweet Lerloo!!!!
Here is the onslaught of photographic memories -
Good morning, Birthday Girl!
I decorated the night before. That's what the group of things from Target and the special occasion was about a few posts back.... I wanted to keep it simple, but I had to do a pinnacle birthday banner, so I ended staying up too late making it on the computer, cutting it out and threading the ribbon through each one.
Zekey was more excited about the whole affair than Ailey and kept asking if it was his birthday. :)
This one is a keeper. I hope she likes pink and green for many years to come.... ;p
I put some of those party blowers on the table, so the kids were very entertained while I got breakfast ready.
Ailey couldn't blow hard enough in it to make it work, but she was having a good time trying....
Waffle birthday breakfast
Cookie Birthday Cake, yummmmm!
Wasn't exactly what I had planned to do and I went all kinds of crazy with the icing and colors, but its the taste that counts and it counted!
The whole shebang
Ailey has been wearing this back pack around for most of day lately.
Ailey was LOVING all the attention as we sang to her. She kept singing "happy birthday to you" over and over again.
Zekey actually blew her candles out for her in all his excitement, so Sam lit them again so she could blow them out.
See Zekey's puggy face? :) She did a very good job blowing them out!
That is an "I did it!" grin.
Granny got her a pink vacuum.
Daddy was having a fun time opening it....
Some assembly was required.
And off she went!
We got her a pink bean bag, so they all now have their very own.
Zekes was having a very hard time because Ailey was in no mood to share her new toy and he VERY much wanted to play with it. Braden was more interested in the assembly part. :)
Braden and Zekey helped open her presents. Braden sounded like he was her tour guide. It was funny. He helped me put this present together because it was from him and Zekes.
That plush flower was only a dollar at Target and she loved it. So funny!
Apparently the scepter and crown that I made her isn't of interest, yet. Maybe later, eh?
Zekey, however, was most willing to try it on and pose for a pic.
I didn't get pictures, but Sam put both the crown and the flower headband on and oh, how I wish I had captured that!
