I celebrated my 40-something birthday last month and together with Hannah we shared an entire weekend celebrating.
Saturday morning when we woke up Hannah said she wanted some time to herself and went downstairs. I’ll be honest and say that I had a few moments of disappointment as it was my birthday and my girl chose a rare moment to want time to herself. Within a short amount of time she called me to come downstairs and excitedly shouted, ‘Happy Birthday Mommy!!!’ Awe! She had made us breakfast (cereal with chocolate eggs on top of it plus cheese and crackers. Mmm!) She had also set up the couch with all her friends and blankets for us to cuddle under. We snuggled together chatting for more than an hour and it was a precious, memorable time. She’d also made me a sweet card and filled a bag with some of her Easter eggs and candies that we still have hanging around. Love her tender, caring heart!!
and then headed to a local park to share some time together. Heh – I was surprised how small this park seemed. The last time we were there she was 2 and it seemed so much bigger. Guess it’s my girl who has grown!
We were invited for a BBQ at a friend’s home that night and it was great to spend time with them. Hannah enjoying a birthday cupcake. Thank you Auntie Shell!! We enjoyed spending the evening with your family.
We wrapped up the weekend of celebration with a birthday lunch with Nana, Papa and Grandma Dale.
