Grace's birthday really snuck up on me this year. For a couple weeks I kept thinking her birthday was a few days earlier than it actually is, and when I realized my mistake, I was so relieved that I had a little more time to prepare, but I still didn't feel ready for it. I should have been completely prepared, because before her birthday Grace would ask me every day if it was her birthday yet. She was SO excited when I was finally able to tell her that her birthday was the next day. We didn't have an organized party, but I did decorate with balloons and streamers to make it more festive for her. The Barton girls were visiting that weekend, so they ended up helping it feel like a party, and Grace was really happy to have her cousins here.
I put a curtain of balloons outside her door as a wake-up surprise. I think Grace liked it and I know Josie thought it was really cool
One of her cousins made this birthday balloon hat for her. She really liked it, she just doesn't look like it because she is still waking up.
Richie really likes to photo bomb lately.
After church she opened her presents.
She was pretty happy about this doll.
One of her other gifts was this Ana dress-up costume from "Frozen"
She asked for butterflies this year, so I made butterfly balloons and strawberry butterfly cupcakes.
We discovered that the balloons float above the air vent when the ac is going. Whenever it happened Josie would squeal, "Magic! Magic!"
Josie loves balloons, even if they aren't magic.
