A Birthday - Cute and Sweet
Miles worked on the above "doll-house" for Lucy. Ben cut all the pieces and then Miles was left on his own. He hammered it all together. Then he asked Emmy if he could use some of her doll-house things and she agreed. Cute idea from a sweet boy. I was impressed with my kids since I had not yet said anything about them giving something to Lucy.
After dinner it was present-opening time:
After some play time it was on to cake and ice-cream:
This is what the cake should have looked like. I had actually done 4 layers and it looked utterly ridiculous. We (Ben and I) realized that we needed to shave off the top so it would have sat flat and looked much sharper and better. But it did look okay once we removed 2 of the layers - okay enough to be in a picture. The kids didn't know it was a "flop" and sure made me feel good! :) "Wow!" they said.
A bedtime she insisted that she wear her flop-ops. Okay, done. Then after she'd been down for a few minutes I heard her on the baby-monitor saying, "Mom, need my baby in my bed." (She has pauses when she speaks, thus the extra spaces). You bet I went up there and got her baby to her. So cute!
I love having birthdays and the chance to celebrate one of my precious little babes.
