The Tenth Birthday that Wasn't...

E has been planning her 10th bday since about 364 days since her 9th birthday. I told her she could chose a party with all her friends (we don't do huge friend parties) or going out to a nice dinner with just me and Papa or whatever. She had decided on Harry Potter themed and either an escape room or Rip and Drip in the front yard. It finally got to the point in January and February I told her she wasn't allowed to discuss birthday plans until a month before her birthday. Well then COVID changed everything and we went back to our traditional family birthday and we are hoping to let her have her big friend party for the big ONE-ONE...
She was very particular about where she wanted people sitting and wearing her yellow sunglasses 

The big girls were suuuuuper excited about the gift they gave her because they knew she'd love it. Though I will say the watch that she was given has definitely been on her wrist ever since and if she wasn't our timekeeper before, she certainly is now and will set alarms to let us know when we should be leaving (I wonder who she gets from!)

Grammy's cake did not disappoint as usual

A decade has flown by with our first born, guinea pig!

Queen C turns Three

C turned the big THREE a few days ago: 

E suggested the Teddy Grahams for decorations

She BLEW through her presents

She has been able to slow down and appreciate them since


C somersaulted on her third birthday!

C got a new helmet to go with her new bike but she probably needs to wear it more often than not

The kids loved picking out and wrapping her gift

She lost her Baby Shark phone so I knew she'd love a new one

Happy Birthday C! You are a wild child with a big heart. We can't want to see what this year holds.

Drive Thru Kindergarten Graduation

Last week M had her final day of kindergarten... 

There's always a celebration/graduation and of course this year looked waaaaaaay different than in years past.

Everyone drove up and stood by their cars and the kids were called up one-by-one to say a few line about kindergarten 

I know M so desperately wanted to give her BFF a hug... She talks about her all the time and I know they miss eating lunch together and swinging on the monkey bars. That makes me sad to think about

They each got a cupcake - because no party and not food at school - much to the siblings chagrin. She had that after dinner and then we headed across town to a classmate's house for an outside movie. Which was blast! 

So even with all the weirdness going on... not a bad way to end kindergarten.
