Suzy has been beyond excited for her birthday. We made a red and green chain and the last one wasn't Christmas - it was the day after Christmas, which is Suzy's birthday. Every morning, she'd look at the chain, light up and scream that she was so excited.
We opened presents in the morning, and Suzy got a baby humpback whale, then Lily got a baby blue whale to match the whales they received on Lily's birthday. They both sleep with the mommies and babies now.
Lily left her whales like this on the counter.
Jon got a Frosty the snowman shirt - and the girls were delighted (scroll down for more on Frosty).
Then it was off to the "Old McDonalds" play place. What a Dad - sitting in the screaming play place on his birthday. We still haven't done his Ice cream cake yet - but we will tomorrow.
In other random news - we thought we'd put the Frosty Holiday Special away until next Christmas. But, Lily was telling us about it this morning...
And this is the new veggie-feeding technique. Its always changing. And Suzy hardly ever eats them.
We also got to go see my friend Suzanne's new baby. So sweet! It was especially fun, because Emma is about the same age as my niece, Tess who I've yet to hold. Sigh. We spent a couple hours working on this sleeve for Emma's blessing dress, only to realize that we'd have to scrap it and do a much simpler version. Oh well - so it goes for beginning sewers.
