One down, Two to go

Yesterday we celebrated Anna's birthday.

We celebrated from the time she got up to the time she went to bed.

It is our tradition to open presents as soon as you wake up. Anna likes to sleep late, so everyone was up and waiting and Anna was snoozing away in her bed.

Finally she woke up (because her daddy was yelling across the house, "ANNA!! WAKE UP!!" She really didn't have much of a choice.

When she came out of her room she was met with hot pink streamers hanging from her door frame(also a tradition).

She opened presents and then got to eat the breakfast of her choice.

We then put her new curtains up and her new comforter on her bed. She was excited.

Nana and Papa came in time to eat lunch with us and then she opened presents again!

All of the boys had ballgames last night so after the games, we headed to the mexican restaurant for supper and some birthday entertainment. Anna did not disappoint. When she found out that Daniel had told the waiters it was her birthday, she cried a "real" cry and insisted that they NOT sing to her or make her wear the hat. She just got the free dessert. Which really is the better deal!

We then went home and had birthday cake. Forget the fact that bedtime is 8:30 and that we didn't get home until 9:20, and birthday cake wasn't eaten until 10:00. She had a great day and enjoyed all the birthday wishes from my facebook friends, and our family.

Now, to repeat this again this weekend. Friday is D&D's party and Saturday is their actual birthday. Then, I can concentrate on Disney!


  1. Happy Birthday to your sons this weekend!

  2. You stacked your kids birthdays like I did -- well I guess we should say God did. :)

    I'm not sure I could be in your family. I'm not awake enough in the mornings to do presents.

  3. How fun! I love your traditions, and I can't believe she slept in!!
