Yesterday I celebrated my 31st birthday (it feels so weird writing that!). I woke up to a nice surprise of my favorite kind of doughnuts, which I haven't had since my birthday last year (you know, with trying to be on this weight loss kick and all). Mikayla was eager to give me the birthday card that she helped make, and Ryan had a scavenger hunt all set up for me around the house, finding little gifts along the way. What a sweet husband! For lunch we headed to Red Robin and then afterwords Ryan took the kids home for a nap and I got to do some "kidless" browsing at Target. Later in the day my mom came to the house to watch the kids while Ryan and I snuck away to a movie. It was a very relaxing and enjoyable day with the family.
On Friday Mikayla went to one of her best friend's 3rd birthday party. It was all pink and princess-y...just the way Ellie likes it! They decorated crowns, wands, ate princess cake, attempted a little dress up, and watched the birthday girl open her presents. To say the least, Mikayla didn't want to leave!
In just 2 short months exactly from today's date, Mikayla will be turning 3 herself! And, friends, how that happened all of the sudden...I have yet to understand! I'll save the mooshy-gooshy stuff for her birthday, but as I started thinking and planning for what we wanted to do for her party, I thought I would share some of my birthday party ideas from the past to get in the party planning mood!
