Big Girl’s Birthday

Thing 1 had her birthday earlier this month. For a special treat we went out to eat and she got to pick the location. And she got some super fun stuff for her birthday: a fashion design set and a portable CD player (with download capabilities…). Her Dad sent her a $20 gift card and she was able to pick up a new outfit (a bright pink and white striped dress with leggings), a new pair of flip-flops, a matching bow, socks, colored pencils, a sketch pad and a new purple water bottle. She is quite the shopper! She also got to pick out some really cool sticker play-sets that the babysitter got her. What fun!

Here’s the Big Girl doing some of her fashion design….

Yesterday she got a surprise package from Grammy & Papa will lots of fun hair things and girly stuff which made her day. She’s been feeling a bit forgotten on her birthday this year so she’s finding out that sometimes good things come to those who wait!

Here’s one of her fashion designs:


Little Bit’s Birthday

We spent several hours roaming about the Kenai River Festival for something special for her birthday. She had a blast making all sorts of crafts.

Here’s her salmon that she painted. Aunt Claire will love the hot pink color that she picked out!

She’s also wearing her new outfit she picked out and the matching hair bows and glittery flip-flops she purchased with her $20 gift card from her Dad along with a Hello Kitty coloring book and crayons. She’s a pretty good little bargain hunter too!

She managed to get some pretty cool birthday presents a junior fashion designer set (so she can be just like big sis!) and some new Hello Kitty socks. She also got a Hello Kitty Lego set from the babysitter! What a score!

Plus yesterday she got a surprise package from Grammy & Papa with all sorts of fun little girl things in it for her birthday. She was thrilled!
