I have several things I’ve needed to blog about since last weekend, but our week last week was busy, hectic, filled with the unexpected and I just didn’t get around to it. So now I’ll attempt to catch up.
The night before Ava’s birthday, we invited over some of the girls in her class for a party. She asked for a girls only party this year and she had specific things she wanted to do so we tried to do those things she wanted.
Ava had asked if we could do a craft so we found some bracelet making kits. I seriously underestimated the amount of help the girls would need for these. They had fun but it wasn’t as hands on for them as I had hoped. Some of them got it and some of them needed a little more help.
The other specific request Ava had was to play bingo with M&Ms. I found some cute printable candy bingo cards on Etsy and then gave the girls a cup of M&Ms.
That morning, she and I went to get our toes done! She enjoyed the big pedicure chair and the massage it gave her!We took our annual picture with our fingers. I’m not sure what we’ll do when she goes past 10! It’s hard to believe we’ve been parents for seven years. We are still not even close to being experets and have a lot to learn, but are loving this ride!
I think she had a pretty good birthday!!! And lucky for her, since we have family spread all out, we have a couple more celebrations coming up for her! She loves that her birthday goes on for a long time! :)
