Today was quite the success!! Before I went to bed last night, I set up all her gifts and got everything ready to go for the big day. She walked right passed my display, but quickly found it and exclaimed, "is this for me?!" She had to wait until Josh came home too pen anything. No biggie!
Charlotte took her donut holes and goodie bags to class, where she also wore a birthday crown and was sung "Happy Birthday" to.
While she was at school, I cleaned got the birthday cake baked (but that turned into a disaster so it ended being cupcakes), and worked a little. I don't know why, but (attempting to) baking a cake for Charlotte is really important to me. Even though I can't cook/bake and really don't enjoy being in the kitchen, I feel like baking a birthday cake is so special. Yes, weird, I know. Charlotte was so excited and helped frost the cupcakes when she came home.
After school, we ran some errands and then headed to the MARTA station for a huge surprise!! My parents flew in for her birthday!! They told me a couple weeks ago but I've kept it a secret. She is so happy to have hem here!!
We came back home and waited for Josh. Once he came home, we opened presents!! I was most excited for her real tea party set. I was so excited when I found this at the Pottery Barn Outlet.
She also got a new dress made by my grandma, with matching purse and fun things inside!! Thank you!
Charlotte got her first out of Nike shoes for her new "Playball" after school extra-curricula activity.
During our Labor Day shopping, Charlotte picked out a new lunchbox and matching water bottle for her after school activities. She loves the water bottle so Michigan, she brought it to dinner!
Birthday pajamas just might need to be a new tradition (like Christmas). I couldn't resist these donut PJ's I found at Costco. I mean, you all know how much we love donuts!! And yes, she's sleeping in them now.
After presents were opened, we went to Cheesecake Factory for dinner. But opted out of dessert since I had chocolate cupcakes and vanilla ice cream waiting at home!
The day couldn't have been more perfect. We love you baby girl!! Happy birthday!
