So for two months before her birthday, I would tell her about her party, what decorations we are going to have...she would list all of her friends that she wanted to come....then for two weeks before the party we practiced blowing out candles on pretend play dough cakes. She was pumped for her birthday week to say the least.
Her birthday was on a Tuesday and her party on a Saturday...so Sunday the decorations went up. Tuesday I made a cake and we continued to eat that cake until Friday night (singing to her and letting her blow out candles every single night). I know...a little over the top...but I want my kids to always remember how special they are...how grateful I am for their life and how their birth day made our lives so much better.
For her party, we invited immediate family and Lucia's friends and had a wonderful day celebrating my sweet, spunky, wild, daughter. Here are some pictures of the party!
Thank you to everyone who made it out, sent gifts, and share our love for this sweet little firecracker.
