Tootaw turned the big 0-3 on the 7th! This extends the streak of our kids having birthdays within a week of moving in with us. That always makes it difficult to feel like we have a well thought out celebration, or to figure out what it is that would make them feel super special.
I knew that Tootaw really enjoyed bowling at Horn Creek (she talked about it more than anything else we did.) so I thought it would be fun for us all to go bowling together.
Of course, most of the game of bowling was spent anticipating opening the presents…
Earlier in the day we went to the grocery store, and I asked Tootaw if she’d like to pick out what kind of cake we could make together for her birthday. She said “No!” indignantly, as if it were the worst idea ever. Puzzled, I asked why not. “Because I want tuptakes!”
I wish I could post more pictures, but most of them have the girls’ faces in them!
Our friends, the Ketters, joined us to celebrate – which made for lots of little girls enjoying cupcakes!
Happy Birthday, sweet girl. We love you, and are so blessed to have gotten to help you celebrate your third birthday. I hope you know how much you are loved, and that you are a cherished part of our family. I hope you loved the “bowding” and the “tuptakes”. I pray for you everyday, that God would capture your heart and lead you into the little girl, and someday big girl, and someday woman, that he created you to be.
Love you, love you, love you,
