The girls are five today! My Nini was so shocked by her presents, she stopped what she was doing (unwrapping), came over and gave me a hug and said, "Thank you Mom!" Truly I was thrown off by this, because, although she is sweet and loving - rarely do I get this kind of affection. So at least now I know I can buy their affection!!!!
We let the girls open one of their gifts on Saturday night, which for Nini was a Cars "McQueen" car, and for Elise a barbie Cinderella with a horse. That night when I went to give her a kiss, I was teasing her about how they are turning five and are going to be too grown-up for mommy. She said,"But mommy, I'll always be your sweat heart!" ahhhhh! Melt a mommy's heart. Later during our conversation she said, "I almost cried when I opened my gift, I just love it so much!" Anyway, I guess we picked the "right" birthday gifts this year!
This morning we had our treatment and then headed back to the Acorn Cottage to have the rest of their birthday, cake, presents, and then headed home. So, now almost 9:00 p.m., I have 40 cupcakes that I have to go frost. Yikes! They get to have cupcakes in their class tomorrow.
Do you have a month jam packed with family birthdays?
What did you do this weekend?
What are you doing for the first day of October? Are you Halloween decorations out?
Thank you for all your well wishes and for your sweet comments to Craig!
