Mary Ella's Birthday Breakfast and Birthday Date with Mom

I don't know what it is about waking up on your birthday or on Christmas as a kid, but something in you just gives you that extra fuel and energy and "oomph" if you will. I haven't always done this with the kids but last year with Mary Ella I decided I wanted her to wake up to a fun birthday breakfast. So I set everything up (using things I had on hand; yes I am an admitted #craftandpartysupplieshoarder) at the kitchen table. I continued the "tradition" this year with Sam's 4-year old birthday so I think I've decided we will keep doing it as long as I enjoy it. :)  
Since they usually always have a birthday party with either family or friends, we don't really get to have a just-the-5-of-us celebration too often. This gives us a chance to do that. It also gives me a chance to be in my element and to really think about the kid we are celebrating and all the reasons I love him/her so much. I stayed up until well after midnight setting this up (mainly because it is summer and the kids don't go to bed before 10:30pm most nights - eek!) and I used my set up time to find my favorite already-printed photos of Mary Ella and look back on things she has done over the past year. I prayed for the year to come and the friends she will meet at her new school. I thought a lot about how I met most of my very best friends to date in kindergarten or even before! I am looking forward to the next chapter even though I know that means she is getting bigger and older. 




Everyone loves waking up to a sprinkle donut!





She asked for "Coronation Elsa" for her birthday, and, welllll let's just say Mom mistakingly thought it would be an easy find. I don't know why I thought that - our Target never has ANYTHING Frozen-related in stock. I went to our Target, Toys R Us, and finally the Hoover Target the day before her birthday. The Hoover Target had exactly 2 Frozen items in stock - Color Change Anna and Elsa - both in their coronation dresses. Thank you Lord!



I tried to convince her not to open them and that we could be gazillionaires one day (maybe even by the end of this year) if we sold them on eBay. But she didn't get it. Kids.




I also bought her this Frozen blanket (which DOESN'T HAVE ELSA!?!?!?! mommy fail.) She loves it anyway, thankfully.


And her daddy bought her the Brave bow and arrow set, which turned out to be a huge hit.



The next day, Daddy drove ahead of us up to the compound for the 4th of July celebration and we stayed behind to do some cleaning and organizing and go on a birthday date! We had a Build-A-Bear gift card from Christmas so we decided to use it for one of the Disney palace pets - "Treasure," Ariel's cat. What is it about kids and build-a-bear? They are stuffed animals.


We walked around the mall with Treasure and let her ride all the escalators like a real kitty should.


Later we went to Target and she picked out a belt, of all things. A pink and purple cheetah belt, to be exact. So we went home, found an outfit to go with it, and then we were off to the movies to meet our friends Misty and Avri for the 9:30pm showing of "Maleficent!"



We LOVED the movie!


We had such a fun birthday date and I look forward to many many more with this sweet and sassy girl.
