A Week of Celebrating

Sunday, July 18, 2010

The fun began with a visit from my brother DJ last weekend and his friend Shelby.
Since DJ and Isabelle both have birthdays on the 11th of July, I asked Izzy if she wanted to share her birthday with Uncle DJ.

She thought for a moment and said “…..mmmm…..nope
Then considered…..and offered to negotiate. “Well….only if we have 2 birthday cakes?
Smart girl!
I agreed.
She said she’d share, but made it abundantly clear that her cake would be pink.
…and his would not!

On her birthday morning, she went on very special daddy-daughter date. Blueberry pancakes with whipped cream…..yummy!
At breakfast, Daddy gave her her first strand of pearls. She thinks she’s a princess!
Her daddy does too!
Her new friend “Kit” came along who has strawberry blonde hair and freckles just like Izzy!
We’ve since been gearing up for her “Cupcake-Themed Fancy Nancy Birthday Party”.

While helping me with the decorations this week, I held up a pink pom-pom that would hang from the ceiling over her tea table at the party.
“What do you think Izzy” I asked.
She gasped theatrically, “Oh Mommy, its so beautiful I could just cry!”
Quite the little drama queen!
Party pictures soon to follow!!
