I informed Beebs that she wasn't allowed to have any more birthdays. No more growing. No more getting older. The day before her birthday this year I said "Guess what...you aren't allowed to turn four. Sorry. I need you to stay three." Her response? "Too late. You already got me presents."
Well, look who's a smarty pants already.
Do you see this mound of presents? It was, admittedly, ridiculous to look at but the reality was this entire pile cost much less than my boys' measly piles which included DSis and DSi games, etc. Most of those presents were $5 or less bought on clearance. That is the beauty of girl stuff. Super cheap (I may amend my opinion here in about 10 years when she's demanding $150 jeans and things of that nature).
But, as of now, she is ecstatic about each and every present, no matter how cheap.
(PS All these pictures were taken on the same day. You might be asking why three different dresses? Believe me, I'm asking the same thing.)
She was also lucky enough to get a fabulous quilt made by Grandpa & Grammy...ballerinas!
And one from Aunt Kimi!
It has been dubbed the "Fluffily Duffily" and was a source of contention for a while (the boys kept trying to steal it and use it). Thank goodness Aunt Kim took pity on them and sent two more FDs. Can you believe her? Such a good little homemaker/blanketmaker. The boys were beyond excited and now peace has once again returned to the house.
So that takes care of all the Landerson January birthdays! ::phew:: Now I can sit back and relax. I'm actually working on a little project that I'll tell you about next time that I'm enjoying immensely & intensely. I'll focus on that in February (my fave month). Other things coming up? Gty's parents are coming into town for Tbone's baptism on February 6th. Then Gty & I are flying out to Chicago for a 2.5 day getaway. Aren't we so adventurous and spontaneous? Plus, Gty is trying to keep his status on Southwest so....yeah.
