We celebrated My sweet Rhemidy turning 3 the other day. We started off her birthday with her room filled with 70 pink, white, and purple balloons. (which she thought was awesome. Her exact words were, “Oh mom! I love these balloons!” 🙂 ) We had donuts for breakfast (thanks to Jess who brought them over to share with the kiddos) Birthday Cake Oreo’s for snack. She picked Mac N Cheese with Peas for lunch. After all (FIVE) daycare kids went home that day, we headed out to Monkey Joes for the girls to play. They Had A Blast. (I was annoyed at first, because apparently, UNLESS you rent a birthday party room, you are NOT allowed to bring in presents. DUMB. so then I refused to buy their average tasting, $15 cheese pizza. lol) After an hour and a half of running, jumping, sliding, and playing we headed out to Pizza Ranch for dinner. (She said she wanted Pizza for dinner and we wanted somewhere that would sing to her) She, of course, ate 3 bits of her cheesy bread sticks and decided she wasn’t very hungry. Her sister on the other hand had 2 pieces of pizza, 2 cheesy bread sticks, corn, and 2 blueberry dessert pizza. Haha. After we were done eating, she opened her presents, Some clothes (that I bought used, 5 pairs of shorts, 2 shirts, and 3 dresses for $4! yay for being thrifty!) and a Scentsy Frog (again, used for $3.. still had its tags on it and everything!) AND a My First Princess Aurora Doll. (a find at Once Upon A Child for $3. Woot!) She loved all her gifts. We then let her have ice cream and some blueberry dessert pizza (unfortunately due to me having a 7 kids, instead of the typical 4, on her birthday I did not have time to bake a cake) and while she was eating a big group of kids (who were helping work that night to raise money for their camp) came out to sing for her. She was so embarrassed/uncomfortable that she just sat there and ate her ice cream as if no one was around her. I could not help but laugh. (considering moments before they came over, Rhem informed us that everyone needed to sing “Happy Birthday to Rhemidy.” I was also relieved that she didn’t cry, like she did when all her friends/family sang at her second birthday party)
Over all it was a great day, and she was very excited to tell her friends about it the next morning. Her party with friends and family is this weekend, although I cannot decide if we should keep it on Sunday (there is a chance of rain) or move it to Saturday which is suppose to be clear and in the 70’s (but then some friends won’t be able to make it) decisions, decisions. 🙂
oh… MY BABY IS 3! 😮
Time seems to be flying bye.
