This morning at about 7:30am Natalie officially became 6 years old. After a whole weekend of celebrating she was THRILLED that today was finally THE day. Today was our most “low key” celebration, but she didn’t seem to notice or mind. She had a great day.
There were a few presents, brownies, and lots of phone calls.
She was one happy girl.
One thing that I thought was super sweet from the day (okay two).
#1 – Ethan woke up and the house was decorated for her and while at first he said, “Mommy its your birthday!” Once he got that it was Natalie’s he wouldn’t stop telling her Happy Birthday. He even asked her to hug and kiss him because as he said, “It’s your birthday and I love you!”
#2 – When we got home from church Bella got all the paper and colors out to make Natalie a card. I didn’t really pay much attention to what she was doing, but when we opened gifts she got all excited to give Natalie her card. I still didn’t pay too close of attention because Bella usually makes a card for birthdays, but when Natalie opened it there was money inside. It was just one dollar, but from Bella that is a lot. She gets $2 a week if she does her chores so that is half a week’s chores she just gave to her sister and she was so excited to do it. She is such a sweet big sister, Ethan and Natalie are lucky to have her.
We are so lucky to have Natalie in our lives. I am so glad we got to spend the last week celebrating her and what makes her so special. Life would certainly be a bit boring if she wasn’t around!
