It's been awhile since my Grandma has let me take over her blog. But on important occasions, you should hear from the actual birthday girl, don't you think? My Grandma says I should be a natural with the whole reporting thing since I love to ask questions. It's an occupational hazard, she says.
My 4th birthday was December 30, but we celebrated over the weekend so more people could come to my party. That was OK with me. I got to have a special day with my Mommy on my real birthday. My Mommy asked me if I wanted it to be just her and me. But I let Brooke come with us to the Discovery Center, too. Now that she's 16 months old, we like to play together ... well, most of the time. (** See below for the exclusions.)
My Mommy and I made homemade funfetti cupcakes for my party. My Mommy frosted them, but I got to put all the decorations on myself. I decided I wanted a Paw Patrol party. So I made doggy paw prints with M & Ms. We didn't even have to tell people what they were supposed to be. That's pretty good, don't you think? We decorated some of them with Paw Patrol rings. My favorite character is Skye. I like her because she's a girl and she likes pink - just like me!
"Don't smile!" they'd say.
I did my best 4 year old smile.
Well, now that the holidays and my birthday are all over, I guess it's time to get back into the routine. So, I'll turn the blog back over to my Grandma.
Until next time,
Grandma flashback moment: Kinley Marie Ladd arrived in time for our belated family Christmas celebration of 2011. She wasn't due until January 12. She was all of 5 pounds, 15 ounces, and was about the size of her Christmas stocking. She was the best party crasher ever! How time flies!
