I know I say this every time one of our kids steps in age, but seriously, where has the time gone? It just seems surreal to me how old my kids are! I cannot believe that we just celebrated Caitlin’s 8th birthday…
We had a small party for her at our house the day before her actual birthday, 22 January 2011. Kids took over our house that day (and a group of girls that night). They had so much fun! Luckily, the weather was awesome! Warm enough for the windows and doors to be open and everyone to be in and out. She ended up with so many toys, outfits, makeup, and so much more. “Papa” Tom surprisingly ordered her a jumping balloon for over 24 hours. That was his gift to her. I do have to say, probably the best one! The kids stayed on it until it was time to stay inside and get ready for bed, but were back out the following morning… where they stayed until the guys showed up to pick the balloon up.
Thank you to everyone that came out for her special day! We all truly appreciate everything! She had a fabulous time! And to the ones that are just too far away, thank you so much for the warm wishes, gifts, and cards! You all made her day incredibly special!
Now, onto planning Nicholas’ big 4th birthday! Now really, where did the time go?
