A Verry Merry Birthday to Two

12 Aug

This weekend was special. Well, all weekends are special. I’m telling you though, this weekend was extra extra truly special. We had a birthday party for the kids. Daphne turned 6, and Kirby turned 2, and they are four years and two days apart. We thought it would be the best and most magical way to welcome in this upcoming year and really represent our family.

Hell, who I am I kidding? I only wanted to buy one cake.

I kid, I kid. It was a fabulous occasion, and purchasing only one cake was really just an added bonus that I didn’t think about until after the party was all over.

It was a simple party, it was the funnest party. The recipe for the party is as follows:
1. Wait until three days until party would be held
2. Send out mass emails for a party
3. Purchase cake and snacks
4. Go to public park and just wait for people to show up

Somehow, it was this amazing and fun party. We scheduled snacks, cake, and a pinata, everything else the children did was on their own and uninhibited. Parents conversed and watched their kids, everyone had everyone’s kid in eyesight. We scored the most perfect spot in the park. I am the party throwing queen, and I’m not afraid to say it.

My son is turning 2, and my daughter is turning 6. They sing, play, laugh, dance, they are kind and loving, and have Jesus in their hearts. Everyday these kids that I have are getting older and older, wiser and wiser, and holy jeez am I lucky that I am here for the ride, camera in hand. Blog at the ready to record and share all the fun and exciting moments that make up their lives. Our lives.

Daphne is just this ball of spunk and fire. She whips out stories with so much vigor and delight, is so careful when she draws and makes sure that she includes teeth, fingers, and hair. Girlfriend is a whirlwind. I remember when I first met you. You were two, and loved nothing more in the world then a can of spaghettio’s and some Sponge Bob. You’re growing into this Little lady, who sits on the couch watching Top Chef and helping me make roasted carrot soup. I count my blessings everyday that you call me mom. I am blessed by you.

So when this little guy turns 2 on Monday, I’ll be super emotional. My Little lion man, my buddy, the cutie to my patootie. Where has the time gone?
