hApPy BiRtHdAy ClaiRe!!

Dear Claire,
What a year you're had. You've grown up into such a curious little girl. Always trying to figure out how things work. I love the way your mind works. I wish I could be inside your head for just one minute. Then maybe I'd understand why you colored on the walls, wiped poop on the walls and your crib, and used my favorite Mac makeup to color yourself and my room. I can laugh at these thing now. I think it's because of your sweet little attitude. Everyone who meets you loves you instantly. Your smile and laugh is contagious.
You make our family that much better.
We all love you so much!!
Love,
Mom, Dad and sisters!

Last night we had both sides of our family over for cake and ice cream. Claire loved her 2 cakes. Yes that's right. She had 2 cakes!! Kim must sure love her to make 2 cakes.
Then this morning Claire opened presents and had breakfast in bed. Breakfast being a lose term, since it was a cupcake. Bella reminded me that she didn't get to wear the birthday crown this year. Sorry Bella. Maybe one day she'll understand that my head is barley screwed on these days, and she's lucky I remember half the things I do.
To top off the birthday celebrations, we're going swimming at the rec center tonight. Can't wait!





The proud parents!

Yay! Happy Birthday to Claire. Your little girls are so adorable, not to mention they have a beautiful mother.
P.S. I would LOVE to do lunch sometime for sure. It would be great to get together again.
