Birthday morning on Oct 6 started off with family presents (a bunch of books this year) in the big bed, which is always a great way to start any day. But then it got even better. My folks snuck over and hid a long string that wound its way through the backyard, leading to clues along the way (like curry combs and plastic carrots).
The string eventually brought Ro and Ree to the playhouse where they found (insert much screaming here) the two electronic horses they were pining for:
(insert more screaming)(and even more)(I almost dropped the camera it was so loud)
Watching my dad and Ro try to muscle the big horse out of the tiny playhouse door just killed me:
Ree had asked for Baby Butterscotch and has covered it with kisses and slept with the critter every night since:
And Ro had asked for Big Butterscotch, which she can actually sit on. Oh the joy:
The two horses have been loved half to death so far. Luckily they’re tough.
Thank you BobBob and Wela.
Thanks also to Ma and Pa, who sent over the incredibly cute Jasmine costumes and accessories. Ro and Ree put them on immediately and then wanted to sleep in full costume and jewelry that night. We convinced them that even royalty settles for plain old pajamas at bedtime.
PS: Next post – the party. Too many pics to add to this post (shocker, eh?). And by the way, I’m now seriously behind (Bday party, visit to the pumpkin patch, recipes for corn cake, white enchiladas, roasted parmesan green beans, and more). Yeesh, could do a post a day for the rest of Oct. Maybe I will.
