Family Birthday Party

After we celebrated Little Girl's birthday with all her friends, we then had a family dinner to celebrate her as well (yes, I was thoroughly exhausted come the end of the weekend).

She requested a pink and brown cake, the shirt actually matching was a complete coincidence.

Before Little Girl was born, I was given a gift from my Mother-In-Law.  A beautiful crocheted blanket.

This blanket became her blankie.  It has been loved so much that it is falling apart, and although it has been fixed a few times, it is just loved too much.

Little Girl will put her blankie to bed, walks her in her doll stroller all the time and treats her blankie as her best friend.
But as this blankie is falling apart, we have made her keep it only in her bed so it does not get even worse.

Well Grandma gave Little Girl a super sweet present - a new blankie!
It is almost identical to her old one and although the old one will always have a special place in her heart, this new blankie can now be carted around the house again and go for rides in her stroller.

The other part of the present was a doll bed from Ikea - or in our house it is blankie's bed, it is up in Little Girl's room, right beside her bed where she tucks blankie in every night - yes, very cute!

Her other Grandparents gave her this necklace for her birthday.  It could not have come at a better time since the day before she was asking me for one.  Thanks Mom!

And I could not do a post without this picture of my brother - can you tell he was having fun!
