HAPPY BIRTHDAY BREE! I can hardly believe we have a daughter who is ONE...what a year of joy it has been! First we started off the fun with a birthday lunch with our friends Liz and Lilly. (Lilly and Bree have the same birthday, but Lilly turned two).
Bree didn't really like wearing the birthday hats, but it was so cute!
Then Robbie came home early from school (WAHOO!!) and we began our family birthday party. We decided to let Bree choose what to do first...and of course she wanted to go "ttt...ttt" As of last week she has partly learned the word "out" which she says at least four times a day as she stands pointing to the door. It is so cute! When the answer is, "no not right now" there are often tears. But when the answer is, "yes let's go out" the smile on her face is priceless!
Then we went "in" and opened some fun presents. Bree loved the books from Grandma and Grandpa Harmon (she goes in her room to her book basket several times a day!), as well as the fun activity book from Grandma Henderson. Though she doesn't understand the other gift from Grandma and Grandpa Henderson, she will be SO grateful someday! (They opened up a savings account for college and mission and will put in money each birthday! WOW!) Then she got some animal cards from me and Robbie...don't laugh, I know animal cards don't sound that cool, but these are the coolest! There are over thirty cards with bright real-life pictures of all sorts of animals. Then on the back it has interesting facts about those animals. I think they will be fun and useful the older Bree gets too!
