The girls and I are playing along with everyone over at Childhood 101 We Play once again.
Birthdays are so much fun to plan and celebrate, especially when kids are involved! Miss M has been planning her 4th birthday since her 3rd so there's been much discussion going on about what she would like to do. Her birthday happens to be three months away which can seem like such a long time to wait!
"Jessie Bear", her special teddy, seems to be getting older very quickly because Miss M celebrates her birthday often. This was Jessie Bear's 3rd birthday party (pictured below) at the dinner table. She had an ice-cream cake topped with sprinkles and tiny teddies and we all sang happy birthday to her.
"Happy Birthday dear Jessie Bear.
Happy Birthday to you!"
And the birthday fun continues......
Miss M has been baking birthday cakes in the sandpit in recent days. Here is Miss H's birthday cake (her real birthday isn't 'till November) but we enjoyed pretending together. She seemed to think it was a wonderful thing that we sang happy birthday to her. She clapped and smiled and tried to sing along too. The lovely flowers (and weeds) from around the yard made beautiful decorations for a cake and a stick in the middle of the cake became the candle.
"Happy Birthday my little sister!" - Miss M
I'm very sure we'll have many more pretend birthday parties but thankfully Jessie Bear continues to smile as more birthdays come her way. She looks very good for her age don't you think!
Another cake for Jessie Bear. What a lucky bear she is!
