The photo gallery is HUGE because there were so many pictures…I couldn’t decide what to post. We celebrated Molly’s birthday with friends yesterday. The Lambert and Osborne families joined us for brunch, presents, and cakes. AND then sledding and snow skating, lunch, playing, more sledding and snow skating, and then snacks and then dinner and FINALLY they went home. 🙂
Yesterday was my home ownership dream realized. My friend Jen and I used to have these days….often. The days where you start with a planned activity and then you keep coming up with reasons why you should keep hanging out. I loved those days. When we moved to North Berwick-I would think about those days and wish for friends in the area that I would get that comfortable with so that they would feel like my home was their home and vice versa. We have found those friends.
Highlight of the day was the snow skate that Beau brought along. EVERYONE got on one and had a blast. Ella was as true treat to watch. Little Miss Nervous/Perfectionist…hopped on one and took off. She was good. Fell all over the place and got back up to go again. Even trying stylish “bails”. The littlest, Lillia, got on and went, with all of us cheering loudly when she finished. When Molly heard the cheers—she looked at me and said “I want to try.” Her face couldn’t have been prouder when she fell and we all clapped and told her how awesome she is.
What a perfect day! And all day Molly got the special privileges…the only sled ride through the woods to the sled hill (all the rest of the kids had to walk), the chance to pick the movie of the night, the first pick of cupcakes for dessert after dinner (yup-cake and cupcakes yesterday), and on and on…she had a great day and told all of us—I am already four!!! And we smiled and said “Yes you are.”
