Friday night we took her out alone for a date with mom and dad and having us to herself sure made her day extra-special. She's been such a wonderful patient big sister this year. We were so happy we could spend some time with her. She chose dinner at Applebees, where she got a balloon and huge ice cream sundae. Then, we went bowling - where Brooklyn beat Mom and Dad with a solid 83. (Before you laugh, try to remember we've hardly left the house in five years, Bowling is not something we've had time for!)
Sunday was her big family party at Grammy's house. We are big on themes and decided this year on a Lorax theme! We loved the bright colors and awesome story and we couldn't wait to bring it to life for Brooklyn's big day. We had a wonderful turnout and couldn't have asked for better weather - Brooklyn had been hoping for good enough weather to play outside. Addison enjoyed herself at the party, and Audrina was a little agitated but did manage to let mama share her attention with Brooklyn and eventually snuggled up and fell asleep.
The cake: Cherry Chip and homemade marshmellow fondant... don't mind the truffula trees falling apart, our Lilybug was picking at them, lol.
She gets very embarrassed when we sing happy birthday.
Addison's turn for night-night lights :)
