“Birthdays”

Our Holly Bear celebrated her 11th birthday on July 17th! Part of me could hardly believe she's already 11, but Holly has been telling us "I'm basically 11," for at least 4 months leading up to her birthday, so also not a shocker that now she's "literally" 11. Holly wanted a Worms and Dirt cake (just like her 2nd birthday!). It was overall a pretty lowkey day. She had a small pizza and movie party with 2 friends (and sisters). Holly chose to watch, "Kubo and the two strings," one of her all time favorites. We love our Holly!

Greta is still so easy to please. For her birthday, she wanted to invite friends over for a spaghetti dinner and games. She was so happy and loved every minute. Together we baked her cake and after I frosted it, Holly and Greta adorned it with sprinkles. It all came together just fine.

Greta turned 9 earlier this month! Conor and I both are having a hard time wrapping our minds around that one. Time marches forward! Here are some pictures of my girl in her birthday dress. I finished in the day before her birthday, cutting it close! In the past few years, I've begun to give my girls a handful of fabric choices to choose from and we pick a pattern together. It's working out alright!

Yesterday was my birthday and now I'm 31. It was a relaxed day. In the evening, we went out for dinner with our best friends, Amorette and Parker, while the kids stayed at home and were babysat together. And then we ate my favorite chocolate cake! It was pretty much perfect. 

Over the weekend, we threw Greta a surprise party! I've never thrown a surprise party for my kids and in the words of Greta, "I want one every year!" So it was a hit! Greta's birthday isn't until the beginning of next month, however her birthday lands right in the middle of our month long trip to Mexico and we were in Ecuador for her birthday last year. I really wanted to make sure she feels loved and remembered.

I invited a bunch of her friends over and we made pizzas and ate cake and the kids played. It was pretty low key and pretty exciting at the same time!

I love you Greta!
