It has been pretty darn fantastic. There just aren't words for the love in this family...
Last night, Grandma and Uncle Daniel came to town to stay the night. We met up at Cici's Pizza for dinner- and Briney met us there, too. Came home and T opened a present from Briney- Moon Sand! She played with it Sat morning and had a lot of fun (that stuff is messy though).
Saturday morning, we took the kids to get portraits done. I haven't had T's done since she was 18 months old... oops. I look forward to sharing the pics with everyone... it will be a couple weeks, though.
Then went to lunch and Christy came to join us.
Came home and the kids took naps. Then T opened presents from Grandma. Then out to dinner.
Teagan chose Texas Roadhouse for dinner. It is one of her favorite restaurants. We talked about the birthday thing- she has witnessed their birthday routine many times. The have a saddle on a wooden stand, the birthday guest sits in the saddle and they announce the birthday to the surrounding tables and ask everyone to give a big "Yee haw!" Well, Teagan did NOT want them to do it. We agreed and promised to not even tell them that it was her birthday. Then we get there... and T decides she wants the waitress to know it is her birthday but she doesn't want the saddle and yee haw. By the end of the meal... she wanted the saddle and the yee haw!! I'll post pics and even video later in the week...
Then Grandma and Daniel left for Chicago and we headed home. T is really enjoying this celebration of her last day being 2 and I'm finding that it's really helping me find closure, too. We are ready for day one of being 3!! T went to bed knowing that tomorrow will be filled with surprises and presents and fun. Jeff is working very hard in the kitchen right now- making a cake for T. An Ariel (Little Mermaid) cake... the kind with all the little stars of icing that make up the decorating on the cake. I am so proud of him. He is putting his all into doing this for his little girl... melts my heart!
Jeff was up until 2 a.m. But he made T a very special cake and I am so incredibly proud of him!!!
