Happy Birthday, Annabelle!
Yes, today marks the 2-year anniversary of my daughter’s grand appearance to this world. It seems like only yesterday I was dreaming about the person she would be, and anxiously awaiting her arrival. Now, I couldn’t imagine my life without her.
Because Belles’ birthday fell on a Tuesday, this year, I took an extra shift over the weekend, so I could have off today, to spend the WHOLE day with my birthday girl, and what a great day it was.
Mommy, Mark, GeeGee, and PopPop all spent the day celebrating with Annabelle. We started the day searching all over Salisbury for a Mickey Mouse cake pan for Sunday’s birthday party, to finally find one at Micheal’s.
For all of you saying, “Duh,” right now – BITE ME.
Then, we moved to the mall, where Annabelle “thought” she wanted to ride the “horsies.”
So, since the “horsies” were an EPIC FAIL, we continued on. Next stop: FYE.
After we were done with a little shopping, it was time for lunch, at Ruby Tuesdays. With a belly full of salad and grilled cheese, it was time for cake!
Now that Annabelle was hyped up on sugar, its time to burn it all off. Next stop: kids play area.
After all that, the birthday girl was pooped! We headed home for a nap, and a little quality time. It was a great day off – I only wish we had more like it.
A special thank you to GeeGee, PopPop, and Mark for making today so much fun. We love you all.
And to my big, birthday princess, Annabelle: I will love you for forever and a day.
