Beignet Mamas 1st Birthday

Yes, that’s me celebrating my very first birthday.  Please don’t tell my mom I posted a picture of her with that huge afro.  🙂  Actually, my most favorite birthday memories actually are of my daughter’s birthdays.  She just recently turned two, and had a fabulous Strawberry Shortcake themed party.  I love watching her get excited over having a house filled with her little friends.

Now, let me give you some background.  My daughter LOVES company!  I mean really love it.  When folks come over she actually cries when it’s time for them to leave – adults or children, it doesn’t matter.

On the afternoon of her party, she was napping on the living room sofa when the first guests arrived.  When she opened her eyes and saw two of her friends from daycare, she leaped off the sofa and gave them both big hugs.  From there the screaming, squeeling and giggling commensed.  I escorted the three little ladies out into the backyard only to be greeted by a gigantic Strawberry Shortcake bounce house.  Their little eyes became big as saucers – followed by more screaming and squeeling.  They jumped until they could jump no more.  In all we had a total of 6 kids ranging in ages from 2 to 4 – which was perfect.
One of my aunts baked her the prettiest and tastiest strawberry themed cake – which was a big hit!

I have another aunt with whom my Petunia shares the same birthdate.  She lives in Las Vegas, and flew all the way out to the East coast just to share her special day with her great niece – making the  occasion even more special.

I know I have had plenty of cool birthdays, but watching the excitement on my little one’s face makes me happy.

    I like your take on this, Kennie! I’m right there with you. Seeing your child’s face light up over celebrations is priceless. That bounce house is fabulous! Your little Petunia is a cutie pie.

      Thank you! I felt bad two days later when she asked to go outside to “jump”. I had to explain that the bounce house was gone. She was NOT happy!

    You are still welcome to post all the healing-up stages of your treatment, too, ya know! I too have been educated by your coverage of this dreadful condition. I began by thinking you were being dreadfully casual with all the pus….but, with no infection present, who cares? As long as it brings you relief. Thanks for all four(?) of your posts.

    Your experiences with skiing down that hill, will be my “scared” feeling when I try to catch some bigger waves when I head out to some surf spots in Central America next month. I’ll be thinking the same thing, “Don’t nosedive” into the water, haha.
