My Addison turned 6 today!
She loves to pose.
Wonder why? :)
We have been celebrating for a week now.
Last weekend we took all of her friends to Build-A-Bear.
My girls were excited to say the least.
The girls chose their bears and then stuffed their bears.
They washed their bears.
And dressed and accessorized their bears.
Then they paraded around the store with their bears.
And their smurfs.
(Ellie decided to buck the trend.)
One happy birthday girl.
She must have turned and whispered to me over five times that
"this is the best birthday ever!"
I almost bought this bear for myself.
Mr. budget who saw 11 darling Kindergarteners accessorizing their bears with huge grins on their faces and said "forget the budget and let everybody get what they want." (Addie - you have got your dad wrapped! Any pointers you can send my way would be much appreciated.)
The partying didn't stop there.
We have been traveling and celebrating for lots of reasons.
And busy with end of school year stuff.
And knee deep in house decisions.
Appliances, cabinets, and fixtures.
Lots going on that I will blog about when I have time to catch my breath.
And I'm itching to organize something.
It has been a while.
Still need to write my sweet six year old's birthday letter.
But for now I just want to say that I love my spunky little Addison so much.
Every night when we tuck Addison in bed we follow the same routine. It started several years ago with her daddy and now Addison won't go to sleep until Kenny and I have both given her our "goodnight kiss."
I kiss her, she wipes the kisses off, and I say "hey! you wiped off my kisses!"
Then we laugh. And I kiss her again. And she kisses me back.
And then we hug and I whisper in her ear "you make me melt."
Addison - you make us melt every single day.
Happy Birthday beautiful girl!
