February brought our first two family birthdays since we've been here. We had a really fun time celebrating together.
For John's birthday, we went out to wings with all the friends who work for the same company in our city. We had a little cake celebration as a family. John and I got to go on a date night and watch Les Mis that night, too. It was a really great day.
This is what you do when you can't find candles for the cake! : )
Catie's birthday was at the end of the month. She was SO excited to turn 6! I can't believe our precious, beautiful girl is already 6. We had a little family celebration at home. But Catie's REAL birthday wish was to have a sleepover with Miss Jessica and 2 friends. Jessica was a superhero and hosted a party for all 3 girls. They decorated cupcakes, had a royal tea party, and had a blast together.
Here we are singing "Happy Birthday." Cutie girl was a little embarrassed.
Catie wanted angel food cake for her home celebration. We couldn't find an angel food cake pan anywhere, and it didn't turn out so great in a 9x13 pan. For a last minute save, I cut the cake into hearts, iced the, and put on cute sprinkles. Whew! It worked.
Here's the sleepover. (Zach made cupcakes to send over for decorating! What a great brother!)
Miss Jessica is only gonna be here for another 5 weeks or so. We're going to miss her SOOOOO much!
Happy birthday, John and Catie. I loved celebrating you guys!!!
