Tomorrow is the big birthday party for our little princess. The dress up trunk was picked up today with 30 princess dresses, six knights costumes (for those little men coming), and all the necessary accessories. Maggie has been having a great time shuffling through it all, digging into the trunk and declaring them all hers.
I have made a big deal about birthdays for Maggie. I believe in making my child's birthday a celebration. We lost that with Allie. We didn't get the opportunity to celebrate our sweet girl's life each year. So, I'm going to celebrate my Maggie. I'm going to celebrate that I've had another terrific year to be her mother. Another year to watch her develop into this girl of sass and sweetness, all balled into one. So, it might be just another birthday party for our friends to attend during their busy weekend and holiday season. I know that. But for me? For us? It's more than just another birthday party. It's the celebration of our girl's year and the anticipation of the next year of happiness with our princess.
Tomorrow officially begins my thirty days of blogging, though with today and yesterday, looks like I'm shooting for thirty-two days.
Let's end with some pictures of our fun times!
