Gaelle has been talking about her birthday for months. And the big day finally came. We weren't sure what to expect from her but she did great and handled the day just fine. The biggest thing was blowing out her candles. She was thrilled to have her very own cake and to be the only one to blow out the candles.
She started the day with a big hug from daddy.
My parents called and sang her "Happy Birthday". Can you tell it brought her lots of joy.
We kept the party low key. She only had 2 guests and her brother, but she just loved it all. We played some games with the kids.
We even talked her big sisters into participating with the 3 legged race. It was so cute.
The only thing she asked for was a piano, which we eventually realized was a pinata. We realized at the last moment that this pinata has ribbons to pull and isn't supposed to be bashed. So we still have the pink pony. Ahhh.... good times.
