Sunday Snapshot - "A Birthday Fit For A Princess...Or Two"

November 20, 2011

Cake Collage
This morning before the birthday girl woke up, I got up and set the table with Sarah's gifts and her special birthday cake! When anyone asks Sarah what her favorite color is, she replies "My favorite color is Pink, Purple, and Glitter". So we were sure to pick out a cake that was decked out in her "FAVORITE COLOR".

She was so excited when she saw it, but like any other child on their birthday, she was dying to rip into those gifts!

We are having a small party for her later today when we will actually dig into that cake, right now we are all drooling as we sit here staring at it:)

We were trying to decide what to buy Sarah for her birthday..... there are more than a few things on her Christmas list already, but she kept talking about this FurReal Walking Dog, so we decided that would be her big gift from Mommy and Daddy. She was SO EXCITED when she realized what was under that wrapping paper. What we didn't realize..... was that Reagan was going to be just as excited!! Just look at those faces. Could they be any happier than this?

Reading My New Princess Book BLOG
While Pat and Nick wrestled with the box and all the plastic packaging that kept the dog in place, Sarah started to read her new Princess book that was sent by her "Fairy Godmother".
Thanks Aunt Ann!! Sarah loves her new book!!!

Walking The Dog Collage
I thought the dog was sort of cute in the box, but OH MY.... this little pup is absolutely ADORABLE!!!

I want a turn
You remember those two happy faces when the dog appeared from under that wrapping paper??
There were quite a few tears shed this morning by our little spicy girl. She wanted that puppy and she wanted it all to herself. I think we are quickly approaching the "mine" stage.

Reagan's turn with the dog BLOG
Lucky for Reags, her sister was willing to share her new bday gift and gave her a turn!

Reagan's birthday is on Wednesday and we have her gifts already, but I am thinking I may need to put those away for Christmas and get her a puppy too! They would look so cute walking them side by side!

Okay, I am off to get things in order for the birthday celebration tonight.

Happy Birthday Sweet Sarah.
Welcome FIVE...... we have heard it is FUN and FABULOUS!

Amelia has a shirt that says, "my favorite color is glitter." I think Sarah needs one.
That cake is gorgeous, but I bet the smiles after the puppy came out were the best part of the day. Was that an up-do on Reagan? I can't wait to see the princesses in full garb.

Kayce said...

How adorable Lisa! Happy birthday to Sarah!!! What a great age to be and what a nice sharer she is. Lisa, these pics are beyond darling and I can hardly believe how much Reagan's hair has grown and how grown up Sarah is getting. They are just adorable and happy early birthday to Reagan. how fun having their birthdays so close. Those are some amazing girls (and boy) you have. :)


Annika said...

A very happy birthday to Sarah!

As we wait (and wait) to be able to go to China and get our beautiful girl, I love to read about your girls. I thought Reagan and our sweetie were close in age-- well, ours turns to on Thursday-- just one day apart. No wonder pictures of Reagan help me get through the wait. :^)

Diane said...

Happy Birthday Sarah! I know you had a very special day! You are the BEST big sister ever!!

You are a BEAUTIFUL princess:)

snekcip said...

Oh this puppy dog IS cute!! We got one last year for Christmas and she absolutely loves it!! We also have quite a battle when our grandson comes to visit. Bre says "This is a girl dog!! My 3yr old grandson could care less if the thing was wearing a skirt!! He just like the fact that it makes noise and walks!!! I'm gonna send you a few pics of our BIG DAY!!! So look for a email from me!!! :)

Krista said...

Oh yes.... you certainly need another dog. :)

Happy Birthday Sarah!!!

PS. Mia has been sitting beside me babbling on about all your photos. She loves looking at Reagan especially. Must be the similarity...
