...ALL the way from Michigan!
I woke Maeve up this morning and told her it was Nana's birthday. She immediately started listing off the things we were going to do at her party. I told her we couldn't do princesses or balloons, but a cake would be a good idea.
We called my mom and Maeve went on and on about her birthday cake. Bless her heart, Maeve thought we were making a cake for Nana, meaning- Nana was coming over to eat it :(...
After nap time, I frosted the cake, and Maeve did 100% of the decorating (as you can see ;)
All in all, I think the cake was a good idea- even if she was completely confused and a little let down when we sang happy birthday and blew out the candles, but there was no Nana.
Today is one of those weird, hard days up here for me (us). It's not a holiday, like Christmas or anything, but its just one of those days that we've always spent together. Last year, my mom spent her 50th in the hospital (NOT fun...) but at least we were together ;)
Anyways, we wanted to celebrate the day even if we aren't WITH Nana.
So......... HAPPY BIRTHDAY MOM/NANA!
