On her actual birthday she had to wait until Jason got home from work to open her presents, it was so hard for her to wait.
On Saturday, Jason and I were very brave. We had 13 little girls, plus our own kids for a birthday party at our house. Luckily my sweet sister was there to help us with a little crowd control. Imagine...16 kids ages 3-6 running around in your house screaming in excitement as little kids do. It was fun to watch them, but it was very loud. They all had a ton of fun, playing games, decorating cookies, eating cupcakes and just running around.
Yesterday was the family party. When I brought down the cake for her to blow the candles out she wouldn't even look at it. She was being shy (I know, it was a family party). I sat there waiting for her to blow the candles out, but then the candles started to catch the top of the merry-go-round cake on fire, so I ended up blowing them out for her.
This looks like it is Karli's birthday cake, no, it's Maya's. Karli is just posing while we are waiting for Maya to stop doing what she's doing in the picture above that one. Maya kept hiding her face until I took the cake upstairs and started cutting it.
