Jimmy and I listened on the monitor as Madi ran into Charlie's bedroom yesterday morning to wake him up and begin the celebrations. She gave him a blow-by-blow about how we'd go to church, and then have lunch, and that after his nap, Grandpa and Miss Suzanne would come over.
And we'd have choc choc cake. "Yum!" Charlie shrieked with joy.
She'd been preparing him for that scenario all week.
Since Madi's birthday falls on Wednesday this week, we'd planned to celebrate doubly.
Grandpa and Miss Suzanne showed up with birthday gifts in hand, and Madi was thrilled to open her much-hoped-for gift of a face painting kit.
How could we possibly say no?
|Charlie becomes a butterfly|
|"Close your eyes, Charlie!"|
|Madi named my design, "The Blob."|
|The Butterfly and The Blob|
|Daddy's a vampire|
|Madi's Diva Design|
|Now that's a beautiful face.|
|Blowing out the candles - his favorite part|
Happy Birthday, Char Char!
We love you!!
