Corinne’s birthday stretched out over two weeks. She picked to have one friend, Ella, sleep over instead of having a party with lots of friends. They put on their pjs, watched a movie, and had a treat. Time for bed, right? WRONG! Corinne had us put her princess castle tent in her room for them to sleep in since she wanted castle birthday theme. They played, screamed, and fought until after I went to bed around 11:30. Kids! I thought they would be exhausted and sleep in. WRONG AGAIN! They were up a smidge after 6 screaming and giggling again. Ugh. Corinne picked chocolate chip pancakes for breakfast. The girls got their nails painted while they watched some cartoons then played until it was time for Ella to go home. It was tiring but fun.
This past weekend was the actual birthday. Corinne had missed school all week with the flu and was itching for some company. Papa Tom and Abuelita spent the day with us. She decided to have a castle cake this year.
