Her actual birthday was Sunday but we celebrated it on Saturday. We met up with Allan’s parents at Peter Piper Pizza. Allan’s parents said they’d get there after us and to go ahead and start (I think, I wasn’t the one on the phone but Allan said we should go ahead and start) and Sierra hearing that begged to open her presents first thing. I told her, at least let me order the pizza and then she could open presents! haha
I took a couple pictures of her opening presents but only because I was setting the focus to record. I don’t have any super fun pictures of her expressions as she opened things, that’s all recorded. But it was adorable!
Ember had spent the day saying “Happy Sierra!” Which is how she says Happy Birthday. She just leaves off the birthday. lol,
She LOOOOOVES birthdays, thinks they’re the best thing ever, and after me sitting her down and telling her that it was Sierra’s birthday (because all day long she was singing, “Happy Birthday to Ember” and asking to open Sierra’s presents, haha) she was totally joyful for Sierra. She kept going up to Sierra and telling her to open her presents (while we were still at home, haha) and hugging her and stuff. It was just the sweetest to watch.
We get the kids’ cakes free from Bashas every year. Sierra picked out this one. We forgot candles so we just sang to her and ate it and then the next day we did a candle on the leftover cake so she could make a wish!
The older girls love for me to hang on to their tickets for them while they play games. Payson wouldn’t let me near his! haha. He held on to them with a death grip the whole time. Up until he went over to the ticket machines and put them all in and retrieved his receipt all by himself.
