And We Celebrated

We didn’t do too much today. A needed day of rest to recuperate from party planning and party festivities, as well as nursing this cold that’s still lingering around. With the big birthday behind us, we’re looking forward now. Onto Christmas! And we started with this…

I told her it helps to stand back to find the empty spots on the tree for more ornaments. It kind of worked. But she still put 2 giant snowflake ornaments practically on top of one another (which I may or may not have fixed after she went to bed), and we may have argued about who was going to hang the little red glass star (my favourite). But I hoisted her up, she placed the angel on top…and she was a happy girl.

Yesterday was Declan’s birthday party. We had a really good time, our house filled with amazing family and friends. The birthday boy woke up very early, so I was worried his late afternoon party could be a tired disaster, but he had an impressive 3 hour nap before the party started and woke up just in time to greet our guests.

And then there was cake!

Speaking of celebrating…the previous weekend we traveled to Vancouver to attend our very first LPBC (Little People of BC) Christmas party. We stayed with another LPBC family, who was also hosting the party at their house. It was so nice to spend some time with them, getting to know their family better, and the party was great too. It’s such an amazing group of people. On the one hand, I get to meet and chat with other POLPs, comparing ‘stories’ and hearing about how things were for their kids, some 20-30 years ago. And on the other hand, it’s so nice seeing all of the kids, of various ages. Simply invaluable to me, to Makenna, and to Declan. My heart is happy knowing that he is going to be able to grow up knowing other kids ‘like him’ and having older role models to look up to as well.

And now my bed is calling my name, but first I must package up the 2 dozen muffins I made tonight (and forgot I had to make!) for pre-school tomorrow.
