Our Fourth of July was spent celebrating Secily! The day was Cinderella themed (of course, since she "really likes Cinderella best"....)
We had a little family party -
Way to cut the cake Uncle Jeff!
What's a third birthday without a little tea party with Grandma!? Complete with the new adorable tea table - thanks Grandma & Grandpa!
And, of course...games.
Now - when you were a child, did you ever think to yourself "it would be SO FUN to play in______!" fill in the blank with whatever you thought may be wild & crazy & fun - like a bathtub full of spaghetti, or a pool of pudding, or, maybe, just maybe............a room full of shredded paper??? This would have been your lucky day!
You see, Secily doesn't have just any Dad....she has Ryan. And, Ryan will commit to something that he thinks will be fun for the kids - even if it is the most. random. thing. ever. So, after about 4 years of saving shredded paper, we were able to play the long awaited, and highly anticipated game: "Find the Princess in the Paper".
Of course, the kids LOVED it.
(we wound up having to find stuffed animals in the paper, because the princesses were too small and hard to find!)
Thankfully Secily's grand parents are good sports too!
Happy Birthday Secily! We love you so much - your strong will, your sense of humor, your sweet smile, your opinions on fashion (already!). You are such a joy to us.
