Happy Birthday, Poesy

Happy Birthday, Poesy
If you follow me on Instagram, you probably already know that last week was birthday week in our house.  My birthday is on the 6th and Poe's is on the 10th, so this specific week in January always keeps us busy-busy.  We were supposed to be out of town on Poesy's birthday for a gymnastics meet this year, but Hope ended up getting a stomach bug a couple days before and had to miss.  For Poe, this meant two days of celebration instead of just one!

We started the day with birthday pancakes and taking care of sister.  Poesy's a spunky little gal, but can be very nurturing as well.  She spent half of the day in bed with Hope watching Powerpuff Girls.  Once Hope started rallying, we took Poesy for a special bday cupcake, watched her unwrap her gifts, and ended the day at Chuck E Cheese and her favorite Japanese restaurant.  Birthday #1 was a perfect Poesy day.

On the second day, we threw Poesy a party with eight of her friends and their parents.  It was a lot of people to fit in our house, but it was a crazy/fun/chaotic time.  We played freeze dance, taped down hopscotch, and ate our weight in strawberry cake.  It was a very gloomy day outside, so thank goodness for all the different camera options.  My DSLR couldn't keep up with the low lighting for most of the party, so I snapped tons of iPhone photos, Instax photos, and even borrowed some from friends (thanks Doren and Michelle!).

Happy Birthday, Poesy
Happy 4th birthday, little Poe.  I can't believe how quickly time has passed!

  1. Love the colorful photos! I also love the idea of a good old-fashioned birthday party at home. (Especially when I think of how some communities get nearly competitive about how big of a party to have. Blah.)

    Happy birthday, Poe and Katie!
