Seeing as how Madeleine’s major surgery was so close to her birthday, my plans for an elaborate birthday party this year were foiled. Doh! So, instead, we had a small brunch with just a few folks. My parents had planned a trip out to Seattle for the weekend before her birthday before the surgery, so once we knew about the surgery and her inability to go to daycare for a while my mom extended the trip on both ends so she could help out. But this meant that my dad would fly out for only a couple of days in the middle of my mom’s trip. I know, confusing! LOL!
And thanks to the distraction of the surgery and recovery, I was literally planning it the day before. Oye! And here are the photos. 🙂
Say a big welcome to our party guests:
One present was very difficult to wrap:
What could possibly be next, but cake! And since it was brunch, I just did cupcakes. 10 am is too early for a full fledged cake.
Thanks to those who were able to come celebrate with us! Madeleine had a great time. And next year will have to be a big bash, planned well in advance, where she can run and romp and play.
