Happy 6th Birthday Abby!

After six long months of planning and waiting, I FINALLY turned SIX and got to have my carrot party! I came up with the idea all on my own, and mommy had a fun time planning for it! Unfortunately, our cousin Liam was pretty sick, so they couldn’t come for the big party weekend, so we decided to split our celebration in two parts, and we will be having my family carrot party next weekend instead. Mommy still knew we needed to celebrate with all of the carrot decorations, so she set it all up for me for a special breakfast celebration instead! We made a special carrot banner, carrot garland, and decorated the house & table in all orange and green! Even my presents were wrapped in orange and green! Mor-Mor sent us a box of carrot goodies that she had saved over the years from Mommy’s Aunt Jean and Uncle Paul’s collection and we had fun using them for decorations! We have even more to bring out next weekend when everyone comes for our special carrot lunch! Thanks for making my dreams of a carrot party come true… and happy birthday to me!!!

Mommy & Daddy decorated the outside of my bedroom door with orange and green balloons the night before so I had balloons flying everywhere when I woke up in the morning!
