Bright and early we boola-boola the gifts. The theme seems to be purple and pink! A dress-up, matching Barbie (from the new Barbie movie coming out in a week- good times!), Dora water bottle, and a Strawberry Shortcake DVD. Olivia is very content.
Who doesn't love a good visit with a good Grandma? They had a fun time.
I didn't plan on doing a party, since Anika's took enough work..(fun work!), but Olivia kept talking about who was coming to her party the days before so we tossed out a few invites the day before for a low-key, hour-long, sprinkler party.
Something Olivia doesn't do- take naps. I guess all the fun really took a toll! She fell asleep downstairs about 5:30.
We brought her upstairs to wake her and she couldn't handle it and went back to sleep. Her sisters were blowing in her face, poking her, trying to wake her up so they could convince her McDonald's playplace was the destination for dinner (I wholly veto that idea! I can't tolerate the stinky, germy playland and will resist with all my power). Eventually she woke and we settled on sandwiches and playing at the school playground. After all, everyone's bellies were full of treats, especially Olivia's.
Happy Birthday Olivia! You are a sweet, fun girl with a great sense of humor. Just like your Mom!
