Halia turned three on Friday and we had a lovely day together as a family, with Michael returning home from a week away that afternoon. She was old enough to ask for a party this year, so we hosted that today. There was a balloon forest, a clown, chocolate cupcakes with pink frosting (gluten-free and vegan, and absolutely delicious, natch), dancing, giggling, and balloon sword fights.
There are days when the girls are at each others’ throats all day long. And there are days where they are inseparable best of friends. Here’s what they were doing today while waiting for the first party guests to arrive. It might be a bit long for those of us used to 30-second clips, but the whole thing makes me smile.
I didn’t know Michael was filming, or I’d have stopped putting dishes away. No, I wouldn’t, but I’d have been quieter about it. Oh, and it was Jade who put The Four Seasons in the CD player, by the way.
