We celebrated just with our little family and took time to focus on her and let her open a few presents.
Miss J on the other hand kept changing her mind about what she wanted. We went from a party at the bouncy house, to Micheal’s for a craft party, to a pool party, to traveling somewhere, etc. Finally she decided she wanted to invite only one of her friends over (so she came with her family). J picked out a cheesecake and I used some decorations I had. I found those green pinwheel fans at Walmart a while back for only $.29 for a pack of two! It must not have been a popular color lol. My mother in law sent some party supplies that matched perfectly. It worked out nice and she had a great time with her friend.
I have a feeling next year might be more of a “party” kind of year, but we will see. I think it will depend if we move somewhere new where we don’t know anyone or get close to family/friends. I’m just glad that they don’t need to have things a certain way, that they can be content with whatever can be done. I look forward to this new year of their lives, to see them continue to grow up and flourish and bond more of a friendship with their sisterhood.
