February birthdays

Last night we celebrated our 2 February birthdays.

Anna is 10 and Lea is 2

Cake and presents........it was a nice simple family party.

This is Anna's year for a party and we've been talking about it for weeks.

She thought it would be fun to have a Hawaiian luau.
We all totally went along with it, but we told her she couldn't have it until next weekend for several reasons.
Little did she know we had a completely different plan!

This morning 10 of her friends came into her room bright and early to wake her up and surprise her.

She was completely surprised (which is especially funny because her 3 older sisters all had surprise breakfast parties at this age!).

minus 1 little girl and Annalisa

group hug with Anna in the middle!

We had a delicious breakfast of chocolate chip belgian waffles with strawberries & whipped cream.  We even had a hot chocolate station.  Everything was fancy and perfect for 13 cute girls (including Adri and Mars).

She got lots of cute girly presents - they all know Anna so well!
Annalisa was all smiles and giggles.

It was a total family affair...... Tanner decorated the kitchen with streamers and a banner (I won't even complain that he used duct tape!), Corina made the waffles, Akayla did Anna & Mariah's hair, Adri took care of the little girls, Dave was taking videos, and I was just trying to make everything run smoothly.

When we were all stuffed we piled all the girls into the suburban and headed off to school.  It's a good thing we have extra seats!

good things:
sugar rush in the morning
I didn't run out of gas on the way to school
excited little girlies

Thank you so much! Taylor had such a great time and loved surprising Anna. Tay even showed exactly what her face looked like when they woke her up. It was so funny. What a special day and a special mom.
