Party Time!

You might not know this about us, but we are an incredibly cool family. We are the kind of peeps that throw a party on a MONDAY! Yeah, you heard me right. I even have the pictures to prove it. In an effort to keep Lily in her own bed, and keep me in MY own bed, I told her that if she managed to sleep BY HERSELF IN HER OWN BED FOR FIVE NIGHTS IN A ROW that we would have a party. We kept track with smiley faces (that she decided needed bodies and clothing colored by her.) Artists we are not. Anyway, it made every morning fun! She woke up the FIFTH morning (Monday) and the first words out of her mouth were "Five nights in a row! Yay! Party!!!" So, I asked her what she would need for said party. Her response: "Ta-reats...suckers, m&m's and smarties." Hmmm...I told her I would take her shopping and we could figure it out as we went along. So, off we went. I managed to avoid the candy aisle and opted for party hats and blowers, balloons, and a cake. She was beyond excited. We had to wait for daddy to get home from work to get the party started, and truth be told, it only lasted about 15 minutes. But, she was happy as a clam. We are proud of our big girl. She has come a long way, baby.
And, she hasn't gone back to her old ways now that the party is over. (that was a fear of mine)









Party on!!!!
