'Tis the Season

'Tis the season for birthday parties galore! 

Two sweet girls celebrated their birthdays this weekend. (The second party will be featured in upcoming blog.)

Sweet Madeline celebrated her 4th birthday.

Madeline's mother, Amanda, and I have worked together for years. In fact, we were both pregnant at the same time and Chloe and Madeline were born only a week apart. However, Chloe and Madeline have only had one brief meeting when our family happened to run into their family as we were arriving and they were leaving the zoo.

I am happy to report that the girls got along famously! (I've always wanted to use "famously" in a sentence.) Since there were actually four people expecting in our office at the same time, people would jokingly say that there was "something in the water." Well, you could tell that these two were spawned from the same water. 

They had the best time jumping on the trampoline...

...and torturing playing with kitty.

And oh, the belly laughs (my favorite kind)!

Then, it was time for pizza and cake! I loved the colorful theme!

I had to throw in this one. The girls' fake smiles were so cute! Can you tell that they've posed for a picture a time or two?!

I so wish that this last picture wasn't blurry. This one was my favorite from the day.

The girls had a great "first" meeting. We had to assure each of the girls that they would be meeting again soon as Chloe was leaving. It was so sweet.

Happy Birthday, Madeline!!!


  1. Such happy young faces. Imagine the possibility of Chloe and Madeline working together at the RSA in years to come It could be a legacy.
