Celebrating March


     March is a birthday month here!  Marianna turned 9, & Clay turned 4.  I don't even know where to begin!  It seemed like we spent all month celebrating!  We've definitely went out more times than usual.  Marianna requested her favorite Mexican restaurant in honor of her birthday, adopted Prince Charming (our new kitten) on the her actual big day, partied large with the extended family the next day in honor of our sweet cousin's 1st ever birthday, partied small the weekend between the 2 birthdays before traveling to see the Disney on Ice show, ate our favorite Japanese on the way home that night with more singing & chicken dance craziness, celebrated with Clay's classmates Lego ninja style on his actual birthday, made another trip for Clay to the same Mexican restaurant later for his big day...want me to go on?  Lol  Plus we made a few trips to nearby towns to spend birthday $ from various sources that absolutely seemed to have been burning a whole in their pockets.  Therefore, March has marched right by us in the midst of all these celebrations.  It was fun though!  They must know they are both a special part of our family.  The whole month seemed to be created just for them!  Both can surely be quite a mess but bring a special JOY to our home as well!        
      As usual, my awesome Aunt EE made their cakes.  That is such a huge blessing.  Marianna requested a Barbie cake.  Of course Clay had Ninjago.  They were super excited & enjoyed every minute of it!  A big thanks is extended to Meme & Papa for a great birthday & the rink side TICKETS TO DISNEY ON ICE for your whole family too!  We cherish your great love & how big you show it.  Seeing the delight in each little one's eyes as all the cousins crowd together to enjoy the show was priceless.  $ cannot buy how you love us deep & the time spent making us a priority reflects your heart.  :)
