She has been looking forward to her birthday for months and she was so excited when it was FINALLY her day. She could hardly sleep the night before - this girl knows how to anticipate!
She woke up bright and early, naturally (although not much brighter and earlier than normal) and got right down to present business. We got her lots of little things so she'd have more to open, since that's probably her favorite part of the whole affair. She immediately changed into her new outfit and birthday crown, and had a delicious breakfast of peaches, strawberries, blueberries, and cream! She was very kind and let the boys share her presents and breakfast. She is one that enjoys experiencing things with others, and this is a good example of her selflessness. She knew it would be fun to share the experience of opening her gifts with Jack, and I think that's very sweet.
Isn't she sunshiney? : ) I love that Stockton got in on the action too.
She was so excited to have a party - she wasn't specific in what she wanted at the party, she was just adamant that there be a party. So a party she had! We invited church friends over for "cake for breakfast" and they played inside and outside and people brought breakfasty things and it satisfied Natalie's desires for a party.
Waiting patiently for people to come, then getting super excited when she saw someone park!
Then we headed over to Austin's office to partake in their party for Natalie, which was also a going-to-school celebration. Roy told her to "stand there and let us sing to you," and her face and posture made me laugh hahaha.
We came home so Jack could take a nap. Stockton was downstairs watching a movie but then came up with these shoes on and made Natalie and I giggle.
Then, we picked Daddy up from work and headed over to Grandma and Grandpa's house! She was thrilled to have a THIRD party of the day and loved opening more presents. We ate the THIRD cake (I didn't even have a bite, I was caked out) and then headed out to the traditional Lost in Fun birthday outing.
An outfit change was necessary - too many cute clothes to choose from! Doesn't she look like a little angel?
These are randomly the only pictures I have at LiF....they had a great time and the Beddeses even came with their twins and Taft (yay!) so Natalie felt extra celebrated.
Happy birthday to our wonderful Natsby. She's already looking forward to next year!
