While Hadley's "party" day was Monday, we chose to celebrate her actual day of birth with our family on Tuesday, March 13.
Per tradition, Babe came downstairs to find her very special birthday balloons waiting for her at the table.
She also entered the kitchen to the sound of her very own "Princess mix" on the iPod, a gift from Ben and me. Although, in the spirit of full disclosure, I'm not sure if the downloads were more for us or for her...we've all gotten quite a kick out of some old school Disney songs around here.
Donuts were also on the breakfast menu for the big day, and Haddie A. chose to wear her brand new "Georgia" dress from her friend Makenzie.
After school and work and Ms. Ginnell's, we headed out to Chick-fil-A to finish the celebration we began earlier in the day. Daddy made Babe her very own "Hortie" birthday cake...it was a huge hit!
Hadley enjoyed opening her gifts from our family, too! Princesses continued to be the theme of the day, much to the delight of the birthday girl.
We shared cake with our family and all of our wonderful Chick-fil-A friends and even got to sample the new brownies that will be on the menu soon.
Once again, Happy, Happy Birthday, Baby H!
