Celebrating Reese

Since Reese has a summer birthday she never gets to celebrate her birthday at school.  She loves celebrating her school friends birthdays and comes home so excited for them at the end of the day. 

This week was Reese’s turn at school to bring snacks. It will be her last time bringing snacks in for the school year so I asked her teacher if we could have a “Celebrate Reese” day in lieu of a birthday celebration (that she wouldn’t get to otherwise have). She agreed and Reese was beyond excited.  We went out last week and bought Princess plates, napkins, cupcake liners, and an ‘R’ candle.

Yesterday afternoon we made the cupcakes.  She lined the pans and then looked at me and said, “This is so fun!”.

Reese was thrilled that Lance was going to work from home this morning so that he could join us at school to celebrate.  The kids were, obviously, excited about cupcakes and they all sang “Happy Birthday” to Reese while she had a huge grin on her face.

Sam had been eyeing the cupcakes since yesterday so when he was finally able to dig in, he didn’t hold back!

We had fun celebrating our little munchkin at her school today!  We are so blessed with a great school and a sweet teacher who didn’t mind a little disruption today!
