A birthday package from Popo and Gong Gong arrived yesterday, complete with an amazing, homemade birthday banner to be used for many, many birthdays. My favorite part is the addition of photos from each of her birthdays thus far printed onto the fabric under the number. That instantly brought tears to my eyes to see how much this amazing kid has grown. We put it up right away because it's too beautiful to only have up one day a year.
And then there's Sojo, getting ready for her party on Saturday. One of the activities she wants is to do tricks, so we thought we'd help her do a little disappearing magic act. To get ready, we set up the stuffed animals as the audience, used a bedsheet to cover the stairwell and I practiced disappearing (aka crawling up the stairs out of sight while abracadabra is being said). Simple and fun, and I have a feeling lots of the little ones will want to be 'disappeared' on Saturday.
