It began with a visit from Aunt KK which we all loved! She joined us for Anna's favorite birthday meal which this year was hamburgers and hotdogs on the grill. This girl loves hotdogs and actually ate 3 hotdogs on this particular night. As you can see from the picture she loved being the center of attention and still on a daily basis says "Happy Birthday ME" to get a good laugh out of all of us. She was convinced for about 2 days that she was 3 1/2 but now is finally settling on the fact that she is 2, and boy does her attitude match that age!
Next up came sweet Lucy. We began the celebration the night before with a taco dinner of her choice and had Gannie in town to join in the festivities. Then on her birthday day I got to go to school to have lunch with her and participate in her classroom, reading a story to everyone. As a 6 year old she feels so old to us, especially since she lost her first tooth just a few days after turning 6.
Last but not least came sweet Ellie. To be honest we are usually all birthday out by the time it gets to Ellie but this year we kept up the momentum by going to the zoo the day before since Lucy had a day off of school. It was fun to go the zoo as a family and it help keep us in the celebration mindset. Ellie's choice dinner was spaghetti and meatballs and we saved the gifts that Aunt Curly sent in the mail to open then, making it extra fun.
And just for fun I will post the cute poem my very talented husband wrote for their birthdays. This has turned out to be a McCann tradition now and something the girls look forward to hearing what their daddy wrote about them.
