Yesterday was a memory filled day.
Sean and I are pretty committed to family traditions and began some yesterday for Kensington's birthday.
I'm sure that she will, at some point, think that at our daily/weekly/monthly/yearly traditions and routines are silly/"lame"/dated, but I believe it is a wonderful way to celebrate the family God has given us. Traditions are proven to bring families closer, heal wounds and give children a sense of security, stability and pride for their family unit. Most importantly, each holiday and event can be used as an opportunity to dwell in God's goodness in so many different ways. Simple.
We started the day with making Kensington a special breakfast. French toast, sausage, hash browns and more!
We played and watched her favorite show-OSWALD.
We went for a birthday lunch at one of our favorite fast food restaurants.
And she got the best present of all–a balloon!
We bought her a vintage cake topper and paper carousel that we plan on bringing out each year during celebration times….
Family came over in the evening and we spent the night eating, chatting, opening presents and watching Miss K explore frosting. Here are a few pictures of the festivities.
Happy Birthday again, Miss K. We are really excited for the next year and all it has to bring for you, our family and friends.
