Someone has a birthday coming up in a couple days:
And although she has been counting down the days with a big, glittery grin stretched across her face, I think someone ELSE is even more excited about the big day:
Grace is appalled that it is our "off" year for a party for Claire (we only do them every other year), so she's taken it in her hands to make things fun for her sister.
Yesterday everyone in our family found these notes on our pillows when we went to bed:
Grace has also spent some serious time convincing Claire that THIS is the year she MUST get her ears pierced (we let our girls decide any time after they're six...don't ask me why because Claire seems WAY too young!!). Claire was decidedly determined to wait 'til next year (even though she'll be six this year) until Grace put a little bug in her ear.
Hmmm, we'll see if she chickens out once she sees the "gun." Here's to hoping....
