favorite birthdays...

so i know. 
i am excited for my birthday.

 but a lot of that love and excitement is because of my parents. 
they played a pretty big part in why i love birthdays so much


every year my dad would come home with a bouquet of red roses
and now... 
he still makes sure to send them to me wherever i am.
i think father-daughter tradition's like that are important

and my mommy.
please.
the lady is a birthday party planning extraordinaire.
rented moon bounces, gift bags, cakes, clowns, themed parties.  she did it all

some favorite parties of mine... 
 

1. the party where we whip cream pied each other in the face

2.  murder mystery party... where tapes with pre recorded messages were sent out as invites, we dressed as different characters and went around the house searching for homemade clues... 
ending with my dad. in the bathroom.  stabbed to death.  poor guy.

3. tea party, with all my little girlfriends, in our pretty dresses, with my parents as the maid and butler


the things parents do for their kids!

Aww you were (and still are) so cute! And tapes with recorded messages as invitations!? That is going above and beyond :)

I also had a tea party one year for my birthday and I swear we could have been twins. Same type of dress and same type of flower head band. Great minds think alike ;)
