Natalie turned 5 on Dec 19th! Grandma and Grandpa came into town for her birthday (that marks six y ears in a row now!)
We celebrated with some friends from preschool at a pottery place – with cupcake decorating of course! I’m uploading these pics from my phone so they are totally out of order.
Below is Natalie’s bestie Nuala – I anticipate a lot of FaceTime calls in the coming months. They share a mutual love for Elsa, being creative, little dolls, being silly and arguing over their common interests.
Before the party, Natalie and I had a relaxing time getting pedicures. Well, pedicures and hot chocolate. Well, actually, pedicures, hot chocolate and manicures.
Above is Alison helping Elliott frosting a cupcake – with Natalie and Vivi faring very well on their own.
We are so blessed to have so many great friends in Chicago – we’ll miss you all!
