I went through all of Lola’s birthday photos last night.
To be honest, it was a bit of a sad selection.
I’m a bit like that – I always have every intention of getting great photos at birthdays etc, but when it comes to the actual celebration, I just forget. I guess I get too caught up in the celebration and making sure all the other things are organised that I just forget about the camera.
There are so many memorable events that we do not have family photos for – sometimes it makes me feel kinda sad, and think that I will be better with photos in future – but I never seem to be able to follow through on that intention.
How about you? Do you have your family celebrations well documented??
Apart from poor Belle-bee being so sick, it was a really wonderful day. And I was also pleasantly introduced to one of the advantages of having three girls so close together – Ava has scraped all ideas of having a ladybug party, and has now decided she wants a fairy party too* – so all the decorations and planning ideas will be put to good use once again in October! Phew!
(*I’m pretty sure it was the visit to the Fairy shop to get a fairy cake topper that did it! When we got there both Ava and Lola needed to use the bathroom – and while we were in there Ava asked me in an excited whisper if the shop assistant was a real fairy!!)
Do you recycle birthday plans? I guess I always knew a day would come when they would all want the same princess/fairy/pink themed parties – I’m not sure how long it will last, but I have a feeling it’ll be a while. It’s quite nice not having to start from scratch every time but I do hope there are some out of the box parties in my future too!!
