One of Luna's classmates, Santiago and his younger brother Sebastian, hosted a graduation party at their home. It was so cute with all the props, cake and a pinata! The girls had a great time and so sad this chapter of Luna's life is over, but looking forward to new adventures.
I can't believe my baby turned 3 this month! We celebrated with her class a few days early on the 19th with cupcakes. Then on the 23rd she had her birthday celebration! She opened presents: a new dress-up wardrobe set, Anna Coronation dress, books, and clothes. Then she had her bday donut, followed by a trip to Build a Bear to put her Paci (she only sleeps with it) inside a bear and then dinner at Kaze's Japanese Steakhouse. She wanted to go to a place like Luna did, Benihana's, but since we were just there decided to go to Kaze's where the food is even better and cheaper. Oh and side note here, the paci did not go over well that night. Poor thing was up until 12am and we finally caved and gave her a paci. She hates the bear too, thinks it stole her paci. This was a much better idea for Luna and worked instantly with her. Sigh. Otherwise Belle had a fun birthday!!
Wow, the last day of school was so sentimental and tearful for me! I swear it was just the other day Luna was starting her first day of preschool at Greenland Hills as a 2.3 year old child! And Belle was in my infant carrier as an almost 3 month old baby dropping Luna off with me. Now, 3 years later she is graduating :( It was also super sentimental because this was the first year both girls were in school there together! Such an amazing year with their friends, teachers and staff! I loved dropping and picking the girls up, I am really going to miss their last year together there. I teared up driving them to school that day as I knew it would be the last, and I teared up at pick up too. Also because most of Luna's friends are all going to different schools next year! Lakewood, Stonewall Jackson, Mata, Hexter, Highland Park Day School, WRE, Robert E Lee and one moving to Frisco. Luna will be the only one going to Highlander School but luckily she already knows a few area kids going there (Tessa, Jake and Laura).
They had graduation that evening where all of the families were invited and each class performed a song. We all had a potluck family dinner and the kids played in the bounce house. I just love the family feel of Greenland Hills and glad Belle will be returning there in the Fall!
We celebrated Luna's birthday at school the day before on her actual birthday, the 13th. Then the morning of, we skipped school and started with pancakes for breakfast, opening presents, a trip to Toys R Us, lunch at Chocolate Angel and then dinner with our family at Benihana's! She was super excited to get her new Frozen bicycle, Elsa's Coronation dress, lots of books and a Frozen Lego Set!
Luna and Belle have both been taking ballet/tap at Studio B where Luna took last year. Unfortunately for this momma, they had classes on different days this year but we all still enjoyed it! Luna was able to take with her friend Jillian and Belle had Isla, Evelyn and Annabelle in her class. The 2/3's had their recitals on the 9th and then Luna had hers with the big girls on May 16th and was it big! I felt like I was dropping off at a teenager's recital in downtown Dallas! Both girls did a great job and so glad I have little girls to enjoy these moments!
This year we decided again to celebrate the girls' birthdays together! They said they had already done the Frozen theme, so they wanted a Princess themed party. All Disney Princesses AND Anna and Elsa. We also made it a Pirate/Knight party for the boys. So we booked it at the Lake Highlands Rec Center Gym which we love how the price includes 2 bounce houses, and also booked a face painter. The kids had a blast!! The favors were crowns, with princess rings and wands for the girls and boys had inflatable swords (you can see them in the last picture behind the boys)! I served Ariel's Goldfish, Cinderella Pizza, Snow White Apples, and Aurora Princess Popcorn. The girls also each had their own princess cake, Belle had Rapunzel and Luna had Cinderella. Belle also was dressed as none other than Princess Belle and Luna wore her new Cinderella dress (from the new movie). We had so much fun and so many kids, like 50 and their parents :)
We started this blog about 'nothing' a couple of years ago, but now it has turned into a blog about our precious daughter Luna, born on May 13, 2010! And then we welcomed baby Belle, 2 years later on May 23rd, 2012.
