Tillie's birthday #3

Tillie has waited for 6 months from all her brothers and sisters birthdays for her's to come. Today is the day we celebrated Tillie's birthday. Can't believe how fast time flies.

This year, I decided to do a princess theme type birthday. I made the castle out of postage wrap paper. I cut out extra pieces for the bricks. It didn't take me long - maybe a couple of hours (after the kids were asleep).


Opening a present from Grandma Sherrie - she couldn't make it for Tillie's birthday, so she sent her gift in the mail.

 Happy Birthday, Mathilda! 3 years old.

In October of last year (2011), we decided that Gabi needed to have her tonsils removed. She had a hard time breathing when she slept or ate.

She was nervous and uncertain what would happen, but she did great before and during surgery and did awesome recovering.

before surgery:

 there was a giant fish tank in the waiting area that Gabi really liked

After surgery:

Gabi got this bear and cow after her surgery for being a wonderful patient.

It's been a while since a post (Halloween) and I'm a little embarrassed that I have let that much time go by. So with that being said, here is a latest post...

Gabi and Tillie managed to find some scissors. Gabi helped Tillie get a new hair cut...



Tillie likes it. She was a little nervous while getting in fixed cut.
