Peyton's Birthday Weekend!












(Her reaction when she realized her gift is tickets to see Shin Lim!)

Yes. We celebrated Peyton Rose all weekend. Because that is how you celebrate the one who plans and prepares and enjoys everyone else's birthdays all year long. Peyton is the sweetest soul ever, and so deserved a special celebration just for her.

We had a small family dinner with presents and her favorite ever Cheesecake Factory Oreo Cheesecake! Marian was kind enough to deliver it here and totally surprised Peyton! Saturday after Mass, we went to dinner at one of her favorite pizza places, and then to the movies.

Sunday was a favorite kind of day for all of us. It was raining, so we had a pajamas, movie, boardgame, and Chinese takeout kind of day. The sun did come out later in the afternoon and we were able to enjoy some fun outside before Marian had to head back to the city. 

Happy Birthday, Peyton Rose!
We love you!
