We began celebrating Issa's birthday this weekend! My family all flew in Friday for the occasion, and much fun was had by all.
After dinner out on Friday, Issa and Nana got to work on her cake:
Saturday morning, we girls took Issa shopping. She wanted to check out a new line of Disney clothes, and Nana and Papa thought that taking her shopping might be a bit easier than picking clothes for her on their own. We had a blast. Issa has a quirky sense of style, but she was so fun! She's not an easy one to fit, but she never got fussed when things didn't work. We just kept trying, and we all laughed when she gave pants the jump test to see if they would stay up.
When we got home, Nana and Issa got to work on the cake again:
With the cake finished, Issa provided us with a fashion show of her finds from the morning, and the best big brother proclaimed everything, "stylish:"
So was Issa:
Evan just couldn't wait to give Issa his gifts:
The rest of the evening was spent enjoying cake and being together. Sunday and Monday offered more of the same. Playing Uno, playing outside, building Legos, face painting, and doing art projects:
