Her actually birthday was Saturday, but we didn't celebrate it until Sunday with our family. We did however go to Thanksgiving Point's Scarecrow days. It was fun, Morgan got her face painted, played in the grass, and we even rode on the train!!!
Sunday's party was quite simple, but grandma found ways to make it special. She bought red helium filled balloons and with construction paper made Elmo faces on them. Grandma also knew that I wanted to make Morgan Elmo cupcakes so she found some online and I tried to copy what was done--I don 't think they came out that bad did they?
Thanks to Aunt Shell and Uncle Chad, Morgan got her favorite gift--a dancing Elmo doll--he does a song and dance similar to the YMCA, but its ELMO. However, she also liked her tea set, hopefully Grace will let me find time to play with Morgan. I can't ever remember playing things like that, growing up with two brothers but I think it would be fun.
It amazing to see how fast time flies. It feels like Morgan was just born the other day. She is a joy to be around, from the time she was a month old she started smiling and hasn't stopped. Now she is constantly chatting and telling us what she wants and doesn't want. Today for dinner she named off all the foods she wanted to eat except for what we were giving her. Oh how I love her. We really are blessed to have her in our family and Gracie is lucky to have her as an older sister!!
