Jane: "Maybe next year I'll have a homemade party. Wait, are we going to be here next year?"
Mom: "I"m not sure. What do you mean?"
Jane: "I think I've had my birthday at a different place each year."
That is so sad when your 6 year old knows how much we've moved. But sure enough she has had her birthday at 6 different places.
Here they are in pictures:
1 YEAR OLD!!
When she turned 1 we were living at Apple Honey Apartments in Midvale.
I threw this picture in because my mom is in it and we celebrated Jane's birthday there at her house with my BIG family (I miss them)
Smashing the 1 year old cake
SHE TURNS 2!!
When Jane turned 2 we were living in my sister, Dawn's basement. Her son Mackay and Jane's birthday are a day apart so they have had to celebrate them together for the last 5 years (along with Uncle Joshie)
Dawn hired a clown to come for their birthdays. Again, the whole family was there.
When Jane turned 3 we were living in CreekView Apartments in Midvale. We celebrated her family party at my mom's house.
Jane had a few friends she had met so we had a little Princess Party in our apartment.
Cousins came to help.
We made princess crowns and painted our fingernails.
When Jane turned 4 we had finally bought our house in Lehi, UT.
Here we are again at my mom's house for Jane's family party. I love to see my mom in the background.
Because we were in a new place with new friends, we recycled the princess party and used it again. Luckily she still fit into her Jasmine costume.
MAN ALIVE--JANE IS 5!!
When Jane turned 5 we were in transition. Brett had already moved to Indiana and the rest of us were living with my dad. Our house sold fast so we spent 2 months in Draper until Brett moved us out here with him.
Jane invited her best friend Emma to Disney On Ice for her birthday.
She wanted to go to IHop for the pancake faces.
AND NOW SHE'S 6!!
She chose to go to Build-A-Bear and cross her fingers that we will be here next year so she can invite ALL her friends. Life doesn't always work out the way we plan and she's such a trooper. I'm sure whatever comes her way she will embrace it with a smile like she always does.
We are so proud of you Janey Bug!!
Happy 6th Birthday!!!
