Happy Birthday Cinderella AND Uncle Bubby!!!

June Bdays Collage words

This day. This very special day. THIS was one of my biggest motivations for coming down RIGHT NOW. To Texas. In the Summertime. Haha! We haven’t gotten to spend a birthday with Michael in a very long time. He had never even met Cinderella until a couple days ago. And they both share the same birthday!!! I thought it would be incredibly special to celebrate their birthdays together, this time.

Aunt Sandra flew into town this morning to be here to mark the occasion as well. I was so excited to see her. It had been five years since the last time we got to see each other. We are very close. She was like a second Mom to me growing up…and still is. Awwww Sisters.

It was her first time meeting Cinderella as well. Mom, Cinderella and I were able to sneak over to the store just before her plane landed. We picked up a chocolate cake, a balloon for each of the birthday kids and a couple last minute items for the party and dinner.

I had purchased Cindy a How To Train Your Dragon multipack of dragons a few days prior, and was able to sneak one of the Toothless dragons out of the box for the cake. I figured she would love that. (I was right.) I had to pull a MacGuyver and light a birthday candle with the electric stove…in order to light the rest of the candles. I guess that is the only downside to no longer being a smoker…I never have a lighter anymore.

There was 28 + 4 candles on the cake. We were fairly certain we were gonna burn the place down. But one well (off-key) sung Happy Birthday song later, and they were successfully blown out by Uncle Bubby and Cinderella…and we never had to call the Fire Department.

He was obsessed with The Gremlins when we were kids.

It didn’t take long before Cindy busted her Dragons out of the packaging and set to work playing with them.

Uncle Bubby made Cinderella a Jack Skellington doll out of tape. He is mad talented when it comes to duct tape!

I’m so glad we got to be here to celebrate their birthday together. It is something I will always looks back on with fond memories. It was a wonderful day with my family together. Happy 28th Birthday Bubby. Happy 4th Birthday Baby Girl. I love you both so much.

Cinderella’s 2nd Birthday in Virginia

Cinderella’s 3rd Birthday in New Mexico

So to recap, Cindy was born and celebrated her 1st birthday in Colorado, her 2nd in Virginia, her 3rd in New Mexico and her 4th in Texas.

How cool would it be to celebrate her birthday in a different state every year?
