Birthday Part One: Celebrating at Preschool

Celebrating their birthday at preschool, with their teachers and classmates, was highly anticipated and a super fun morning for both Zoe ......

..... and for Ella.


They have looked forward to bringing the coveted Birthday Suitcase home since the start of the school year, and by the time it was their big day they knew exactly what special items they each wanted to bring in.  They both brought their new roller skates from Auntie Jen, Elise and Jack, and Ella also brought her President's of the United States of America place mat (also from Auntie Jen's family) and her monkey bank.  Zoe brought her little sheep from Grama Dianne that she just loves to pieces, and a little wind-up chick that Tom gave them before Easter last year : )

They also brought snack for the day.  Ella chose watermelon and Zoe chose green grapes, and together they picked out a chocolate rice krispy treats.

They loved getting their special Birthday Crowns and sharing the Birthday Mat while at school, and they LOVE LOVE LOVE saying that they are five years old now.  It was a fun kick-off to their birthday week.

Next up:  The Party .......
