The Best of Times, The Worst of Times

Yesterday we celebrated Macey's third birthday. She had a great time being a Birthday Princess! She was able to pick out what she wanted for breakfast, she got a Princess Badge to wear at school, the kids sang to her at school and she got to eat yummy pizza with the Moore Family and they gave her presents! Even though Garry was gone, she had a good day. It was all too much and she told me at 7:10 that she was TIRED.

It was the best of times.

But for someone, it was the worst of times. Poor Emma had a really hard time. Macey got to pick the songs for morning devotional (she chose "Happy Birthday", I thought that was really cute) she got to open the door on the way to school, she got a Princess Badge, and then to top it off, she got presents. It was all too much for a girl who does not understand that EVERYONE gets a birthday once a year, you just have to wait until yours rolls around. I even caught her singing Happy Birthday to herself.

For her, truly, it was the worst of times.

Tell Emma that the "older" Sister Volk thinks that it is so sweet how she waits for the "younger" Sister Volk to go to Primary. That is something that she has all to herself EVERY Sunday!
