We decided to do a low-key family gathering for Essie's real birthday. Both sets of grandparents and her cousin Haley came over to celebrate. We ordered pizza and Nana made an adorable Cookie Monster Cake. We forgot to buy candles for her cake so she blew out two pillar candles! She loved it and kept asking us for "more" so we did it three times! She opened gifts and her favorite hands down were some Disney Princess figurine sets. Meemaw made her a beautiful princess quilt for her new bedroom and her peepaw made her an amazing princess tower shelf for her new dolls. She loved opening gifts so much that she shreiked and screamed and said "OH MY" at each present!
