And even though the parties were separate, they still sat by each other's side when it came time for presents!
I think my favorite gifts were little Precious Moments Princess statues - Sam got Ariel and Marlie Cinderella. It's like a grown up keepsake and rememberance of a time I think is over . . . We are moving on from princesses . . .
And speaking of moving on . . . It was so great to see this group of girls!
There were a couple new friends, but most Marlie has known since kindergarten. I have a twinge of guilt in me for moving her - but I think it's more about me than her. She will adjust just fine - but it hits me weird because I was exactly her age when my family moved. Who knows, maybe we will find our place in Gallatin . . .
They both had a fun and exhausting day - but birthday season is over!!
