Then, I couldn't find snowflakes, Frozen plates and napkins, or Elsa anywhere! It is funny looking back. I think everyone with a little girl Jesse's age was trying to find the same things. In the end, blue and pink plates were just fine. I found a few snowflakes on Amazon, and most importantly, I found Elsa and Anna.
This birthday was an important one I thought. I have a memory of my own birthday party around this age. I remember a small group of my Kindergarten friends at our home. My Mom went with a Strawberry Shortcake theme (the best ever at that time of my life). I remember Strawberry Shortcake pencils and games and lots of laughter. It seemed so perfect to me. I know she did everything in her power to make that day extra special. She created birthday magic for me, and I will never forget it.
Of course, I wanted to create the same birthday magic for Jesse. I could see it in her eyes throughout the entire party and looking back at these photos, I am sure she felt it too. I know every single birthday will not involve live princesses and dancing and magic tricks, but this one will be one to remember.
I love you with all my heart Jesse. In Olaf's words…some people are worth melting for.
