Since we celebrated her birthday party on Saturday, I didn't plan to do much for Serenity's actual birthday. I promised we'd make cupcakes together since we had birthday pancakes at her party. At the last minute though I headed out to the dollar tree to pick up a dozen mylar balloons. We filled her room with them so she'd wake up to a happy birthday surprise! She LOVED it! We woke up to her happy shouts of "Balloon! Balloon!" Donovan soon ran to join her and added his, "Boon! Boon!" He was mesmerized. I got a variety, so Serenity sorted her balloons into stars, flowers, circles, and then by color. =) And she counted them. So we had a little learning fun too.
