Today is Caleb's 5th birthday, and this morning his little sister was born! What are the chances of having a shared birthday? Typically we'd be in Chicago to celebrate, but we'll be there tomorrow! Sarah ended up having a C-section since they couldn't get the baby turned around. Hannah was 7#, and everyone is doing well. I'm anxious to get there!
Because Caleb was so disappointed not to see the polar bears when we went to see the Lincoln Park Zoo Lights, I decided on a skating bear for his birthday card.
The polar bear and die are from My Favorite Things, "Polar Bear Pals." About the same time, I ordered the Tim Holtz stencil for the trees which worked out perfectly with the water colored bear and "pond." I used some Stickles Glitter Glue to create the snowy hills. You can't really see it, but the polar bear is attached to an Action Wobbles so that when you touch him, he bounces up and down a bit.
The inside greeting reads, " Have a BEARY good birthday," a pretty appropriate pun for a five year old. I hope he likes the skating bear. There will be a birthday celebration tomorrow night with Grandma and Grandpa, and a third celebration later on as Sarah and Adam have scheduled his "friends" party for mid-January when all four of his grandparents will be in town.
