In our family, it also means a lot of celebrating because my brother, his beautiful wife Bec, and I are all September babies! Not only that, but we also celebrate Chilean Independence Day on the 18th of September too. So technically, it’s also Chile’s birthday in September. This is the reason our birthday decorations were blue, white and red themed when we celebrated over the weekend.
I hope you enjoy the pictures – the following images were taken by my beautiful sister Nicole :)
I’m sharing this following picture because it demonstrates the terrible day I was having prior to the party. I fell over after church (in front of quite a few people) and grazed my knee pretty badly. I ended up crying when I got to my parents house, not because I hurt my knee, but because I ruined the brand new shoes I was wearing. Shoes which had been given to me by my mum for my birthday. I felt so bad that I ruined them…but mum did a pretty good job of fixing them up :)
On top of this, I cut my finger while slicing tomatoes (you can see the bandaid on my finger in the picture too). It just wasn’t my day.
And apparently this is how I react when I accidentally see the price on one of my gifts.
But spending time with my lovely family made me feel a whole lot better.
Especially when I got to play with my brother’s new present…a very squishy fake mouse.
