My Triplet Ballerinas: Triplet Birthdays
My triplet ballerinas are my grand-daughters, Makenna, Jaeli and Maysie.
The triplets were born on July 2nd, 2008, so when the Fourth of July came around each year, we knew it was about time for another birthday and a big combined birthday party. Before the triplets started school, it was mostly just family at their birthday parties. Once they started school though, the triplets would each invite a couple school friends (along with their cousins and family friends) to their combined theme birthday party.
In 2013, when the triplets turned 5 years old, Rapunzel came to visit with her long, blonde hair and her signature purple dress. Since they have a summer birthday, a backyard Pool Party Birthday was needed in 2014 when they turned 6 years old. In 2015, when they turned 7 years old, it was a Princess Birthday Party inspired by a trip to Disney World earlier that summer. There were a lot of Disney princesses around that year including Makenna’s “Ariel”, Jaeli’s “Belle” (of course, since they both love to read!) and Maysie’s “Cinderella”. In 2016, when the triplets turned 8 years old, they discovered American Girl dolls so they had an American Girl Tea Party with all their friends and any doll they wanted to bring. In 2017, when they turned 9 years old, it was a Rainbow and Unicorns Birthday Party with “horn hairdos” and t-shirts that said “Happier than a unicorn eating cupcakes on a rainbow!” In 2018, when the triplets turned 10 years old, they had a Fashion Show Birthday Party. This involved makeovers, manicures and even a fashion show runway for everyone to show off their glamorous selves and ended up being the last themed birthday party for the triplets. In 2019, when the triplets turned 11, it was decided there would be no more big birthday parties for awhile.
It seems like just yesterday the triplets were babies and celebrating their first birthday. Now, they are young ladies, growing up more with every year that passes. Beverly
