Waking Up in Style

I know I haven't blogged much and the posts I've managed to get out all seem to be about celebrating my Tori. I guess that is because she has been one celebrated little girl as of late.

With her birthday (Dec 17) falling in the South African summer the celebrating started November in fact.

She was celebrated at school last month with a special honoring ceremony...

Then in beginning of Dec. she partied "Under the Sea" with some of her classmates..

So when it came to her actual birthday it was a family event with our little Franzenfam traditions. On a Franzenfam birthday the birthday member begins their day with breakfast in bed. Tori enjoyed this tradition but it was extra special than in years past. This year she was served breakfast in her brand new room..

We changed our home office into a little girl's room, pink and all....

Grandma sent all the bedding from pretty...

Thank you PBC for bringing it all over for us!

We had an old ugly wardrobe in our garage I used for storage. We stripped it, painted it and changed the hardware. Being the room was originally designed to be an office it has no closet so the wardrobe worked out perfectly and the cost saving was a bonus!

It has been a wonderful month of celebrating a wonderful girl, one that we love dearly and is a special part of the that is now waking up in style!
