Blue’s Clues Birthday Party

We were trying to figure out – What does Blue want for lunch?

We started with some cheese and crackers.  When cleaning up we noticed that the cheese was a clue!  We had to write that down in our handy dandy notebook!IMG_3568IMG_3570IMG_3569

We moved onto our second activity -  matching objects to their colors.  Oh, wow – the tomato sauce is our second clue!  Gotta write it down.


Mail time!  Mail’s here!  We did the dance.  Joy got a letter from her friends.IMG_3581IMG_3582IMG_3585

We moved onto working on our shapes.  We colored and put stickers on a square, a circle, and a rectangle.  While reviewing, we noticed that the circle was our third clue!  We had all three clues!  Marlissa was so cute!  She looked for clues.  She got so excited when she found a clue.


We went to our thinking chair!  Hmmm…what could Blue want for lunch with cheese, tomato sauce, and a circle.  PIZZA!!  We had to wait a few minutes for the pizza to arrive, so we opened presents.  Yea for pizza!

Happy 4th Birthday Joy!!!

How has four years passed?

From this:                                                to this:


Today, especially, I think about your birthmother.  I hope that she and your twin brother are happy and well.  I hope that your brother had a wonderful birthday too!

For my Joy – all her favorites for her birthday:

Donuts for breakfast, a crown and bracelets from Bella’s nurse (after all, you are a diva, my love!)


Out to the mall for lunch and to buy a “birf-day bear” with Grandma and Grandpa Turpin’s birthday money.  (THANK YOU!!)
