This year, her actual birthday fell on a Saturday...this means that we could celebrate and party on ONE DAY! Sometimes birthdays spread over 3 to 4 days because it falls on a school day and friends can't join us until the weekend, this year was great!
The birthday girl woke to a decorated house, candle-topped honey bun, & gifts to open! She got a sequence pillow and the sloth she wanted since Christmas. Then we surprised her by taking her upstairs to see a tv in her room! She has always wanted a tv in her room...she is hoping it would help her to sleep in there better. She must be one special girl!
After school, she got to have some friends over for a birthday celebration sleep over! We planned it out to be a dj dance party. We all worked really hard to make the front room party perfect! She invited Evie, Maddie, Addy, & Ashlynn...it was a fun evening filled with music, dancing, movies, pillow case painting, games and eventually ending the next morning with pancakes "thrown" by Daddy! Happy birthday to my big 9 year old party gal!
She actually did get to squeeze a bit of extra birthday celebration out of things because Aunt Regina & uncle Wayne sent her a super duper pop out card and $20! Aunt Sissy gave her money and panera bucks..lucky gal!
