My middle baby is 10. TEN! I cannot believe it. How on earth did she get to 10 so darn fast?
We woke her up with some Stevie Wonder “Happy Birthday to you” music; it’s a tradition around here. Here’s what she looks like when we storm into her room while she’s sleeping……
She finally got out of bed.
There were gifts and cinnamon rolls on the table……
She got money, gift cards, a Build-A-Bear dog (that she will go stuff tomorrow), and books. She got Mary’s gift later on that day.
I promise there were more than 5 cinnamon rolls, too! I made 2 pans and the bigger one was still up on the counter.
She got dressed and I finished making frosting for her cake and we put our lunch together for the day. I am no cake decorator. At all. Not.
Can I tell you how much I love these containers?!?!? They are da bomb! I made a Quorn roast and sliced it up for sandwiches. I made the focaccia bread, too. I also made pasta salad and broccoli slaw. Yummmmmmmm. Alex got some blue corn chips, too.
It had been storming all morning. I thought it would clear up, but it rained on and off the entire day. Not good! We had originally planned on having a picnic in the field by La Nouba, but the rain forced us over to the Polynesian. Gee, such a pain. Lol. We enjoyed our lunch and then Hannah wanted to shop.
She bought some perfume at the Polynesian and a keychain over in Downtown Disney.
Mary joined us around 2:30. We met her over at Downtown Disney and then went over to Baby Cakes (in the spot where McD’s used to be – now it’s Fresh A Peal and Pollo Camparo). We ended up getting some chocolate chip cookies from there.
Check out the many faces of my girls:
I think Hannah wanted Kali’s cookie!
Um, Hannah, no drinking until you’re 21!
See how much they love each other?
Uh oh, maybe I was wrong!
Yep, there is no love here!
Then they started playing with my phone.
My starving college student was, well, starving! She talked us into going to eat early. Off to House of Blues we went!
Didn’t I tell Hannah no drinking?!?! I don’t think she listened to me.
She almost ended up on my dinner menu.
After dinner Mary had to take off and get home. She had to get up at the butt-crack of dawn for work today. She’s coming over tomorrow for cake and hopefully a good football game! Oh yeah, I nearly forgot! She gave Hannah tickets to Universal. She is soooo excited! We’ll go in 2 weeks when daddy has a Friday off of work again.
We all went home after some more shopping and had cake. Really yummy cake.
She wanted strawberries on her cake. I only put a few on there so it didn’t get the icing all soggy. I have more in the fridge waiting for her!
And she also wanted strawberry ice cream. OMG. This stuff is awesome!
And so is this girl.
Happy 10th Birthday to my most awesome, beautiful, funny, smart, and creative daughter. You are my favorite 10 year old in the whole universe.
