I can't let February pass me by without blogging about Eden's birthday. I can't believe she is 11! She has gone from this.....
She is kind, beautiful, friendly, spiritual, helpful, thoughtful, sweet, sensitive, and sometimes a little moody. We are so glad she is in our family.
For her birthday she really wanted a shellac light and some Sorel boots. Lucky for her she got both! and a few other small items.
We told her that because the items were a little more money than what we usually spend on birthdays she would not be able to have a birthday party with her friends this year.
But...............We felt bad and arranged to have some friends over a few days later for a SIMPLE surprise get together.
(I just went to find the pictures I took of the party, and can you believe I didn't take one Picture??)
Eden had been out with her grandma shopping for a present and when she came home, thinking that she had to babysit, her friends were waiting to surprise her. Although, she didn't act as surprised as I thought she would. I expected screaming and yelling from excitement and all we got were a few smiles and a look of confusion. "so what? I don't have to babysit?" was all said.
They had pizza and cake and played a few rounds of bingo with some super lame prizes, but they loved it. After the raging bingo game they watched Nacho Libre. In the end I think it turned out to be a great birthday for my sweet Neenie!
Lunch: Kneaders with Mom, Dad and Ainsley
after school she rushed off to gymnastics stayed there for 2 hours instead of 3.
came home to her dinner of choice: Chicken Alfredo (which was cold because we had to eat before she got home from gymnastics because Cache had YM and Asher also had gymnastics)
dessert: cupcakes and a birthday song sung to her by me and Ainsley since we were the only ones home. (good thing we had that party because her birthday evening was a little sad)
