We celebrated Kaylee’s birthday last week. She turned the big TEN. It’s crazy for me to think that I have a daughter in the double digits! That’s serious stuff. It means that whether I realize it or not, I am in the thick of raising my family. It means that I need to have a game plan and be prepared for these teenage years that are going to come much to quickly. It also means that I need to enjoy her every day and treat her like the sweet princess she is. That really isn’t very hard to do because she makes life pretty sweet (most of the time).
Happy Birthday Kaylee!
We have a tradition of breakfast in bed on your birthday. The kids love this, so do I. The night before her birthday, Casey blew up some balloons and I snuck into her room and scattered them all over while she was sleeping. I thought it would be a fun surprise. This should tell her how much I really love her because I HATE balloons. It drives me batty how the kids act around them, but it was worth it. A couple days later we had a balloon popping party.
Her breakfast request was chocolate chip muffins with a crumb topping, milk and I added the fruit, (cause that’s what good moms do, right?)
And little sisters are supposed to be obnoxious and get into your business.
I think we have the big sister, lil sister roles covered perfectly!
Then it was off to Cold Stone for lunch.
Yes. You read that right. We had Cold Stone for lunch. And that was it. Partially because I was trying to indulge everyone on a special day but also because I really didn’t want to make lunch when we got home.
The menu that night was her choice. She choose Cream Cheese Chicken in the crockpot with rice. The green beans were added by dad (‘cause that’s what good dad’s do, right?)
Then it was time for presents.
This year she got new shoes, a swim suit and cover up, a new shirt, head band, crazy socks, The game of Life, Just Dance 2 for the wii and birthday $.
We ended her day with cake and birthday wishes.
I think she had a pretty good day. :) Now we are in the middle of planning her birthday party that is this weekend. I really should be far past the planning stage and well into the doing stage, but I’m not. It’s going to be fun though. She’s super excited! I’ll keep you posted.
