Our Oldest Turns 6

I really can’t believe it…our oldest is 6! 6 just Sounds OLD!

I love to celebrate my kids on their birthday! It usually turns into a birthday week around here! ๐Ÿ™‚ ย Since she is SO old now, this year I asked her if she would rather have a “fun” day than having a big party. A day where she could pick to do anything (well, just about!) and we would just have a day all about her. She loved that idea! Actually, I was relieved! Lets face it, a kid’s birthday party for the mom turns into a TON of work. Considering she has had 5 huge parties and we also have 2 other kids, I’m not gonna lie…I’m a little partied out this year!

This is what we had planned for the day: A trip to Build A Bear, the Disney Store, Taco Bell (I know, she really let us off easy!) A shopping spree at Justice, and getting our nails painted for Christmas! Her brother and little sister were there for the first part. Then, they went home with Dad while the birthday girl, her friend/cousin, 2 aunts and I finished up the day with the girl stuff! ๐Ÿ™‚

We had such a fun day! I wasn’t so busy with party stuff that I could enjoy the whole day just celebrating my oldest daughter!

I’m pretty sure the girls had fun considering on the way home, I heard over and over “it was such a super fun day!” in between all the giggling! SUCCESS!

Her cake after her family birthday dinner. On her actual birthday I always let her pick dinner. This year she picked pizza at our favorite local pizza place! She was REALLY being easy on me this year! I was ready to make anything she asked! ๐Ÿ™‚ We had a nice dinner with her grandparents and aunts and uncles. Of course she was still spoiled with awesome gifts from them too!

She is just such a great little girl! So sweet, thoughtful and really full of faith – no pun intended!! ๐Ÿ˜‰ ย I was more than happy to celebrate this girl and do my best to make her feel special and loved!

We are so blessed to be her parents!
