On Tuesday...my oldest turned 11. We had a little family party for her on Sunday.
My kids always get to plan the menu for their birthday...and whenever I ask my kids what they want for their cake/dessert...they NEVER pick cake! (Much to my mother's dismay!) So...Daisy wanted Chocolate Chip Cookies and that's what she got. She wanted a blue and yellow theme (in honor of her soccer team).
We also made homemade ice cream (oh my goodness!) with my new little ice cream maker...I got it for $47 on Amazon...best purchase ever. Yum.
And, her favorite meal is Taco Salad...so we did a Make-Your-Own-Taco-Salad-Bar.
Oh...she gets a little shy when all eyes are on her:). But, I think she secretly likes it.
After gift opening (she asked for Legos and $...and that is what she got) she turned around to total up her stash...all I could see were those dirty little feet on my white chair. My kids run the neighborhood in their bare feet...I don't know...I guess there are worse things.
Have a wonderful Good Friday and Easter (we'll be going to my parents house)!!! I think I'll share my Auntie Lynnie's Eggroll recipe on Monday...whoa, they're good!
