We hurried to get to Pizza Ranch to meet Grandma Pat at noon. Dancer was born at 1:32 a.m. and she wanted to stay up until then to be awake for her "actual" birth minute I guess you would call it. When the time came around we were right in the middle of watching "Chopped" on the food network and so we stayed up until 2:00 then to see who the winner was. Needless to say, we had a hard time getting up in the morning.
Yummy buffet at Pizza Ranch as always and Grandma brought gifts. She gave Dancer a ceramic birthday girl, she gives her one every year, and the game "Are You Smarter Than A 5th Grader?"
The rest of the afternoon we went to the mall, Barnes and Noble, and Walmart to find a movie Dancer would want to watch for her birthday night. It took us longer to find a movie she wanted than it will to watch it. Actually she got the three "Pirates of the Caribbean" movies which are each over two hours long.
Opening the presents! The best part of the birthday celebration.
Spark got her a Webkinz fox, which she named Silky Nicole, and we got her.....a box full of presents! They would have all be obvious what they were if I had had them all out individually so I wrapped them all then wrapped them in a bigger box.
A quick run down of the gifts, Burt's Bees pomegranate lip balm (she loves this kind), purple glitter nail polish, purple sunglasses, facial mask, embroidery hoop, punch needle kit of a cow jumping over the moon, and a DS game. She opened and started playing the DS game and we wondered if she was even going to want to watch a movie after we had spent all afternoon looking for one. She did tear herself away from the game and we watch "The Curse of the Black Pearl."
She choose a cheese cake for her birthday cake. I realized that we were all out of birthday candles so we lit a votive candle for her to blow out.
Oh, what a good choice she made. The cake was rich and thick and oh so good.
Dancer and Mom. Happy Birthday sweet girl - you are the best!!!!
