We’re going to Party Hearty

 

39

It’s Emma’s 11th birthday tomorrow and she’s had it planned out for weeks.

**there is no school tomorrow because the school district made Feb. 12 a “snow makeup day”.  Since we’ve had 4 days of snow this whole winter, we didn’t need to make up anything and the kids just get a 4 day weekend.  Lucky Emma.

Breakfast: Omelets and cinnamon breakfast muffins

Morning activity:  Haircuts (this is the 12th day of Valentines “gift” from me to everyone)

Lunch:  Shells and Cheese (from the box.  I even got the generic brand but she’ll never know.)

Afternoon activity:  Going to the movies to see the Lightening Thief.  We finished it last night and everyone is excited.  (Except me, since I will be paying $7.50 to stand out in the hall with Faith, the Busiest Baby On The Planet.)

Dinner:  the Cafe Rio knockoff salad.  It’s her very favorite, which is awesome because while the kids may looovve Shells and Cheese, I’m happy to be making and eating something designed for people over 12.

Evening activity:  The Daines are coming over for a game night.  And then cousins over the age of 3 are NotSleeping Over.  (Because those Daines do not sleep very much when they are part of a “slumber” party.)

Requested birthday cake:  the big chocolate one from Costco.  (I promise there were no bribes involved from the mother of the birthday girl).

And if there’s anyone who deserves all this:  It’s Emma.  Responsible and good and stylish and kind, we can’t wait to see what she does with all of her awesomeness.

That is so Emma to have it all planned out, especially the meals. I cannot wait to read more posts about her awesomeness- are you loving the stage she's in right now?

She is adorable, and it sounds like the perfect birthday...no school. What could be better. I think Faith could tie with Ethan for busiest baby.

I am currently waiting for the dough to double in size for Dallin's requested breakfast "for his 6 year old birthday" of cinnamon rolls tomorrow morning. I must really love him a lot since I usually only make them for Christmas, being that they require overnight rising, home made frosting, the works. We are going bowling tomorrow night! Happy Birthday to your oldest too!

I don't think I could love her more if she were my own. She makes me feel so loved, everytime I see her she gives me a giant bear hug. It doesn't matter if we are at church, school, park etc...I heart that girl!

Happy Birthday Emma! xoxo

Mmmm, fake cafe rio salad. That sounds so good. Might have to get the stuff and make it this weekend.

Oh, yeah, and happy birthday to your gorgeous girl. She is so cute.

Happy Birthday, Emma!!

I know that I have said this before but, I have to say again...she is so beautiful!!

I am happy that she requested the Cafe Rio salad. We have made that, too...from your recipe, my dear.

We are off of school today, too. It is a furlough day. I will be thinking of you.

Happy birthday, Emma!! I love that you are having a NotSleep-over. Too funny!

Happy birthday to Emma. What a full day she has planned!

Could the thought of the chocolate Costco cake be the reason you gave up a chance for a "sleep-in" morning to hit Boot Camp?

Just want to say that I think you are one terrific mom.
