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.
