For dinner we went to Chick-Fil-A. The girls love that place and they had a lot of fun. After dinner, we came home for some games, presents, and cake and ice cream.
Ali requested a yellow cake with purple frosting. Funny huh? I asked her and that was her response. So that's what we did. A yellow cake mix and purple (in person it does look more purple!) frosting. We found a Dora figurine and some animals to make it more fun!
I'm gonna be honest here. I was NEVER a fan of character clothes, shoes, etc. in the past. I'm still not a HUGE fan, but I figure they go through stages and hey, if she loves Dora, we will accept it and let her be happy. Then we can get rid of the stuff when the stage is over :)
She also got a Melissa and Doug ice cream set and a Dora play set that's in lego form.
Blowing out her candle!! It took her a few tries :)
This past year has been a fun one for you. You've learned how to play really well with your sister. You look up to her and love her. You also love your little brother Jackson. You talk really loudly and animated to him! You call him Jackson boo boo! He loves to look at you and you make him smile and laugh.
You have become quite particular about how things are to be done. If you want to do something, we find out very quickly! You have thrown quite the temper tantrums, but lately you have gotten much better. You have lots of sass and spunk! You can be the biggest sweetheart too. You love to give "Sunny squeezes, Sarah squeezes, popstar squeezes," and the list goes on! You give the best hugs and we love them.
You are an early bird. You are always first to come into our room in the morning. You recently love to put on Molly's leotards and any swimsuits you can find and then wear them all day. You love dress ups and often change them several times a day. You still love your kitty and cougar and you sleep and take naps with them always. You love to color and scribble all over your coloring pages. You love playing ponies, lalaloopsy, barbies, kitchen, and with any other toys you find. You love to sing and to dance. You love watching movies and Dora the Explorer. You are a daddy's girl, and always want to talk to your daddy on the phone and are so excited when he comes home.
We love you!
Mom and Dad
