Today was an especially good day for us, because it was Little Miss' SEVENTH birthday!!!
My baby girl is 7. I can't believe it! She decided instead of having a party with a bunch of friends over, she wanted to choose one friend and go to the mall. So Little Miss, her friend K, my mom and me went to the Scottsdale Fashion Square mall on Friday evening. She wanted to have dinner at Panda Express in the mall, go play in their awesome play area, then go shopping and get something matching for her and her friend. (she got this idea from her friend O, who did this with Little Miss for her bday party, before she up and moved to Texas...) Anyway, they ended up getting matching lip gloss and tote bags from Bath and Body Works. We then got cupcakes at Sprinkles, which is right across from the mall. They had a super duper fun time. Oh-and we can't forget the gumball! Little Miss HAD to take a quarter and get a gumball from the machine. :)
Today was her actual bday, so we started the day with pumpkin chocolate chip pancakes. YUM YUM YUM!!!
Then for her birthday dinner (which we actually had at lunch instead) she chose hamburgers and ramen salad with brownies and ice cream for dessert. She got some cute presents, too. Teeny Bopper and Sweet G got her a CTR necklace/earrings set, Blondie gave her some chapter books, the boys gave her some chocolate scented body stuff, she got some bday outfits from Nana, and gorgeous dress from Naunee, and an Our Generation doll from mom and dad. (she really, really wanted it. and now we have enough of those dolls and will get no more. :)
To make the weekend even MORE awesome, it was General Conference. We love watching it together. ALL of us... :)
