On Sunday afternoon, Auntie Marc came up to spend the day with us. We unwrapped presents & had a little birthday dinner for Taya. It was really nice to be together as a family.
My friend Nancy who loves to spoil my kids sent Taya a ton of clothes, shoes, & some fun Tsum Tsum things including an Alice Tsum Tsum pillow.
For her birthday dinner Taya chose her 3 favorite foods:
Spaghetti & Meatballs, Cheesy Potatoes, & Grapes
None of those 3 things really go together, but oh well. She loved it.
After dinner we opened presents from the family/grandparents/etc.
Grandma K. gave her $10.
The boys got her a Mickey talking Tsum Tsum
Opa & Oma got her a Disgust Infinity character & a Frozen lego set.
Auntie Marc gave her a little handheld video game thing & some money in her college account. Her sister, Auntie Char also sent some money for Taya's college fund.
Auntie Cari & Uncle Justin sent a Jasmine lego set.
Cadence spent her babysitting money on a bead set for Taya since Taya loves to make necklaces.
And Lorien spent her own money on a Tinkerbell Infinity character for Taya.
Mamoo bought Taya the most beautiful barbie from Disney Descendants.
And Mimi & Baba got her some coloring books & markers.
Trek & I told her for her present from us, that next weekend we'd take her to go pick out a new bike. Taya has been riding the same bike for 4 years now (picture a training wheel size bike on a 9 year old. . . yeah, it was about time). She is SO excited to finally get a bike that fits her.
She was also excited to go to school on Monday wearing her new clothes & use her new backpack from Nancy. It was a great birthday.
Happy Birthday Taya.
