For Cadence's special birthday dinner she asked me to make pepperjack chicken enchiladas. I discovered the recipe on Pintrest last month & after I made it once, I knew it would be a family favorite. She LOVES them. I thought they'd be a little spicy for my kids, but even my boys gobble them up. She also wanted some chips, & a fruit cup on the side. (She loves her fruit cups.)
She was very excited to eat her favorite food & be the center of attention for the evening.
After dinner, we went into the living room & opened presents from family. She got all sorts of fun things.
|She got Big Ben legos from Opa & Oma. How cool is that?|
|Mimi & Baba got her the new Ariel boat ride|
|Mamoo got her a really neat nail art kit.|
|Lorien saved up her allowance & bought her|
the mermaid Ariel Lego set.
|Taya gave Cadence all the money she had: $1 from the tooth|
fairy (from last week) & a quarter from her treasure box.
|My friend Nancy got her all sorts of fun things:|
clothes, shoes, a book, nail polish, rocks, a puzzle,
hand soap & lotion, & a beautiful sweater.
|Auntie Cari & Uncle Justin got her a TON of|
rubber bands & a loom to make more bracelets.
|The boys got her more rubber bands as well.|
|Auntie Char & Uncle Jay got her the cutest little|
notecards for writing letters.
|And I got her the new Rapunzel Lego set.|
She also got a card from the Arbuckles & some money from Grandma Kinsfather. . . & for some reason I didn't get a picture of the set of books Trek got her, probably because we were video chatting with him at the time. But he got her 4 books from the Goddess Girls series.
She got some really great things & is thankful for all of them. It was a great birthday for her this year even if Daddy was far away. He was video chatting with us the entire time she opened gifts. We were happy he could be a part of it even though he was so far away.
Happy Birthday Cadence darling.
