Double Digit Birthday

Guess who turned 10 yesterday?  I'll give you a clue.  It's not the cute kid standing behind the sign.  Yep!  It's the sweet, adorable, oh-so-awesome kid holding the sign!  And guess what else...our little girl is now officially in the double digits!
Yep!  I remember counting her little fingers and toes at the hospital...(10 of each) trying to imagine what she would look like in 10 years.  I just can't believe that those 10 years have already come and gone!

But some things are still the same:
She's still SO kissable!
Honestly, who wouldn't want to kiss those cheeks? 
And of course she still enjoys reading.
But there is no denying that a lot of things have changed.  Next year she will start middle school and in 2 years she will be in Young Women. 

Wow!  I hope the next 10 years goes by a little slower...

Birthday Recap:
Unfortunately, spring break just ended here so after a nutritious handful of Cap'n Crunch  (hey it was the peanut butter kind) the birthday girl and sister are off to catch the bus! 

Fast forward to 11 am and here we are having lunch with Cardi at school.  We even made it in time to have the Loft House cookies we sent to school with her.

Unfortunately, birthdays do not get you out of homework.  In fact, I think they sent home extra.  So, while Cardi and her friend, Jackie, were doing homework Bella and I headed to the store to pick up some milk and ice cream.

We had an impromptu picnic in the front yard...of Cardi's traditional birthday dinner of pasta pesto, rolls, and vegetables.

But we did have dessert inside...

Which we all enjoyed!

Followed by more pictures!

and then roller skating outside...

Wednesday is board game day after school.  There just wasn't enough time to fit everything in and Friday is the big slumber party...which means there will be more photos to come...
