birthday guest

Miss M was Carly's overnight guest. They were both really excited. I picked them up from school and we went to the house to change clothes. Carly opened her present from Miss M which was a super cute charm bracelet that matched hers. Miss M's mom made them matching scarves. How cute are they (the scarves and the girls)?

We went to the movie and saw Hotel for Dogs. It was cute, funny, sad, age appropriate with a happy ending. You can't ask for much more. Well, diet coke and popcorn but we had that too.

After the movie, they chose to go to the bookstore which I thought was great. They had a great time exploring, finding books, and reading.

After the bookstore, we went to La Siesta. Initially it was for dinner but we had already eaten popcorn and nobody was very hungry. We had chips, salsa and cheese dip.

Next, was back home for birthday cake and ice cream. I told Miss M's mom that I promised if I was responsible for her daughter again I would feed her a real meal with fruits and veggies.
Carly also had a stack of good mail to open. She got cards from Finn, To-To & Unc, Aunt Kacey, Mam-Mam & Grandaddy (which included the traditional $9 and don't think she had forgotten about that).
She also got a package from Uncle Beege, Aunt Libba and JC. It had a beautiful and sweet little silver star necklace. Carly thought it was very big girl looking.

We had a great girls' night.

I love the scarves - - -

I have never seen all the candles grouped up in a choir like that before - - - I LOVE that. How did you get THAT idea?

Happy Birthday, Miss Carly!!!

Happy Birthday!!!!!!! I have been on the lookout for a BIRTHDAY post! I hope it was a great day!

The $9 from mom and dad reminds me that time Carly asked if she would get $50 from them when she turned 50....

It sounds like a fabulous night! It makes me long for the day when I can tell K she can have one friend, and not 15, for her birthday party.

What an awesome way to celebrate her birthday! I would have loved such an outing when I was a kid.

Sounds like a perfect birthday outing. And the necklace is a very grownup gift indeed.
