Bring on the Birthday Party

Last Saturday, Tay invited several friends and our family over for a little birthday celebration. After altering our original plans to not include carnival rides, she chose to invite her three BFF's over for a pizza lunch and then we headed to the movies to see Cloudy with a Chance of Meatballs in 3D. 

It was a much smaller, low-key celebration than we generally have but I honestly think she's gotten to the age where she has certain really good friends with whom she wants to share these type of events. At least that's what I'm observing...the bottom line is that she had an absolute blast and that's all that matters :-)...

I offered to make her this fabulous 7-layer rainbow cake for her birthday. She declined but did request blue and green cupcakes. So the ones you see with green icing had blue cake and the ones with blue icing had green cake. Snazzy, huh?

Cayla was visiting her dad last weekend so she couldn't attend...

Since she'd gotten her iPod Touch earlier in the week, she didn't get a gift at her party from us. She was so excited about the Webkinz and Littlest Pet Shop additions to her collection, though. This kid LOVES animals!

At the movies sportin' 3D glasses. This was taken just before they all dug into giant movie pickles. Oh, to be 10 years old again...
