Birthday in the House!

Well, to be technical, there was a birthday in the house last Thursday. It's just taken me this long to have a few minutes to upload the festive photos for your enjoyment. And so....

Happy 12th Birthday, Hayley!!!!

To celebrate, we took her to Beaches, a favorite restaurant of the locals. They put her name up on their "Specials" board and even printed her name on the daily special menu.

Here she is with her birthday creme brulee (wipe the drool, Dad!) as the Beaches staff, along with most of the restaurant patrons, sang to her.

And here she is with me -- the bestest mom in the whole wide world. (As long as I'm not forcing her to do chores or something equally as cruel.

She opened her gifts, all of which she adored, which included a tall bookcase from Scott and I. That girl was stuffing books in every little nook and cranny of her room, so she desperately a place to put them all! (The two smaller bookcases she already had were so not adequate!)

And, oh the joy poured forth when she opened a new dvd... Another Cinderella Story. It's one of her favorites. (I'll tell you a secret, but you must promise never to hold it against me, ok? I adore this movie! I could watch it over and over. *sigh* Great acting? No. Girl power? Not as much as I would like. But it is so dang cute! Watch it and you will understand. Heehee.)

So it was a fantastic birthday all around. I'm so proud of her. She's such a great kid!
