Happy 9th Birthday to the sweetest little princess that I know! ;) This year our little dolly wanted to spend her actual birthday at home with her family -- lots of fun activities were offered: a children's play in town, a fairy house tour in town (we loved that last year!), candlepin bowling, a movie... She picked breakfast in bed (a tradition for a few years now), opening gifts and playing with the one gift that she had been longing for -- Disney Infinity! Then she wanted Mommy's roast chicken with mashed potatoes and gravy for dinner, and finally, red velvet cake for dessert! Mommy was going to be spending the entire day in the kitchen -- which I would have happily done for my girl -- but Daddy, who had unexpectedly surprised us with having the day off, went to the store and bought a red velvet cake! That save a bunch of time! It was a very relaxed day but lovely to have the 4 of us all together all day celebrating our new 9 year old!
