The Other Special Lady In My Life
Meet D. This is my adorable stepdaughter. In a few hours she will be 7. How cool would it be to have a birthday on New Years Eve? She will have tons of fun with that later.
She had never had a sleepover at our house before so I decided she was overdue for one.
I had already bought the type of cake she wanted but what I found out this morning is that she wanted a "special" cake. One that I am not capable of making. So what do I do to get this lovely cake in my possession?
I call and whine to my friend who made these for Lael and her son's 5th birthday party a few months ago. Isn't she talented and extra sweet for making this at literally THE LAST MINUTE. Thanks Dusty she loved it, and that's putting it lightly.
I finally found Dance Revolution for XBOX 360 today and had to get it so the girls could dance their little hearts out. And they did. For about 3 hours. Yeah, big hit.
Afterwards, they watched Hannah Montana and ate TONS of popcorn and giggled, and giggled some more.
They then put on a PJ fashion show. That in itself made my night. D was very happy and thanked me many times. They are still awake now and I am plotting the different ways I can knock them out. Sleeping Pills, NyQuil, Hypnotizing, just kidding. But I do have to get up and work tomorrow, and while I'll only be working half a day, I can already tell I will be tired from lack of sleep.
I feel no remorse for my husband who will have to feed them breakfast and deal with them after a night of sleep.
Happy Birthday D. I love you hunnie!
Oh and I couldn't post without leaving yall a snap of my baby. This is her "serious" pose during the fashion show. Yeah, I know. A-D-O-R-A-B-L-E.
