Photobucket Photos of Arielle's Birthday!

She chose the lunch spot. We usually do dinner but Cy has to work tonight.
There's always lots of help opening gifts around here....
Bre's package arrived from WA right as we began opening gifts. She made an Arielle necklace, she and Krista made a card, there was a homemade Krista had given them gifts when she was home in December. Mom, your card got here too! She's planning how to spend her $.
Stacia got her a pink beach towel and this ball - which she promptly claimed!
3 new Nancy Drew computer games to solve
I figure none of the boys will take her water bottle. LOL
Mike and I also gave her the softball glove...we had hoped to find a Hope Chest for her but it appears that we'll have to do some searching for this. Hmph. When Bre and Krista got them - nearly 12 and 10 years ago they were on sale at WALMART. Ah well - I should have planned ahead. All I could find was Rubbermaid - not quite what we had in mind - and garden chests.

With 5 brothers at home...surprises are always expected. Cy was ON THE ROOF!
She holds her own
Stacia wasn't so sure
I made this version of Mike's Famous Ice Cream Cake, so I got to be in the picture. LOL
WE FORGOT and let Zander eat some...oops - I even HAD homemade stuff for him.

Tonight, we'll watch movies, go on a walk, play......

Happy birthday, Arielle! Wow, 11, that is a big year. What a fun birthday you had.

Bessie still enjoys her Nancy Drew Games. She says there is a new one coming out soon.

Happy Birthday, Arielle! What a wonderful celebration!

Bess said...

Happy Birthday Arielle! Let's see...I recognize the Last Train/Secret of the Old Clock box but what is the other one? Is it the White Wolf? or is it (one of my personal favorites) Legend of the Crystal Skull? Currently I am working my way (again:) through The Curse of Blackmoor Manor again. Have fun!
