Last night we made yellow cupcakes with chocolate frosting, per her request. She added some sprinkles and a little cupcake pick that came with the cupcake holders. We had to keep one unfrosted for her friend who didn't like chocolate. I forgot and she reminded me so we wrapped one up for him and kept that separate. She really likes to take care of her friends and friends are important to her.
This morning she snuggled in bed with us, and daddy told her she looked like an old woman to which she took offense because she is not 100 years old, and to be an old lady you must be 100!
She wanted to wear a dress to school, she loves dresses for some reason, so she picked out a pretty white sundress. She had a waffle for breakfast and it only got better when she got to school. Her friends came running over screaming, "HAPPY BIRTHDAY, AMY!!!" They lavished her with hugs and kisses and the happiness on her face was a picture moment, but I didn't have my camera! Ack! They walked her to class with other friends running up and wishing her a happy birthday, and while all the kids were putting their backpacks and jackets on their hooks they broke out in to song singing Happy Birthday to her. She was so happy and it was only 8am!!!
Later we're going to buy her a bike, a request from months ago, a Mario DSI game, because she and her three sisters are always battling the use of the ONE that we have, and then to Sonic because they have Slushes. I drove the little girls through one day after school last week when we hit their drink Happy Hour and they enjoyed grape and orange slushes along with a small french fry. I figured they needed a little treat after being in school all day and then mom loading them in the minivan to take a drive to the doctor to drop off a medical form for Meskerem's post-adoption report.
