B-day Details

I think it is safe to say that B had a great birthday! We started the day with her rec field hockey game. Even though the girls were not able to have rec practice due to the weather they still did a nice job. The girls tied 3 to 3. Plus B had two assists and a goal! The only problem with the game is that as a coach I could not take a single picture. I am going to have to teach Hubby how to take game day photos.

After the game we made our way to P.F. Chang's.  B was overjoyed to order an entree sized gluten-free Lemon Chicken. For a skinny gal she can really eat a lot after a game but since she ran all game long I am sure that she needed it.

Later on Saturday night, B unwrapped her gifts. B was kind enough to allow L to help her unwrap gifts. L might have gotten carried away and unwrapped gifts before B was ready! But B just rolled with it and was happy with her birthday goodies.

One of B's birthday wishes was to invite her neighborhood friends over for cupcakes. But in true B style she started up a game of touch football. I had to call the kids over three times before they even thought about the cupcakes. I don't think that I would have to been called more than once for a cupcake!

Once the kids all made it up onto the deck, everyone sang to B. For whatever reason the addition of "cha-cha-cha oh al al" still makes me laugh. And the fact that my little girl had the day that she envisioned made my heart fill with joy! 


  1. Birthdays and parties are sooo important when our kids are young. I remember those days. Of course, my daughter still loves a party at 24!

  2. Sounds like B had a wonderful day!!! And I agree with you, no one has to call me twice for a cupcake;)

  3. You are the best, and I remember how much you liked PF Chang's from before. Happy B-day to the pretty girl.

  4. So glad it was a perfect birthday! I'm with you...nothing fills my heart with joy more than seeing my children happy.
