Almost two months ago now, Lia turned eleven. Usually we take the day off and go shopping. Dave and I decided this wasn't the most budget-friendly way to celebrate birthdays (for all seven kids) so instead we took half a day off and went shopping ;) kidding! (kind of)
Lia knew we were going to pick out something for her birthday gift, but she didn't know I had a surprise manicure and pedicure set up for her. I had some gift cards to use up, so after lunch at school I picked her up and off we went. I think she enjoyed her day of pampering!
after the pampering was Target for her small shopping spree ;) Mega wasn't impressed.
then there was the traditional cake and ice cream and gifts to end the night.
these last two photos pretty much sum up Lia Rae perfectly :) I'm sure she'll appreciate these some day...
As if Lia turning eleven wasn't bad enough, Drew went ahead and turned three earlier this week. These kids… they weren't supposed to get so old so fast!
Dave was in charge of the cake, and he and Tayt found the perfect one for her. She was so excited!
and then there were gifts! to say this girl likes Minnie Mouse would be an understatement. She's in love!
a big thank you to grandmas, grandpas, aunts, uncles, cousins, and good friends for the gifts… the girls couldn't be happier!
