Lexi Had a Birthday

Her birthday fell on a school day this year. 

Lexi loves fresh fruit and aerosol whip cream so that's what we brought. I think over half of the kids threw it away. (Sad face.)

She'd been telling us for months that she wanted a Chuck E. Cheese party. We decided to indulge her (to a bit, she only got to invite two friends) by going to see the big mouse on her big day. 

Booked parties include a trip in the "ticket tornado" for the birthday child. I'm not sure who loved it more; Lexi or those of us watching. 
Diane and Van (or Di-Van, as Addie calls them) came to help celebrate.

We wrapped up a weekend of celebration by having a family party here at the house. 

Lexi asked (at Christmas time) for a cupcake-cake for her birthday. Allen got her the mold and I made the cake. It was a huge hit with all of the kiddos.
Now that she can read, she understands humor a bit more, too. She thought this card was hilarious.
Opening presents with her cousins.
 Lexi says she had an awesome birthday this year and we have to agree!

What started as a way to communicate with far away friends and family has become a place for this horse trainer/HR manager turned stay at home mom of 3 girls to hold on to a bit of her own identity. It's my take on the ins and outs, the ups and downs, the thoughts and feelings, the mistakes and triumphs of this family as we bumble our way to eternity.
