The tooth fairy brought $5 and some fun bath fizzies. The next morning on her actual birthday, pancakes were a must. And a "K" was the perfect shape for the birthday girl.
She got to open ONE present in the morning before we went to work. Can you tell how much she loves nail polish?
After work, the birthday girl picked her favorite restaurant for dinner. Her first choice was Sonic.... well, mommy politely asked if we could go somewhere where we could sit down to eat. So Chick-fil-A it was. And you can't have a birthday dinner without a sweet treat! So the birthday girl chose a scoop of mint chocolate chip on a cone.... and we sang Happy Birthday to her right in the middle of the ice cream store.
On Saturday morning before her party, Aunt Susie took Kennedy for a special shopping trip. Kennedy was allowed to pick one thing in this super-hip tween store. If it weren't for Aunt Susie, Kennedy would never be able to appreciate the value in sequins. She is decked out now. Shoes. Purses. Awesome.
With the birthday outfit officially complete (new shoes and handbag perfectly coordinated by the little fashionista herself)....
....it was time to head to the birthday party at Glo Puttz! Glow in the dark putt putt, snazzy hot pink and green cupcakes, party favors, and arcade games. It was air conditioned, dark, and surprisingly quiet. Perfect.
Aunt Susie and Uncle Ford joined in the festivities, too!
The party moved to Nina and Papa's house where Kennedy opened presents from the family. Do you see this adorable little Caboodle? I had one of these when I was younger and STUFFED it with fun make up, nail polish, brushes, hair accessories, and on and on and on. Good thing Kennedy got this small one from her Aunt Tracy.
Oh ... and she has already put make up on twice! I'm thinking this was the perfect gift.
