Not flesh of my flesh
nor bone of my bone
but still miraculously my own.

Never forget for a single minute
you didn't grow under my heart
but in it!

Gabriella's School Birthday Party

Today was Gabriella's Elmo themed school birthday party with Gabriella's class. A fun time was had by all.
I had ordered a bakery cake in addition to the one I made because I wasn't sure how mine would come out. It turns out that mine was much cuter than the bakery's! I loved that every kid and teacher in the entire school was able to have a slice of birthday cake because we had so much!

Taking a taste!:
While we were singing happy birthday to Gabriella, she acted a bit surprised, like she didn't realize why we were singing to her! It was very cute!:

Digging into the cake!:
Everybody enjoying cake and ice cream:
Ava specially wrapped and decorated a birthday present for Gabriella. It was a Hannah Montana flashlight for our camping trip next week (we are going with Ava's family):
Our two special birthday party helpers, Aunt Kathy and Ken:
After the party Aunt Kathy, Tita Candace, and I took Gabriella and Ava to McDonald's Play Place to release some of the sugar energy!

Tomorrow is Gabriella's big day, her actual birthday. We are very excited to celebrate the day with her!
