THE PARTY HAS JUST BEGUN..

It was my oldest daughters 13th birthday yesterday, but her birthday celebrationS started the day before. My sister in-law took us out to dinner at an Italian restaurant called Giorgio's. Mmm...mmm!!

Before we eat, we always give thanks first. I wanted to capture this moment (since it was my daughters bday), and I cracked up when I saw my youngest daughter! Yes, that is her eating while my husband is praying! LOL!!

Next morning (Wednesday) was her actual birthday, and I decided to take the kids to Ihop for breakfast! Isaiah said he was still full from the night before so he didn't want to go..lol.

This was delicious!!

She wanted an ice cream cake for her birthday, so after breakfast we headed over to Baskin Robbins. Of course, they all wanted a scoop of ice cream while we were there!

My sister and her family were visiting from Hawaii, but we only got to see them on this day. So our plans with them were to go to the movies. We saw Shrek! The three extra boys are my nephews, and one of them has a baseball tournament in Las Vegas this week.

Later on that evening, we had plans to go to dinner with my dad and his wife.

And it was oh so yummy!

We ended the night with the cake, and of course, here is my daughter making crazy faces!

So, two days of birthday fun for her, and her last celebration will be her party coming up in a couple of weeks!
