Last night Kristen had her 1st slumber party...to celebrate her 7th birthday. Some of her friends were able to come celebrate with her for a little while, and two of the girls spent the night. We had pizza and birthday cake, and they played and giggled and had a great time. Kristen is so happy that her friends came to celebrate with her.
Kristen tells me quite often how she'd like a dad, and a brother or sister. I joked a while back that maybe one of her friends would have a single dad that we'd meet one of these days :) So a couple of weeks ago she told me something as she knew Father's Day was coming up.
"Mom, I really would like a dad for Father's Day. I've been looking for a grown-up boy for you, but nobody's interested. And some of them are brown, and they don't like white girls".
Happy 7th Birthday, Kristen!! What a great day we had. Kristen went to daycare until about 2:00 when I picked her up. She took cupcakes to share with her class after lunch. From there we headed straight to the mall and I surprised her by taking her to Build-A-Bear. She picked out a Panda and dressed her very cute. She named her Eliza. We hit Happy Hour at Sonic, then came home and she opened presents. Then we headed to McDonalds for a playdate with several of our Guatemala friends. We'll do some more celebrating over the next several days, then hopefully have a small party with a couple of her friends in about a week. Here are just a few of the pictures I took today. She was really excited about some of the presents she got. She's only 7 but already has Bieber Fever (2nd picture below).
