So it’s been close to a month and I am just now getting around to posting about Jamie’s big birthday. While she is the middle child, that isn’t the reason it’s taken so long to post. I am having a hard time admitting my girls are getting older and more mature. Jamie is our emotional little girl who keeps getting older. It’s hard to just go with it like she is so good at doing. She’s always gone with the flow of things and has always been easy-going. So here’s our celebration of her eleventh birthday!
Her actual birthday was on a Thursday this year. So that meant her birthday celebration ended up being the whole weekend! She treated her class to chocolate fudge popsicles, ordered up spaghetti and meatballs (no sauce, thank you) for supper, and her peanut butter cake with peanut butter buttercream for her star cake complete with 11 candles.
After eating (fast), skyping with Pop Pop to sing and enjoy a (fast) few bites of cake and to open presents, we had to head to drum lessons. Thursdays are pretty busy around here. This is her official birth minute photo after lessons…
Friday she opened a few more presents that arrived a little late. Seriously, it couldn’t have been better since she was already planning on the whole weekend of celebrating! Dad took her to Boondocks for her birthday date and to Olive Garden for lunch.
We had her actual party at Sky Trampoline where we jumped for 2 hours and then came home to pizza and her star-shaped cake. She wanted to share a “big star” with her friends. She also ordered up some chocolate chips to go with the peanut butter cake/buttercream.
We also go a few shots of her being 11 years old. She chose the pretty dress she received from the Laughrey’s for her photos. I think it goes great with her teal glasses!
And just one to keep it real around here. Turning 11 didn’t change a thing…
We love you, sweet girl. We hope it was a fun birthday!
