Ashlyn turns 9
Today my oldest turned 9. We can't believe it has been a year already. WOW, time flies. She woke up bright and early and got ready for school. We had her open her presents from us. She got clothes so she changed her outfit for school. I made her chocolate chip pancakes which were served on a celebrate plate. Last night I made star cupcakes for her whole class and took them to her school for a special lunch treat. They all loved them. I was even there as the yard duties announced her birthday over the bull-horn and everyone yelled at the top of their lungs "HAPPY BIRTHDAY"!Our friends daughter Belen and Ashlyn share the exact same Birth Day together, just different ages. They are good friends of ours so we had a joint dinner. Ashlyn wanted to go to Shirishoni a Japanese Restaurant where they cook in front of you. So that's where we went. After dinner they sang Happy Birthday and brought the girls some Japaneses ice cream. When dinner was all done we all came back to our home for some singing, cake, and to open presents. Ashlyn had a great Birthday with many phone calls from family. In about a week we will have a bowling party for her. She is really excited about that.
