So yesterday was Elayna's actual birthdate so she got to pick where we went for dinner - and she chose BP's with Opa & Oma. She didn't want to order the kids meals, she wanted us all to share some pizzas. It was cute and the kids were great. When we got home, she got to open gifts from us - she got a Littlest Pet Shop house (to keep all those little guys together) and a doll sticker book. She's easy to please and loved them.
Today she's out on her first annual birthday lunch and shopping trip with her Oma and cousin Kristina (her birthday is 4 days after Elayna). She gets to pick where to lunch this year since it's her first time, and she chose a tea shop that puts on a whole tea party with little party sandwiches. She was super excited and is hoping to get some sparkly purple shoes that caught her eye a couple days ago. We'll see what she comes home with :)
I promised Chantel that we'd do something fun while Elayna was gone and Alyssa's napping, so we went down to the sewing room and she picked out some fabric for a dolly blanket, matching pillowcase and a little pillow. They turned out cute and have been entertaining her ever since.
