Yesterday, we celebrated my little girl’s 7th birthday. I am still a bit in shock. I just can’t believe she is 7 already. It seems like such a short time ago I was holding this beautiful little baby in my arms. She’s still my baby, though, and will always be!
So, as is tradition in our family, my little miss got a pancake breakfast…complete with 7 candles. She went with a slightly more traditional approach than her brother did on his birthday. She wanted her pancakes topped with butter, maple syrup, powdered sugar, and a big squirt of whipped cream. Yummy!
And, of course, we sang “Happy Birthday” to the birthday girl…
Make a wish and blow out the candles!
The whole day revolved around my little girl. She got to play the games she wanted, watch the shows she wanted, and pick the meals she wanted. It’s nice to be pampered, especially on your birthday.
For lunch, my little sweetie chose a pasta dish I just recently “created”. It’s a yummy cold pasta with Italian dressing, fresh tomatoes, Parmesan and Mozzarella cheeses, and fresh from the garden parsley and basil. So very delicious and one of my daughter’s new favorite dishes.
After class, we took a swim in our pool. This was the first swim of the year, so it was a special treat for my little girl’s big day. The water was perfect and the kid’s had a blast splashing around…and so did their momma and daddy!
My little girl was also in charge of deciding what we would all eat for dinner. And what did she choose for her birthday dinner? Oh, just Chicken Tikka Masala! You know, a typical dish for a 7 year old to choose…NOT! I’m so proud of both of my kiddos for not being picky and (almost) always willing to try new things. This dish has been a favorite in our family for years. And my daughter was not disappointed with her choice, both she and her brother devoured dinner!
We had a wonderful, fun-filled day, celebrating my little girl’s 7th (boo-hoo) birthday! Now, on to planning for her party this weekend. I will be a very, very busy momma for the next 2 days, and my sweet little angel is worth every single minute of it. I am so blessed! Happy Birthday to you, my sweet girl!
