My Baby is Ten Years Old!!

Well, I can hardly believe it but my baby Kailey just celebrated her ten year birthday today. That can't be right can it?

We have been celebrating all weekend. Somehow her birthday seemed like a huge milestone for me. All four of my kids are now in double digits. Why this is significant to me, I am not sure, but I do remember making a big deal out of my own tenth birthday so maybe that has something to do with it.

Last night we made shabu shabu for dinner & the kids just had so much fun. We were laughing all night. Then we lit a fire in the fire pit out back & made s'mores.

I also made these special cupcakes for the party today. Kailey loved them.

I wanted them to be funky cool for my little Kailey. She definitely has her own style & likes things bright, bold, & colorful. Rachel helped me frost them, it was her idea to put the red in the middle. I think they look pretty cool.

We had Kailey's party at the local ice rink, Bridgewater Sports Arena. We got there around 11:30 am & waited for her 7 friends to arrive. So plus our four we had a nice crowd of kids. It was really funny to watch them all shuffle around the ice until they got confident. We took a break half way & got all the kids pizza & drinks & then a number of them went back out on the ice. We were there until about 3 pm. Aside from some bumps from falls on the ice, one bloody nose, & some chilly kids, everyone seemed to have a super fun time.

I wish I could be at home for the rest of the evening, but I have to run out for a board meeting for our swim club.

It has been a long day! Hope everyone had a great weekend.
