Abbie's 9 Already? WOW!!

Happy Birthday Abbie Claire!  We decided this year we wouldn't do parties.  I already discussed that in the post about Mason's birthday.  I think I forgot to post the present Mason ended up getting.  He got a big automatic air soft gun.  We say on the years that they don't have a party that we will get them a bigger present.  Anyway, one of Abbie's friends had her birthday party on Abbie's birthday, so here she is all glammed up from Ella's party.

Isn't this funny?  The girl who wasn't supposed to have a party, somehow managed to have her 2 best friends bring her presents.....which she was SOOO happy about!  Thanks Ashely and Kirsten, you make her feel so good!

SO after we sent the friends home, we asked Abbie where she would like to go for her birthday.  The boys were at a friend's it was just David, Abbie and Me.  She thought for a minute, and then said, "Actually, I just want to go be with my friends, so never mind...I just won't have a birthday dinner...."  What are we?  CHOPPED LIVER?  hahaha....we felt kind of bad that she would rather be with her friends than us!  We totally wanted to be with her, so realized we would need to compromise.....
Obviously, this wasn't David's idea of fun.  Look what a good sport he is.  He was sitting in a chair feeling really awkward wanting to be with Abbie for her birthday.  What a great dad!

Well, I guess I didn't catch the nicest face from Abbie here, but they were ALL so excited when I said we were going to take Abbie and her friends to get a pedicure for her birthday.  They just ate it up!  It was really cute to watch them.  Special little chairs for the girls with the little shes shaped tubs for their feet to be washed.  They had little bottles of water and a mini tv to watch a movie.  Talk about spoiled!  To be fair, the only present that Abbie wanted was a DOG!  I really didn't think we would be able to come through for her.  We looked for a dog, but they were either too expensive or didn't seem like the right kind of dog for our family.
THese girls really seem like our own daughters sometimes.  They are at each other's houses all the time.  They really are Best Friends!  We love Kirsten and Ashley so much!  They said that was the funnest birthday ever!  That was Ashely's first time getting a pedicure.  She LOVED it!!!

Happy 9th Birthday Abbie Claire!  We love you!
