Birthday celebrations

Around our house, we usually celebrate birthdays for a few days! 
On Friday, I made Anna Riley her "special" birthday pancakes...pb and chocolate chip pancakes with m&ms and sprinkles on top! :)  I sang Happy Birthday to her and she attempted to sing with me. 

Friday afternoon, Mom came to stay with the girls so I could do some last minute errands for the party on Saturday.  The weather was nasty Friday night but we had plans to take Anna Riley to dinner and for dessert.  Mom decided to just stay home with Ava Kate rather than going with us since it was such a messy night. 

Anna Riley loves going to eat Mexican.  We took her to Iguana grill last year for her birthday so we decided to go there again.  She thinks all the decorations in there are so pretty! :)

After dinner, we headed to Yogurt Mountain!  When we walked in, Anna Riley started clapping.  She loves her "ice cone" as she calls it.  I let her pick what to put on her yogurt...of course she had m&ms, reeces, sprinkles and hot fudge!

We then headed to Toys R Us to let her pick out a toy.  I have never let her just go in that store and so she was so excited.  She went from one toy to the next.  She finally found a Strawberry Shortcake grocery cart that she wanted and she pushed it all around the store. 

When she got home, she got her other present from us...an Anywhere chair form Pottery Barn with her name on it.

Saturday morning, we were pretty busy with getting everything together for the party but we stopped to sing Happy Birthday again! 
She also got new bedding for her bed.
