Happy Birthday to Lou!

Lou turned 11 yesterday. She had been sick all week and emerged from her fog of headaches just in time for a special day. She and I began the day with a quiet breakfast together with fruit salad, banana muffins, a rose, and a special card. Later we went to see The Lightning Thief.

We ended the day with dinner and gifts. Life is good when you get a new boom box from which to listen to music and books, an ugly doll, and a watch that is actually a MOOD watch.

Her dinner request was lasagna "without spinach, Mom" and butter cake with strawberry ice cream. Here's her cake in all its glory sitting on the birthday board made by her great-great grandfather.

My little Lou is growing up!

Happy Birthday to your Lou! I love the birthday board, I remember a previous post you did about it. I need to go and look for it. It is my little one's 4th birthday on Monday and I am keen to attempt making one for our family:)

Well happy, happy birthday! Sounds like it was a celebration all day long, which is how it should be. :) :) :)

Did you like Lightning Thief? I haven't taken my girls to see it yet.
