April 30 is a wonderful day in our family. It is the day we welcomed our first daughter, shortly after noon. She has been such a blessing to our family.
She has always been an extrovert. We would go to softball games, a couple of hours away, and she would have friends within minutes that she would play with all day long (or until the tourney ended for our team).
She has always had a strong will. She knows what she wants and she goes after it. She sets goals to complete and she completes them. She may get frustrated but there have not been many times that the goal wasn't completed in the time frame she had set.
This year, for her birthday, she chose to go to the Asian Buffet in our area. She is big fan of sushi. I can't eat much they have to offer, so I just sat and watched. but I couldn't miss being at her birthday dinner with her!
For her birthday gift, she wanted a mani-pedi. She got one on Saturday, when there would be enough time to fit it in to the day. She ended up with pink and black (every other toe) toenails and her fingernails have plants on them, with a black background. They look really cute.
I bought cupcakes and popcorn. We rented the third Night at the Museum. We popped popcorn and watched some of the movie. We didn't start it until pretty late, because we had to go to JoAnn Fabrics to get stuff to decorate teachers' doors for Teacher Appreciation week. She spent a couple of weeks figuring out how she wanted to do each one. We had three doors to do.
I am so incredibly thankful for that little girl! She makes me smile. She is so good at crafts. She is a great singer. She enjoys doing theater. She loves learning. She is a great daughter and sister.
