Megan's Soiree

Wednesday, November 19, 2008

Happy 6th Birthday, Megan!

Tonight we had a small family birthday party for Megan's #6! She said that she wanted to have a soiree (swah-ray), so everyone came dressed up and we had some dancing and she performed her ice cream song for us. She looked so pretty in her flower girl dress from Katie's wedding. I made her a pink striped sock monkey (she told me she wanted one after I made the first one for jeremy) out of socks she picked out at Target. She got lots of great gifts- a learn how to play the harmonica book with a harmonica, a pretty necklace and rings, some fancy nancy books (those were a hit with all the kids-she called them fancy wancy, LOL), a furReal Friends baby bird that drinks from a bottle and sqwaks and flaps it's wings, and the coup de grace- Grandma and Grandpa got Megan an American Girl doll- Mia, the ice skater. They realized that Megan's hair was done just the same as the doll's which Megan thought was soooo cool.

She was so happy to have the family here and the Knudsens who couldn't make it to her kid birthday party on Saturday (oops- and Lynnette, but I was counting you as family :o). She was sad to not have Grandpa Shumway here, but he got to listen on speaker phone as she opened presents. As always we missed the out of town family- the Pages and Harwards (and everyone that name entails) and love you mucho!

I just read your comment and started laughing. It is funny that it seems like yesterday we were cheering for Highland and now we are cheering on our children. Crazy!! Didn't we have so much though when we were cheerleaders. Your comment brought back great memories, thanks!!

I can't believe you have a six year old daughter-that is crazy. She is beautiful and it looks like she got everything she wanted and more.
