Happy Birthday to Madeline!

Madeline is 10!  She's the first child in the house to reach double digits - quite a milestone!  While we don't have parties for individual birthdays, we do have some traditions that make the birthday child's day extra special.  They wake up to a huge sign hanging over their door.  They eat on a red "You Are Special" plate for each of their meals.  They get to choose what to eat at each meal.  We make a cookie cake and the birthday child gets to decorate it.  And the favorite tradition - the birthday child gets one present for each year they are old.  We did, however, decide that it will be capped out at ten presents!  Madeline had a great time opening her ten presents and playing with them the rest of the day.
       
2 of her favorite gifts - hair dressing chair (from Grandma and Grandpa) and cape that I made for her out of an old hand towel.  She and Haley spend hours doing doll hair!       
 
She had fun icing and decorating her cookie cake.

God Bless!
