It was fun to see how excited Alexis got about her birthday. I was up until 1 the night before getting things ready for her party and for her birthday. I was thinking that she would wake up early, but luckily she slept in, so I was able to get a little bit more sleep then I had thought I would. Here is a picture I snapped of her birthday table the night before, after I put it together.
When she finally woke up she ran straight downstairs to see her table.
This next picture is a little blurry, but I had to post it anyways. Alexis was so excited when she opened up a present from Levi and found three packs of Gomus (these little eraser things that come in all different kinds of shapes that come apart.) She immediately reached over the table to give Levi a hug. Lately these two always seem to be at each others throats so this was a pleasant sight to see =)
I think it's so funny, some of the toys kids love these days. Here she is with her zhu zhu pet babies that Tori got her. She has been wanting some fore quite some time!
I had another game planned after that. It was a smelling a tasting game where they had to be blindfolded and guess what they were tasting and smelling. I gave them the option of playing the game, or playing outside, and they opted to play outside. That was fine with me, because it gave me a chance to take a little breather. They had so much fun playing on our swing that Brandon made. I didn't get pictures though!! =(
All of her friends got her such thoughtful presents. It was so fun to see Alexis open them. She was so excited about each one, and immediately gave each friend a hug after opening their present.
