Birthday Girl

Numero 10 is a pretty big deal. I mean, this is the first number with double digits. Then there is always the significance that most of us have 10 fingers to count, and ten toes on our feet. AND the most common number system used today is based on the number ten. The term of 10 years gets a fancy new name...a decade!

After this very official introduction, I would like to present to you our very official 10 year old daughter, Rebekah! Can I believe it? Why no I cannot believe it! It seems like just yesterday I was rocking my little baby, and now she is a big tall 10 year old!

It is our tradition that we often celebrate Bekah's birthday on her HALF birthday. I mean, we do celebrate her actual birthday on the day, but her party is usually planned on a different day further from Christmas and closer to warm weather. This year her birthday fell on Daddy's surgery date, so we made some adjustments. We did the usual tradition...breakfast in bed.

It isn't common for her special day to be on a school day, so she was pleasantly pleased to be with her friends at school as the princess of the day! We sent snacks and she had a great time. That night we had Mexican at the local dive and they sang a Spanish version of the birthday song. They even put a little ice cream on her nose! She received some super presents, and gave the day two thumbs up!

This was one was from Mommy and Daddy. Bekah is our crafty kid, so this was given to her along with all the materials for hours of fun and piles and piles of messy and fabulous projects!

This was a big hit, compliments of Grandma Dorothy. It could, quite possibly, be the most annoying present in the entire world. It's a voice manipulator...but it was a big hit. Bekah even asked, "Mom, when this runs out of batteries...will I be able to get new ones?" She already knew the answer.

A new pink even lights up!

"Scratch pads" of money! She's rich!

10 dollars for a 10 year old...Thanks Aunt Sally and Uncle Jeff!

She also got a movie for her Disney Mix Max...iPod thing!

Happy big 10 Bekah! Caitlin has a voice manipulator as well. You are right--it IS super annoying but cool at the same time.
I really can't believe our girls are 10--and to think our 4 year olds will be 5 around the same time as each other. Ugggg
Who said they could get so old???
