Ava's birthday fell on a Tuesday which meant she got to celebrate with her friends at school. That morning the girls and I went to the donut shop for a birthday breakfast. Ava was so excited to pick anything that she wanted. She tried to convince me to let her have two kolaches and four sprinkle donuts but we comprised with one of each. :)
We were actually on time for school - a rare occurrence these days. Ava got to take a cookie cake to share with her friends. When she brought it home later that day the whole pink crown had been eaten. Apparently her whole class loves the color pink! :) Carli got to take mini double doozey's to her class. They had a chocolate allergy in her class so we had to compromise with sugar cookies instead of chocolate chip.
We also had a mini family celebration on her actual birthday. We sang her the birthday song and let her open her present from us.
We gave her a "soft" shirt and shorts. The story behind this is that last year I found a drifit shirt at a garage sale for $1 for both Carli and Logan. They did not have one in Ava's size. Carli, being an awesome big sister, is always quick to point out that Ava doesn't have a soft shirt like she and Logan do. So, Momma and Daddy remedied that situation and paid full price for Ava a "soft shirt."
I think she liked it! :) It is actually made to fit snug. I didn't like that so we are going to take her back to the store and find one that fits more like a shirt.
Such was part 1 of Ava's birthday celebration...next, the party!!
