She is "SO EXCITED" and it is really funny. This year is the first time she has really understood the whole birthday thing and she has pretty much had a 3 day celebration, so awesome all around.
On Saturday she had her first ever birthday party. We went to McDonalds and she had about 8 friends come along. She was so happy and had so much fun, it was wonderful to see. She had her face painted, and got some presents and played games and ate ice cream cake and then came home and ate lollies all afternoon and crashed out at about 4.30 to sleep for 2 hours, then went back to bed at 9.30 so I am pretty sure she had a good time and wore herself out.
Today she had Aunty Rita and the kids come over for a visit and they brought cupcakes with pink crystal sugar and more presents for her and she had everyone sing for her again which she loves. Grandma and Grandpa came over for a visit and then for dinner we went to a Chinese restaurant and she had yummy dinner.
Tomorrow she is getting more presents and shopping with Grandma so there is bound to be more spoiling. It is fun, but I think Paige is struggling a little so I got her a little something as well, just so she is not completely left out. We took Paige with us to get Charli's presents today and she was told that if she mentioned any of the presents to Charli, Grandma is not going to buy her any Polly Pockets, it is now 10.15 and she still hasn't spilled the beans, I think the threat worked. Either that or she is just growing up and understanding better how to keep a secret. Not sure if that is a good thing or a bad thing.....hmmmm.
All in all, it has been fun so far and I am sure it will continue tomorrow when she is officially the birthday girl.
