We had quite the surprise on Selena's birthday, her youngest brother Michael William was born at 12:03 a.m. She was pretty excited to think she was celebrating her birthday with her youngest brother. He is joining the Foster family with their brother Junior, which comes with much joy and relief.
For her actual birthday party we had our friends Aunt Kelly and Tony over for cake and ice cream. A tradition we have had since Selena's first birthday, I don't think she could ever imagine a birthday without her Aunt Kelly there. She informed me this year she wanted to decorate her own cake, so I didn't run out and order one. While we didn't get one baked, we purchased it, and asked for the kit so she could indeed decorate it herself, the end result was Selena's birthday cake.
We did something a little different this year with Selena's birthday, we took her to the store and allowed her to pick out her very own birthday present. She had no problem knowing exactly what she wanted, and was so excited to see that they had one left in the store. She picked out Pop the Pig, game. I have to admit for a kid's game it is pretty fun, simple, and packed with surprises.
Some of the other gifts Selena received were some Poly Pockets, My Little Ponies, a fuzzy warm blanket and a new outfit. I would say that she got a little spoiled this year for her birthday, but I guess she deserves it. We had fun between celebrating during the week at Chuck E. Cheese, and then the celebration at home, it was a great 7th Birthday for Selena.
Just a couple more pictures of all her fun on her birthday at Chuck E. Cheese! Now to finish getting ready for Christmas!
