Evie's day started with me running out the door to get a mammogram. It was my last chance to get it for free before ending my relationship with an actual health insurance company. I arrived home to find her happy and playful. It was almost 11am and everyone seemed hungry so I suggested Chick Fil A for lunch.
I failed to realize that Evie's birthday falls on a holiday week (between Christmas and New Years) meaning lots of kids out of school and available to eat at CFA. It was so crowded we couldn't find seats! There were so many kids that Evie and Vi huddled close to mom and dad. We took our food and ate at home, no big deal.
After lunch I went downstairs to blow up balloons and wrap presents while dad made the cake.
We decided on a unicorn cake because Evie was born year of the horse. It was spectacular! Family arrived and she shrieked over every person. It was a shriek that continued throughout the day!
Presents piled up in a corner and food was presented on a pink table cloth. Evie was positioned at the front of the table with the cake and candles. As the entire family launched into the Happy Birthday song Evie screamed "NOOOOOOOO" and emphatically demanded we all stop singing. It's all on camera for her to enjoy when she gets older.
I have to say, this is the first child who has screamed "NOOOOO" during his/her birthday song. Other than hating her birthday song, she seemed to enjoy the remainder of her day, although she continued to scream "NO" every time she caught me taking a photo (sorry for the blurry shots, it's about all I have to represent the day)
