|waking up another year older|
|this is what we woke up to -frigid temperatures. The high only reached 20 degrees. BRRR! taking that yesterday it was in the sixties. Phoebe wasn't too happy waking up to snow-she likes it warm and she didn't even get a snow day out of it.|
|the birthday girl before she heads off to school where she would get to hand out cupcakes to her classmates, get sung to, and wear the special birthday shirt.|
|getting picked up from school by her dad|
|coming home to presents|
|she LOVES to do art- one of her brothers gave her these great doodle books that start a picture for you and then you are supposed to finish it or they give you an idea of what to draw and design.|
|She got a "Kit" American Girl doll|
|She got the boots she's been pining for. She also got a shirt, earrings, a game, and some barbies because she says all she has are Isabel's old ones.|
|she chose to go to Red Robin for dinner-next picture will tell you why.|
|She wanted to get sung happy birthday to by the wait staff. I personally can't think of anything worse than being sung to in public -but Phoebe as you can see loved it!|
|She also chose to go to the high school play of A Christmas Carol|
She loves school-I had her parent teacher conference yesterday where she had a glowing report. Her teacher says she is like a little grown up(I think that's a good thing??) I think because she's a pretty serious kid who is very focused about her work. Her teacher also said she is always very willing to help anyone who needs it. She is still very shy, she doesn't give a lot away with her expressions. People at church think it's a challenge to get Phoebe to speak or smile at them. I like to think she's just careful-because if she knows you well -it's another story and she has lots of little girl friends who she lets loose with and has fun.
We completely LOVE her to bits! We hope this coming year is full of wonderful and magical things for her!
