Double Digits

It's true.... time flies! Isabelle turned 10 on March 9th! These past 10 years have proved to be full of joy, laughter, excitement, fear, nervousness, tears, smiles, songs, hugs, kisses, love and just about everything you can imagine. Having a daughter brings something new just about every day! We're very proud of the young lady Isabelle is becoming.

Isabelle's day started with breakfast in bed.

Followed by her presents from us - a set of nail polishes and an alarm clock / radio that also docks and charges her iPod Touch.

Grandma Diane and Grandpa Clyde visited us in the morning.

Diane & the Birthday Girl
Isabelle opened a Lego Friends set from them plus two smaller Lego kits.

Grandpa Steve and Grandma Barb visited in the afternoon.

Isabelle opened a Butterfly Dreamlites and a unicorn Pillow Pet from them.

Isabelle requested, as usual, a "Caffeine Cake" from Grandma Barb. Isabelle doesn't like traditional cake, but she loves this one!

Here we are with our Birthday Girl!

And a goofy shot...

That evening, we had a birthday party for friends. The theme was a dance party, so our basement was decorated with a disco ball and a "scene banner" along the walls.

The girls had pizza from Zanzi's then had a good time dancing and playing their own games. Here they are running around the pole.

I made an ice cream cake again this year, a copycat recipe of Dairy Queen's cakes. It was delicious, although I admit the decoration could have been much better!

Time to open gifts from friends. Most of the gifts were gift cards. Rowan gave her a book, Out of My Mind, that she's really enjoying.

Seth got to hang out with Rowan's brother, Holden. The boys had a great time together!

And of course, a goofy pose
Happy Birthday, Isabelle!!
