Allyson's 12th Birthday!

Our sweet Allyson celebrated her 12th birthday last week. As usual, her birthday fell during China Camp so we allowed her to choose a restaurant for a birthday dinner after camp. Her choice: The Cheesecake Factory. Smart girl. :-) She ordered pasta (no surprise), and a snickers cheesecake. Yummy!

Allyson also had a swim birthday party at home the day before we left for camp, and invited a few friends over. She received some really nice gifts from her friends, but the one thing she was truly hoping for came from mom and dad...a cell phone!! She also received a tiger phone case that she wanted. Apparently, she was the last child in the area to have a cell phone (or at least that is what has been reported). LOL

We ordered a flip-flop cake from a friend at church, but things don't always go as planned. Just hours before the party, we received a call stating that the friend was on his way to the ER with a collapsed lung. (We are happy to report that he is better now!)
The party must go on, so I headed to Wal-Mart and picked up a pre-decorated cake. It was cute and "girly" and tasted good. Claire was sad that Allyson didn't get the cake she wanted, so she begged to put some trick candles on the cake...sweet sister! lol I was so proud of Allyson for having a great attitude about the whole situation. She later told us it was "the best birthday ever"! :-)
