Paprika turned 7 on Friday. She had a great birthday! When she woke up, we sang her Happy Birthday and she had her birthday cupcake...chocolate with chocolate frosting, of course! :-)
We also had birthday cake that night - and we also sang and blew out candles then (but those pictures are on my other camera - so they will have to wait! Haha!)
Paprika was so excited about her birthday, she could not sleep AT ALL the nigh before. Not one wink! She stayed up all night long (seriously, all night). I worried she'd be in a bad mood the next day, but nope! Hardly even a yawn...
It's very exciting being seven years old, you know! ;-)
We decorated the house, of course!
Paprika opened half her presents in the first part of the day. And we saved a few to open with cake at the end of the night.
Mr. M came home early from work, and we decided to go to the beach!
My mom was visiting with us last week (she was here from Indiana!) Here she is building sandcastles with Violet:
Me and sweet Ginger-Bear. She had a great time building sandcastles, and she wanted to stay by my side the whole time. She is such a sweetheart!
Paprika was so excited to get a boogie board for her birthday! She has been asking for one for YEARS - so she was super excited when she opened her present. She wanted to try it out right away (of course!)
After spending hours in the freezing cold water with Mr. M, it was time to go home. But of course, the second Paprika got out of the water, she asked when she could come back! Haha! So we made it a beach weekend- and she got to go boogie boarding again on Saturday.
I have a feeling we'll be spending a lot of time at the beach with this little boogie boarder! ;-)
That night, we had cake opened the rest of her presents - and Ginger got to open a present, too! Paprika at that point hadn't slept in - oh- about 40 hours, but of course she was still not tired! ;-)
Ginger and Paprika went to my bedroom to read books, and they were up until midnight at least. I went in to turn out the lights, and what do you know - Paprika had fallen asleep! Ginger was reading books to Paprika...I don't think she even noticed she was asleep! Ha!
