Today is McKayla's 4th birthday!
Last year we started what I hope to be a tradition. Each year, on her birthday, she gets to pick where we go out to eat and then we take her to buy a toy. This year, she picked Western Sizzlin' as her lunch choice (and a good choice I might add!). She loves going there and always gets mac n' cheese and fried okra (or "oppa" as she calls it LOL). We usually meet Grandpa and Uncle Bryan there too, so that might be part of her love of it. This time though, it was just the three of us. I told the server that today was her birthday and she was supposed to have had an announcement done over the intercom, but sadly that didn't happen. She did, however, give McKayla a balloon. :-)
|Yes this picture is similar to the above one, but I|
couldn't choose between the 2, so I had to post both.
Then it was time for McKayla to choose where she wanted to go pick out a toy and just like last year, she picked Build A Bear (if you couldn't see a pattern in my posts, we LOVE Build A Bear LOL).
She picked a pretty pink kitty (actually, the very same one LyAnna had chosen on Lilly's Birthday) and named her "Kitty Cat". :-D
Then it was time to pick out a heart. The lady had her rub the heart on her belly so she'll never be hungry. She had to jump 4 Times (for her age),
spin around like a ballerina, (actually, the lady just said to spin around but McKayla took it up a notch LOL).
Then she needed to kiss the heart so Kitty Cat would always know love and then place the heart inside.
Of course Kitty Cat needed a bath afterwards. McKayla stood on the "spray" controller and instructed Daddy on how to bathe her properly.
She decided Kitty Cat didn't need any clothes b/c Pixie (Ly's pink cat) didn't, although Pixie DID have clothes but the last time McKayla saw her, she was "naked". Haha
Then apparently they decided to deliver Hot Dogs. (Notice John's enthusiastic face? Yeah, he hates shopping LOL)
This Saturday she's having a My Little Pony themed party at the local playground with the rest of the family and friends. Should be fun!
Happy 4th Birthday McKayla!!!! We love you very much!
