The Friday of Jenna's actual birthday, I had to work. It stunk, but the timing was pretty off considering I had just gone back to work. I did take off a few hours early, intending to just come home and spend a few hours with her before her friend/s came to spend the night.
Well, what that turned into was a plan for decorating since Jenna had never really had any decorating done for her birthday.
147 Million Orphans shirt. I hope this is only the beginning of her heart being open to the orphan crisis.
Then, we had her birthday dinner of pizza and the girls played around at home until a couple other friends joined later that evening. We had bought Jenna something she had wanted for years on her birthday...
I think over all, Jenna had a great birthday! She got some nice stuff and she enjoyed it all, but it wasn't tons of stuff like she usually gets.
I'm glad she had a good time and I'm super happy I got to decorate for her. I am officially the mother of a TWEEN!!!
