Payton's Birthday week

We started off Payton's birthday week last Sunday with taking her to Disney On Ice. Grandma watched Reagan so Tung and I could take Payton special just with us. She wore her special birthday dress, sparkle shoes and crown. We had a great time! She wasn't so sure about the Cars and Lion King but was totally glued to the Little Mermaid and the Fairies. After it was over and we were leaving she got really upset and we had no idea why, so we stopped and asked her what was wrong. She was upset that everyone else had a "treat" and she didn't. They had SO much stuff for sale and it was so expensive we weren't going to pay $10 for a snowcone or whatever, so we told her we'd stop and get her a cookie before going home. She was fine with that and we stopped and got Oreo's at Food Lion :)

Tuesday night, we made cupcakes for her birthday party at Gail's house. She's all about helping dump in the ingredients and she cracks me up trying to say the word "ingredient" she almost has it exactly right.
Yesterday when we came home, she asked me if she could have a cupcake, I told her no to wait until after dinner and we could eat one after we put the frosting on, she had this sneaky little smile on her face and pulled a cupcake out from behind her back. She'd climbed up on the counter and taken one and already started to unwrap it! So I caved and we ate cupcake then, and then had another after we frosted them. She helped dump in and sift all the powdered sugar and then just kept wanting to stick her finger in the bowl and lick the frosting!

Friday was her party at Miss Gail's, she was most excited for the goody bags. She must have asked me if I had them 5 times, I forget everything else, I guess she was afraid I'd forget those too! She loved all of her presents and even slept in the new princess crown and high heel play shoes.
Saturday all of our friends and family came and we had a great time. Payton got a lot of princess stuff and dresses, does everyone know her or what?! We had a lot of fun.
Sunday afternoon we just relaxed, Payton painted and I saw Reagan grab her toes for the first time. Tung said he'd seen her do it before but I didn't know that, but I saw her for the first time grab them. It's so fun to see her starting to show her personality.
What a great weekend, and I'm glad it's only a 3 day week because I'm excited to have 4 whole days with my family!
