On the eve of her birthday we took her to Toys R Us to pick some presents. She of course wanted the entire store, and we had to narrow down her choices. We then ventured to Chuck-E-Cheese for some more fun.
Her actual birthday she woke up to balloons everywhere, and a birthday muffin (complete with candles). I took her to the mall to get her nails done, and she loved it. We then played, ate, and rode the carousel. That night we went to my in laws to celebrate with cake and presents.
She seemed to have had a great birthday, even without a party.
