We had Hazel's birthday dinner a few days early because Brett was in Munich for a conference on her real birthday. She asked for shrimp for dinner because apparently she had some at Aunt Megan's house last summer and liked it. Spoiled. :) We never have shrimp because I don't like it. But I did make some coconut shrimp alfredo for her and it was pretty good.
Very out-of-focus picture and Wyatt looks very crazy-scary, but we do all love Hazel!
Books!! (The first two of The Incorrigible Children of Ashton Place series) Jethro tried to steal them and read them first because he thinks he owns every book in this house... but we got him sorted out. :)
I love the suspense that the other kids have watching the present-opener. :)
Rollerblades! The other kids have all also tried to steal these.
And... riding boots! Fancy. They are too big however, and I can't take them back so she'll have to wait to wear them I guess.
Tonight Brett and I took her out to dinner for her 10th birthday date. She chose to have Doner Kebabs, and they were very good. The guy at the kebab place just randomly gave her an icecream cone afterwards. He must have sensed it was her special night. :) Brett also bought her a pocketknife. When we got home we walked to the bench overlooking the farms and had 'the talk.' Fun night. I love my Hazel Bean!
