Happy 10th Birthday, Abby!!

My baby girl has made it to the double digits!! 10 YEARS OLD!! How does this happen SO fast!! I just can't believe she's ten already!

We decided that since we were going to be in Hutchinson with Grandma and Grandpa Grief the weekend before her birthday that we would celebrate up there! She was pretty happy about celebrating in Kansas!
Abby's favorite cake is chocolate cake with chocolate frosting!
Making the first cut.
Abby is thrilled to have her favorite chocolate cake!

Present time! (Round 1, anyway...She has more presents at home to open on her birthday!)
This was one of Abby's FAVORITE gifts! Bling, bling!!

On her birthday Abby wanted to go shopping and eat at Red Robin! So that's what we did!
Slightly embarrassed to be sung to at Red Robin! (Barely anyone was there!)
My sweet birthday girl!

Apparently we wore Luke out! He fell asleep at Target, slept all the way home (about 45 minutes) and then slept about another hour on the couch once we got home!

Time for more presents!
Abby always thinks that if a box looks like it has clothes in it, it's probably boring clothes. Hence her thoughts about the two that she is holding up here.
She was pleasantly surprised when the first one did not contain clothes, but the MUCH desired Taylor Swift cd!
And yes, the second one was clothes...
Since we had cake and ice cream in Hutch and Abby was supposed to have a softball game the evening of her birthday, I didn't plan a special meal or make another cake. Well, the game got canceled so we ended up eating at our favorite restaurant (Frank & Lola's) and then came home and polished off the rest of the cake!

When I asked Abby how her birthday was, she said, "GREAT!" I'm so happy she enjoyed it! I sure did!
