Today is my birthday! Some might be superstitious about Friday the 13th, but today turned out to be a lucky day for me.
I took chocolate cupcakes with pink frosting to school to share with my friends at lunch. When I got home from school there was a small stack of presents waiting for me.
My parents said I could open them right away so I sat down and got to work. Cricket was right there to help.
The first present was a pink hoodie.
The second box looked like a shoe box.
I tore the paper with Cricket close by to supervise.
Pink puddle jumping boots!
The last box looked like it could be an American Girl doll.
After tearing away one corner I saw, “Contains one doll and one book.” I had a couple of dolls on my wish list so I wasn’t sure who it would be.
I was excited to find Addy!
I took her out of her box right away, I think she looks a little like me.
I am so happy and thankful for all of my gifts! Lasagna dinner with ice cream cake will be the perfect way to round out my best birthday yet.
