The Second Best Birthday Ever

Rose thanks everyone for their birthday wishes. She announced that this was her second best birthday right after her one in Disneyland last year. She qualified her statement by saying at Disneyland she got to go on fun ride, sleep in a hotel and see real princesses which is why it was the better one.

So what does a six year old think is second best to a birthday at Disneyland?

Well, she ate cheese pizza for dinner, decorated her cupcakes, blew out a #6 candle after her brother played Happy Birthday on his guitar, ate cupcakes, opened gifts (a High School Musical sleeping bag, a knee length button down brown sweater, kid makeup kit, a singing High School Musical pen and a Camp Rock nail polish set) and watched American Idol until ten o'clock with the family (the kidlets never watch prime time TV unless it's Clone Wars or stay up that late on a weeknight so it was a huge treat though they had to keep covering their eyes during ads for scary movies and shows.)

Of course, the two older ones wanted to know if they got to pick a show to watch on their birthdays. Hubby glanced my way with a now-see-what-you've-started-look. In case you haven't guessed already, our TV is not on much. Clone Wars is the only thing that is never missed.

I just hope all the birthdays this year go off as well as Rose's did. Mackenna is thinking about hers coming up in May, but Finn already told me he wants a Clone Wars birthday in April. Now that one will be a blast to put on! Light saber duels, anyone?

What was your best birthday ever? What would your ideal best birthday ever be?

It sounds like you all had a super day! I love it that Rose made her own cupcakes--how sweet.

Me? Birthday? At this point I'd love a birthday with a cake and everyone healthy. Um...the cake is very negotiable. I'll take the other part of the perfect birthday wish!

I look forward to hearing about the upcoming celebrations. I've got to check out the Clone Wars. :)

I'm so glad Rose had the second best birthday ever. Sounds like a good time was had by all.

Nowadays, my birthdays are just a day on the calendar and if it's celebrated then it's a good thing.

My ideal best birthday would be a gathering of friends and family just hanging around and enjoying each other's company.

Have a great Wednesday.

With me anymore birthdays are just another day, but my sister still has a birthday dinner for me and her daughter. I do enjoy spending time with the family so I guess they are all good birthday. I can't think of a better way to spend your birthday.

Cute! Yay Rose!

Hm, I like to think my best birthday hasn't come yet - I'm banking on my "golden birthday" being a big one - though... practically speaking, it probably will be regular :P

Sounds as though Rose had a nice Birthday! My ideal birthday? One with family and friends. But, would probably just be usual with family. *G*

I hope your day is going well.

How wonderful Rose enjoyed "her day".

For my past birthday I got to choose a movie of my choice (Australia) and had a nice dinner out with my hubby and my two daughters and their significant others. And my daughter made a cake with some presents too. It was the nicest I've had in quite a while.

The ideal birthday would definitely include a Carvel ice cream cake.
