Tess's Tidbits: Happy Birthday, Mama!

Today, Mama is turning 30!  We wanted to wish her a Happy Birthday.  So, Happy Birthday, Mama! :)  I hope your 30th year is full of wonderful memories. :)

I had the privilege of going to Mama's combined birthday party last Sunday afternoon.  (Mama, Grandmama, and Mama's sister-in-law all have birthdays in September, so they always do a combined family party.)  It was a lot of fun, and I was honored to be the only doll Mama brought with her. :)  I thought I'd share just a few pics from the day.

We started with a trip to Panda Express for lunch after church.  Yum!!

Here I am at Mimi's house, next to the pretty cake that Mimi made.  Do you like my party dress?  I felt quite festive. :)

A closer look at the cake.  It was DELICIOUS!!

Here are all of the wonderful snacks we had to eat:  salad, pasta salad, fruit, veggies, hummus, pretzel thins, crackers, cheese, meat, and cake.  I was really glad Mama decided to set me up next to the cake.  I got to sneak all sorts of snacks when the humans weren't looking. ;)

Mama, Grandmama, and Mama's sister-in-law all got some nice gifts.  Of course, my favorite of Mama's gifts was this amazing bunk bed that was just my size!!

I had to try it out for myself. ;)  It will most likely end up being used for Emma and Charlie, but I pretended it was for Hailey and me anyway. :)

Mama has a slumber party coming up this weekend for her and all of her friends.  She still hasn't announced which of us she'll be taking to that.  We'll keep you posted once we find out. :)

Once again, Happy Birthday, Mama.  I hope you have a wonderful day. :)

Thanks, Mia. :) I always feel so fancy in my dress. It's one of my favorites...besides my regency dress, of course. ;)

The bunk beds are great! All of us have been oohing and aahing over them since Mama got them. :) They were a present from Grandmama.

I'll be sure to pass on your birthday wishes to Mama! :)
