Cassi woke up early; I felt her stirring. She slept with me last night. I did my best to talk her into going back to sleep. I don't think it worked. It seemed like only a minute later and she was saying to me, "Come on mom, get up, it's my birthday!"
Cassi also got her very own camera. She's been taking an after school photography class. She shows a real eye for great photos. I think she is quite excited to have her own camera to take back to school when she returns from spring break. And of course, it's pink.
We had a rather low key day and stuck fairly close to home for most of it. It was a gorgeous day so the girls played outside a little bit, then Amber came by and we went to see the movie, Diary of a Wimpy Kid. It was super cute and I think the girls enjoyed it.
After the movie we had a little ice cream cake. It's been a strange birthday week for Cassi because we actually celebrated last week while her Dad was still home by going to Extreme Tubing. (It was a last minute decision and was only supposed to be a small family affair. It turned into a bit more but not the friend party she had thought she'd have this weekend.
I was wondering if she will ever remember this day. I remember my 11th year because I moved to Georgia that year. I don't recall my birthday however, in fact I remember very few of them. Maybe because we will have this blogging journal, she'll have a better chance.
