Ooops. We only had two candles. Jude had the idea to make them into two ones, for 'eleven'. Clever boy.
Her daddy gave her her very own flower garden to plant. Liesel and her cousin had fun planting them on their birthday sleepover. Incidentally don't you remember how much fun sleepovers are for 11 year old girls? It's fun to have cousins close.
We celebrated with a girls night out. Two cousins and two aunts. We went out for Liesel's favorite, sushi (even though she had already eaten sushi with her dad at lunchtime).
Next we went to Starbucks. While the moms enjoyed caramel macchiatos, the girls enjoyed strawberry frappucinos. Yum! We played Headbanz....."Everybody knows but you". You have to guess the word on your head by asking yes and no questions about it.
Lots of laughs were had, especially when Aunt Marlita had "toilet paper" on her forehead.
