Lauren’s 10th Birthday

Last weekend, my family drove up from southern Minnesota. There were fourteen of us altogether (plus three dogs) so we decided to have Lauren’s birthday party a week early. I brought a chocolate Costco cake, and my mom made Lauren’s favorite – lasagna.

Lauren got a 3-foot-tall Elena of Avalor doll, an Elena of Avalor sword (it lights up and makes noise…) and some Elena of Avalor jewelry. She also got $10 cash, which she is holding up in the photo above.

I bought some new little Elena of Avalor figurines to put on her cake since Costco doesn’t do character cakes.

The photo above was taken yesterday, on her actual 10th birthday. It seems like just yesterday I was in the hospital, recovering from a c-section. Ten years sure went by fast!

I shared more photos on my Facebook page – including some cute pups!
