Monday, Jan. 19 was our Kirsten's 11th birthday. Always bittersweet for parents and exciting for kids. The day was made more special by the fact that school was closed for MLK Day. This gave me the opportunity to spend the day with her and spoil her a little bit. Her friend McKenna brought her doughnuts for breakfast then we went to Giggles Salon in Gallatin for a haircut, fancy braid and mani/pedis. We then picked up two other friends and I took them to the movies. They choose to see 'Annie' and said they really enjoyed it. Dinner was at home with pizza and Jessica's famous strawberry cake. The perfect ending to a 'Happy' birthday!
