You'll Never Believe Me Again...

I know that I promised prom pictures on my next post! However, today was a very special day...not only was it was Memorial Day and an extra day off work, but it was also our sweet Jaelyn's birthday!!!! She turned eight years old today!!

We've always allowed our girls to have a birthday party to celebrate with their friends, but each birthday (on their special day), they get to choose wherever they want to eat for their birthday dinner.

This year Jae chose Chili's to celebrate her special day! After the last incident that I had there, I wasn't too keen on going. However, it was not my special day, it was Jae's. So, Chili's it was! We had a great visit. I didn't see anyone (a waitress/waiter) blowing their nose this time.

Poor Jae ate so much of her dinner that she couldn't finish her birthday dessert. In fact, she ended up taking only five or six bites of it.

I wanted to share some pictures of her special day with all of you.










I hope that you all enjoyed your holiday weekend! Ours was VERY busy, but we totally enjoyed it!

Have a great week ahead!

You have such a beautiful family! Happy B-day to your sweet girl. My boys b-day was on Sunday:) Makes for a busy holiday weekend,huh?

I'm glad this visit to Chili's went better;)

Laura said...

Hope she had a great birthday! We had a horrible experience at Chili's on Mother's Day! I emailed the corporate office and they apologized and sent me $30! If you aren't satisfied, always let them know so they can improve their service. We will still go to Chili's, but we won't be having that same waiter! ;)

Darlene said...

Oh what a beautiful family! OK - God did a number with you and your husband...picking and choosing what kid would have what part of each of your faces...BOY THOSE pixs really show that...it's so cool. This daughter has this face structure from dad and this daughter has this smile line from mom...I love seeing that in families.

Happy birthday Jae! Blessings!
