The boys got her 2 books - Pinkalicious (from Sebastian) and Purplelicious (from Isaac). She also got a Tinkerbell mini backpack and Tinkerbell soundtrack CD and hair clips and another game (Princesses) for her new Leapster... But the grand finale was the one thing that she said she wanted time and time again whenever anyone would ask her about her birthday... a ballerina music box... also Tinkerbell-inspired. At the end of the movie, Tink repairs a ballerina music box and returns it to Wendy. Apparently that has really gotten her wheels turning, and she has been wanting one and requesting one for several weeks. Can I just tell you those things are NOT easy to find...in stores anyway. But I found a really really cute one online for only about $40. It's blue with butterflies and ballerinas on the outside with pink velvet on the inside and a little spinning dancing ballerina. It's so pretty, and watching her examine it was beyond precious! Her eyes lit up. And she kept opening it and closing it and re-opening it. And she peeked in the little mirror that's in the box. She even put all of her hair clips in it. She was thrilled! That made my heart happy.
Anyway, after a quick dinner, we did what we could to really actually enjoy the ice cream cake before we headed out the door for 2 baseball games. Ah, well. We had a good day. We had fun playing together at the games. And we were all together as a family, even if it wasn't our typical birthday celebration.
