To celebrate Lexie's birthday this year, we went to see Beauty and the Beast at the movie theater. While Lexie was definitely looking forward to it, Ellie was excitedly counting down the days and insisted on wearing her Belle dress.
Fun at the movie theater! The kids were excited that we went to a theater with reclining seats!
After the movie we went to On the Border for a birthday lunch. Lexie got to stand on her chair and twirl a napkin while being serenaded and thought it was absolutely hilarious. And Ellie clearly enjoyed the chocolate syrup on her ice cream!
That evening we had birthday cake with our neighbors and the kids played outside.
On her official NINTH birthday, we brought lunch (and donuts!) to school and ate with Lexie and her friends.
That evening she opened up her presents-- mostly new clothes!!
And we finished up the birthday cake! Happy birthday, sweet girl!!
