February 8th was our sweet Sammy's 10th birthday. She was so excited for "her" day. Her birthday is the last one in our "birthday season." Here she is with a typical Sam look. She has been the queen of 'faces' since she was a little. All of the pictures of her opening presents are so funny. She has a new expression for each one. The one in this picture is mild compared to others! I love these sweet funny faces. I am so glad to have this fun girl in my life! Happy Birthday Sammy!
Samantha requested math papers and pencils as decorations for her class cupcakes. This is what I came up with. She LOVED them. I wrote all of the math problems and had ONE with a wrong answer. The child in her class that got that cupcake won a small prize. This ensured that all off the children actually checked their math before they ate their cupcake!!
You can always count on a fun reaction from Sam when she opens a gift! Here she is getting the mini tablet that she asked for!
A few days after her birthday Sam had a few friends over for a small party. They decorated cookies, faces, and t-shirts. It was a fun giggly afternoon.
mmm.... cookies and candy!!
