Birthdays are kind of a big deal at our house.
Many months ago, when Jane Anne saw the flyer that Mary Poppins was coming to Dallas on her birthday, she declared that all she wanted for her birthday was to see the show. Being the Mary Poppins fan(atic) I am, of course, I obliged. So on Sunday, we drove to Dallas, shopped with money JA had been saving, ate at her favorite places, and saw the wonderful show!
We spent the night in Dallas (and let her skip school on her birthday) and ice skated at the Galleria before coming home.
But that’s not all. Since it was her 10th(!!) birthday and I knew she wasn’t expecting any kind of party, we threw her a surprise tea party — Mary Poppins-themed, naturally.
Jane Anne was completely surprised! The girls had a tea party and then made some “stained-glass” kites.
It was a great birthday! We’re so proud of our 10-year old!!
