Celebrating her 6th Birthday

For Morgan's birthday, we first opened presents at home. She received the electronic game version of Guess Who?, unicorn Webkins, Magic Fabric Kit, Geomate Jr (a simple geocaching device for kids), a pair of binoculars (which were actually my five year service reward from my company but she was still thrilled to have her own pair) and we finally broke down and got her a Nintendo DS.

Then we went over to her friend's Roan's house for pizza and cupcakes (which Roan made especially for her). Roan was not going to be able to make Morgan's party, but still wanted to her help her celebrate. The two had a great time playing outside despite the rain. Unfortunately, I don't have any pictures to share, as it's becoming more and more common for me to forget my camera behind.

Morgan's present from Roan was a Cheetah Pillow Pet, something she's wanted for a long time.

The next morning, Morgan told me "Mom. I still love my pillow pet, but it isn't a cheetah." Taken aback, I asked her why she would think that. She proceeded to explain to me that cheetah's have solid black spots while jaguars have the black circles with the dark brown on the inside, unless of course it's a black jaguar because there are two different types, and since her pillow pet does not have solid black spots he is a jaguar. I had to Google cheetah spots just to make sure she was correct. And of course she was!

Happy birthday, Morgan! The part about the Cheetah pillow is funny! I had Matt read it and he laughed--that's something Connor would say/do. Connor has the DS and we love it as much as he does. It makes long car rides a little easier. ; )

Happy 6th birthday Morgan! Tyler has that Guess Who game and loves it (and sadly I forgot that it was even elctronic because we started playing it the first day without batteries and apparently never remembered to put them in. LOL). He desperately wants a Pillow Pet too. LOL. She's too funny with her knowledge about animals spots!
