We started Alina's big 9th birthday weekend on Friday, her birthday. At school she was honored with a special birthday prayer.
After school, Alina was joined by her good friends Larkin and Kate. They rode from school with Alina and her mother to the mall, where they spent a couple of hours getting Alina's ears pierced and picking up some new clothes for her birthday. Then they all were delivered to Little Khan Tengri for the festivities to begin!
Aunt Nancy agreed to help chaperone the all-nighter that Alina had asked she could have. Before lights out, however, we were joined by lots of family and friends to give our girl a great birthday party!
After the all-nighter, I took Alina, Mac and Cal to Sir Goony's and we all enjoyed a round of miniature golf. It was a great weekend!
