Shelby's Birthday Party

Saturday was Shelby's much anticipated 5th birthday party. She will not officially be a full fist of fingers in age until Thursday. You can read about my "Black Friday" shopping experience and her birth here. She had a wonderful party. She was surrounded by family and friends who brought her some very special gifts. She received the long awaited Shrek the 3rd as well as Hairspray which she's watched three times already (Thanks Aunt "Lulu"). She got a "Step Step Dance Game" (this is her official name for it). It's a game of Twister, only it comes with a CD and you have to listen to the moves and repeat. She challenged me to a friendly game and whipped my butt. I tired out after the first two rounds. It was quite a work out. I am thinking that maybe I should cancel my Curves membership and just play this three times a week with her. I might be more likely to attend the game sessions than the work outs. She got countless "dress up outfits" and "girlie things" like make up and fingernail polish (THANKS Aunt Charie...NOT). She got some High School Musical figurines that sing the theme songs and she really likes them. We saved the best gift for last. She has named him Oscar (in honor of the ever so famous weiner). He is a black and red daschund, a/k/a "weenie dog". He is really sweet and we all love him to pieces. He came from a breeder, so he's semi-potty trained. I think he's going to fit into our family just fine. He gets along great with JJ so far. The gray kitty (Shelby finally named it Cradle Moon) will not come into the house now. It is scared out of it's mind of this dog. She was really surprised and she loved it. Overall she had a great party and I believe that her guests enjoyed themselves as well. For those of you who read this that attended...THANK YOU for coming and sharing in her special day. It means a lot!
