Helena took us out to 98 Pounds Buffet for the second year in a row for dinner. Â Afterward, we celebrated her 14th birthday – her golden birthday – at home.
The golden theme.
This is Helena after she finally figured out that all the gold presents were for her golden birthday.
She got some jewelry, Gold Bond lotion that nobody could seem to get to come out of its pump, and some clothes.
She also got a game that Santa’s elves forgot to put on the sled a couple of weeks earlier.
Then it was time for lemon cake.
Liam and Ada were given instructions not to wake Helena up before eight and they are following orders although they are excited. Dori is still asleep, too.
Jeanette brought over presents for the kids
Liam seems happy with his gift
I have no idea what Ada was excited about here
Jeanette got the kids nuts and a nutcracker. I think that they like cracking them more than actually eating them, though.
Later that night Ada left a note for Santa along with the milk and cookies.
