Texas’ birthday

Since we have five kids, early on I decided that everyone would have a friend birthday party every other year instead of every year. So this year Texas had a family party and got to go out to whichever restaurant she chose. Usually when our family goes out to dinner the kids each have a different idea of where they want to go. Some like Chuck-e-Cheese’s, Wendy’s or McDonald’s others would rather go to Sweet tomatoes, Chili’s, or Applebees. So the other kids wouldn’t sway Texas, BYUFan kept her inside while the other kids got in the car and she told him where she wanted to go. In the end she chose to go to Chili’s and she had lots of good food and I didn’t have to cook dinner, that was a present that I got to share in.


When we got home we had birthday cake and ice cream. Next year she will be able to invite her friends and have a nice party.

    Yes, Caroline is is the cutest ever. I’ve been waiting for some posting updates and wondering how was the birthday. Did Caroline make it through the sickness without getting sick?
    Loved Nancy’s telling of the birthday. Precious 9 year old.

    Happy birthday Caroline! (almost a month late.) I remember going to see you in the hospital when you were a brand new baby.

    P.S. yay, Chilis — boo, McDonalds.
