A genuine BFF

Speaking of friends.....this year our little Belle conjured up a magnificent plan to celebrate turning seven. Instead of a party, she chose one very special friend to join her for a day of girl fun & pampering.

And having a November birthday can leave one with few options for a plethora of outdoor activities to choose from - especially in Winnipeg! But to make matters worse, some anonymous little germ gifted her with a bad case of the stomach flu the day before her birthday this year. Our poor Belly, woke up with a sickened belly on her seventh birthday which meant postponing all birthday activities for a later date.

But we did honour the postponement and Isla and her new BFF tore up the mall the following Saturday afternoon. I didn't realize how much fun it was going to be to witness two little girls 'experience' a mall date with such giggles and glee.

They did it all: took in a movie, got their nails done, decorated cookies and (window) shopped till they dropped! I think the most fun was had in the change room, although I felt bad for the retail clerk that had to put away all their try-ons.

But boy, did they have fun. And what a special way to make a birthday memorable with a new special friend. Thanks little Eden!

ewe...the stomach flu on her birthday?!? that is a total bummer! But, glad she was able to have an extra long birthday this year. A mall date...sounds like that would be right up Maggie's alley!
Happy Birthday Isla!!
