Today was Melissa’s birthday I woke up early and decided to make cookies for Meli.

So I went down and did I made chocolate peanut butter cookies.

After that it was 8:00 and I made pancakes for the girls by this time Meli came down and I said happy birthday.

I was going to surprise her with the cookies so I hide them in a box .

She never guessed and told me I didn’t need to do it.

I was longing to tell her but it was a surprise.

Today we went to see Inception at the theater and left the house around 10:30.

Dad drove us on the way to his weddings and the movie started around 12:30 .

We got top seats and we all settled down to watch.

It was really a great movie and worth the time to see it in theater.

We got out around 3:00 and waited for Mom and had MacDonald.

Then went to see Mom.

Then we got ice cream and went home we got home around five then we all washed up and sat sown to eat the cake and ice cream and give presents

Meli was really surprised when I gave her the cookies which was just what I was hopping for.

Then we took pictures and sang Happy birthday Amy also got Meli a really pretty gift so sweet of her around the birthday table we talked about all sorts of things and the girls got into a debate about Harry Potter and Twilight and we all could not spot talking about how good Inception was.

After that well now we are all doing are own thing for a while but it is still her birthday and  it is not over we should still do something but what should we do.

Now we are all in my air conditioned room and we are all going to hang out pays games take picture and other fun things.
