We have had so much fun celebrating McKenzie's 12th birthday. Her festivities began last Sunday with a family party at Granny's house. On Monday, Andy, Jan, Cassie and Caleb invited us to go to Toyo, a Japanese Steakhouse in Oxford. We had a blast! Believe it or not we had never been to one and they wanted us to try it out with them. The food was great and the entertainment was too! I don't think Matt knew what to think about it. His eyes were as big as quarters while the chef prepared our food. At the end of the meal, they brought McKenzie a birthday dessert. Like we needed anymore food, we wanted to take them to Holli's downtown because they had never been to it. A few of us ended up with ice cream.
On McKenzie's actual birthday, Cassie and Jan were so sweet to take her on a surprise outing. They went to get a pedicure and then to McAlister's for lunch. McKenzie had so much fun and couldn't wait to tell me all about it.
She wanted a party this year with all of her friends. So we agreed and McKenzie chose Lost Pizza Company for the place. It is a favorite of her and her friends. I have never seen girls eat so much! We started out with barbeque nachos for them to snack on while waiting for everyone to arrive. They ate pizza and we ended with birthday cake and dessert pizza. The girls just sat around and visited and played on their phones. Wow times have changed. I use to have to come up with ways to entertain the kids, now its easier. We appreciate everyone making it a great night! Here are pictures from the party...
