Hi! It's my Brookie! Today I am TEN!!!!!!!

Hi everyone! It's me Brookie, and today I am TEN years old!

Happy Birthday to me! :) 

I am currently 5 feet 4 inches tall and I LOVE swimming, soccer and volleyball :)

Mom thinks it's ridiculous on how tall I am!! Adam passed her up when he was 11, so I am thinking I am not far behind that! :)

We had a birthday party sleepover at my house on Saturday with three of my girlfriends, and we had sub sandwiches, ice cream cake, did a couple of crafts, watched a movie and of course stayed up WAY to late .. well, at least according to Mom and Dad we did,  I say it was just right for a Saturday night :)

I didn't want any presents from my friends, instead I asked them to bring an unwrapped toy for me to donate to Toys for Tots this Christmas season!  Mom even had me make a sign so my friends knew where to put them :)

And here is what we collected for the drive from my family and friends :)


Here are some photos from my sleepover party! :)

My cake from Cold Stone Creamery!! So GOOD! :)

My Mom found this nightgown at Justice for me :)

Mom and I put these bags together for me and my friends!  We included a brush, nail polish, eye shadow and a cute pillow :)

We had subs from Mr. Goodcents for dinner! YUMMY! :)

Us eating and Dandy looking for scraps on the floor!  He is such a beggar! LOL! :)

Then we did a couple of crafts :)

Including these yarn pumpkins my Mom heard about from Cindy! :)

Ready for CAKE! :)

Then my friends signed the back of my nightgown! :)

And then we played with our goodies from our gift bags :)


Then we watched "The Croods" while eating popcorn! :)

And can't have a sleepover without a pillow fight! :)

Then Sunday morning, we had DONUTS!!! :)

And then on Sunday night, the family and I went to dinner at Cracker Barrel :)

I had the catfish! YUMMY! :)

Then we all came back to my house and opened presents for me! :)

Now I am off to school -- and have to stop and get cupcakes for my classmates to celebrate my big day, and a SPECIAL cupcake for the principal of my school -- her and I SHARE a birthday, and I always bring her a cupcake on our birthday! :)

Have a great day everyone!  I know I will! 

Brookie :)
