Penelope gave me instructions a few days before her birthday on how to decorate her door in the morning. Here is the video of when she woke up.
Penelope didn't give me much direction this year on what sort of cake she wanted for her birthday. So I got a large back of m&ms and stuck them all over the outside of her cake. Rainbows and bright colors are always popular with little girls so I thought she would like it.
Overall she said she had a good birthday. It was different than what she is used to because she was gone most of the day. And then she was upset for the next couple of days because she didn't want to go to school she wanted to play with her new toys.
