First, we celebrated with my family. Ashton requested a birthday dinner of Domino's pizza at my parents house and I was happy to oblige.
Ashton decorated her own cake, but we forgot to bring the candles to my parents house. My mom improvised with a votive.
All the cousins were there, but we missed Allison (my SIL), who was at a work function.
My mom & Ashton. I love this picture!
We had a great time celebrating! Ashton got a huge make-up case (which I'm extremely jealous of) from my brother and his family and a shopping date with my mom from my parents. They had a great time last Friday afternoon, just the two of them, hitting up all her favorite stores.
On Wednesday, we celebrated with Joey's mom and grandparents. We had a joint birthday dinner, since Memaw's birthday was on the 5th.

Ashton got more shopping money from Memaw & Pepaw.
Ashton & Mimi (Joey's mom). Such a great picture!
For this dinner, Ashton had requested that Joey cook ribs on the grill. Joey makes the best ribs and the kids wait all year for a birthday celebration (or other major holiday) where ribs are requested.
On Thursday, Ashton's actual birthday, Joey had to work. Ashton asked if we could go to Olive Garden, so that's what we did!
We missed Joey, but still had a good time. After dinner, we went to Target and Ashton did some shopping with a gift card she received from her grandpa (Joey's dad).
Last week was jam packed with birthday celebrations, as you can tell, but we're still not done. For the sake of words-per-post, I'll finish up with Ashton's birthday party with her friends tomorrow.
