What can I say?  I love to plan a little girls birthday.  And even if my little girl is turning 10... she's still little to me.

And this turning 10 was a big one!  We went all out with a hula Hawaii theme.

To tell you the truth I've always wanted her to pick a hula theme.

I mean, come on... she's a beauty with a flower lei and a hibiscus in her long, shiny, black hair.  Her little Irish sister could never pull off this look as well...

So I'll let the pictures do the talking.  There sure are a lot of them.  It was a grand day.  So turn on some Hawaiian music, sip on a Hawaiian drink, and enjoy...

When I was in elementary school we lived in Hawaii for a year... and instead of taking ballet or tap... I took hula.  So we did the hula of course!

And even though Anna begged me not to teach her friends the hula... her face here says it all... this is fun!

And when all of her friends left and all of the activities are over we have all of the extended family over for the "grandparent's party"

And now instead of cupcakes that she had earlier with friends... now it's a shell cake!

That whole way she's standing looks ten to me!
