Happy 13th Birthday Sabriya!


We started her birthday celebration on the 17th at 8pm waiting in line at Harkins Theaters Chandler Fashion Center for the midnight premier of Breaking Dawn Part 1  -  actually I have to insert here that two of her big sisters who just love her dearly sat all day starting at 10am with chairs, jackets, blankets, phones, and homework... and held our spaces in line so that we could be in the first group of "Twi-Hards" (see definition below) to enter the theater...
<><><><><>    </>

The Urban Dictionary Definition of a Twi-Hard:

A human being who is a fan of Stephenie Meyer's 'Twilight Series', consisting of 'Twilight', 'New Moon', 'Eclipse', and 'Breaking Dawn'. Twi-Hards are usually quite addicted to the series, and would be considered 'obsessed' by some. (Formerly known as 'Twilighters')

Our group: the birthday Girl - Ms. Sabriya Smith (who YES still had to go to school the next day), Ms. Shanel Smith (sister #4), Ms. Shamesha Smith soon to be Mrs. Reinaldo Sheffield (sister #3), Ms. Shamara Smith (sister #2), Ms. Santana Smith (sister #1), Ms. Shannon Smith (sister-in-law #1 and only), Ms. Lorrie Loomer, Ms. Malaysia Iwebema (#1 niece) YESSSSSS almost 4 months old and a Twi-Hard fan even if she doesn't know it yet and of course Me (mom of those 5 beautiful sisters, Anna, author of this blog :), oh and 100's of other Twi-Hard fans...

Our Birthday Girl hard at work doing her homework for school...

Sister, sister, sister, sister, sister, sister and niece................

Enjoying time together while we wait, and wait, and wait...

PROOF that YES we actually did do this, at midnight on a school / work night and YES we were all worn out the next day and as a matter of fact, I'm still worn out today.

Umm, we made into the theatre and grabbed the best seats in the house but still had 2 and 1/2 hours of waiting before the show started and so what do you do after hours and hours of waiting in a very long line, you take a nap and when you do that and leave your camara unsupervised then this is what happens - somebody takes unauthorized photos of you, it's a good thing we weren't drooling. Haha! I still don't know who took this picture since so many heads are covered up with blankets or jackets.

Our Birthday GIRL all ready for school.

Isn't She LOVELY by Stevie Wonder
Isn't she lovely
Isn't she wonderful
Isn't she precious
Less than one minute old
I never thought through love we'd be
Making one as lovely as she
But isn't she lovely made from love

Isn't she pretty
Truly the angel's best
Boy, I'm so happy
We have been heaven blessed
I can't believe what God has done
Through us he's given life to one
But isn't she lovely made from love

Her friends at school surprised her by decorating her locker and her desk in her homeroom class with wrapping paper and bows and I believe some of them wrote happy birthday notes on the wrapping paper. Her daddy and big brother brought her a hamburger for lunch per her request and cake pops to share with her friends.

Of course her birthday celebration wouldn't be complete without celebrating with her friends at dance, so she came home from school for a quick change and hug from her 2 nephews (Trey & Boston) then off to dance she went for 2 hours of classes and more cake pops.



When Bri was a little girl, she loved the book I Love You to the Moon & Back Again and every night for years now (yes, even now) when I kiss her goodnight, I say. "I love you to the moon." and she replys "and back again."  So when I saw this necklace, I knew that it would be my special gift to her for her 13th birthday.  A sterling silver moon charm handstamped "I love you to the moon and back" and a circle disc also handstamped with her name "Sabriya Cianne" hangs on a sterling silver chain with a freshwater pearl dangling in between

Happy Birthday again Bri, I love you Mommy!

Reggie & Mesha bought her 2 new Sims games
Pirates & Nobles and Pets

From Shamara, Ken & Malaysia
Beats by Dre Headphones

From Santana she got the cutest little outfit - skirt, blouse & cardigan sweater - watch out Sabriya, Shamara was eyeing that blouse. Haha!

Mark, Shannon, Trey & Boston gave her a Visa (?) Gift Card to use wherever she'd like too on whatever she maybe didn't get from her birthday wish list.

more clothes and shoes...

and and and and and and and THE...

iPHONE from none other than
Mommy & Daddy

and by far the best present of all and actually after all is said and done we all could have saved ourselves some money because this was really what she wanted more than anything and had to wait more than 2 years to received and that would beeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeee her

So we all gathered around and helped her get it setup...  It was funny listening to her siblings tell her what she could and couldn't do on it; who could be a friend and who couldn't; Shamesha even took control of the laptop for a bit and went in and setup all the security restrictions so that pretty much no personal info is available to the public.  This is LOVE and it is PriceLESS!
Welcome to Facebook Baby Girl!


PART 5 - Her Friends SURPRISE!
Her friends are here now, decorating her room while she's at dance but she doesn't know ANYTHING about it.  So when she gets home she will be TOTALLY SuRpRiSeD! They will hang out here with her for awhile then take her to the movies.  So SWEET friends!
Pictures to follow I promise... so you will have to come back by and re-visit later to see the rest of her Birthday Celebration.
