On June 26th, 7:00 pm @ Jones Beach Theater...One DIrection.

Naiya is going to go nuts.

This will be in place of a friend birthday party in November.

I'd rather give her an experience that I know she'll love instead of organizing a party and getting a bunch of gifts she doesn't need.

I still have unopened gifts in my closet from her last birthday. Those will go to Toys for Tots later this year.

does your school do an auction?  we take all unused gifts and donate them for our schools auction.  if not i will gladly take them from you.  sounds like you are in my area.

How did you get tickets? They've been sold out! I was going to take my neice for her birthday but ticketmaster was sold out and no way am I paying over $300 a ticket for seats that are only worth $100! Especially when I need 3 tickets.

We went on stubhub and paid through the nose. It was crazy...people are asking $3500 PER TICKET for seats up in the front.

That is fantastic and I totally know what you mean.

I took a TON of stuff from 2011 to teh Christmas Bureau in town in December. 

We have a few things from 2012 that are still not opened, and I have at least 4 things total from my MIL this year that will be going.

I love the idea of a family outing over big parties. One year we took Katie to the Renn Faire. She got to choose $100 worth of gifts, plus the few we bought her, and then we went to outback steak house where in stead of cake she got to choose what ever dessert she wanted.

This year for my birthday we are going to everland (Korean version of disney land)
